Feeling Blue? Consider a Visit To The Happiest Country In The World

00-holding-happiest-countires-in-the-world
Wondering if you’re happy? Ask yourself the following: “Imagine a ladder, with steps numbered from zero at the bottom to 10 at the top. The top of the ladder represents the best possible life for you and the bottom of the ladder represents the worst possible life for you. On which step of the ladder would you say you personally feel you stand at this time?” That’s the main question social scientists asked those surveyed in the annual World Happiness Report, the results of which were released today. So which country’s citizens answered most positively this year? Norway, whose people reported feeling the satisfaction equivalent of ladder step level 7.54 on average. That’s just .02 “steps” higher than those in the second happiest...

This Dog Backpack Makes It Easy to Take Your Pet Everywhere You Go

031517-pet-backpack
There's nothing that dampens the excitement of leaving for a trip quite like a sad-eyed dog moping in the window as you pull away. Luckily, if you have a small dog (or you're really, really strong), Ruffit Dog Carriers has invented the travel accessory every pet owner has been missing: a backpack that comfortably straps your pup to your back, so you never have to be separated again. Picture this: You're walking through the cobblestone streets of Florence, your pup taking in the sights, sounds, and smells along with you. Or, maybe you're hiking through Canada's national parks (for free), without worrying about him chasing bison and getting lost in the woods. Plus, just imagine what a conversation starter (and adorable photo opp)...

Where To Stay, Eat, And Drink In Joshua Tree And Yucca Valley

landscape-1489427119-diagonal-three-comp
Joshua Tree and Yucca Valley are located in San Bernadino County, California in the Mojave Desert, the driest desert in North America. The area is outrageously beautiful, with the San Bernadino mountains in the background and open expanses that stretch for miles. Winding through the roads, among the sand and shrubs, you might start to feel like you're on some sort of movie set. And if you make your way to Pioneertown–as I did—you'll *definitely* feel that way (because it once was one). At night, the sight of the stars and the cool air will make you stop and take it all in. It's a must-see in the U.S. and can be done in a short amount of time if...

JOSHUA TREE NATIONAL PARK

Perhaps Dr. Seuss spotted one of these trees as he created his illustrations, because they look surprisingly cartoonish and similar to the trees in his work. Joshua Tree National Park in Southern California is filled with the trees, which live for about 150 years.

SALAR DE UYUNI

This surreal salt flat is the world's largest, with 4,500 square miles of land, salt mounds and the occasional wild ostrich spotting. Found in southwestern Bolivia, the reflective Salar is known for causing optical illusions that make tiles of salt seem endless and the sky seem underfoot.
