Gypsy Bowtop Caravans

5

Stop what you’re doing! Drop that half-chewed biscuit! It’s time to book a flight to Bristol. How else will you spend a night in a Gypsy Bowtop caravan, complete with painted doors and curvy, wallpapered walls, after all? Created by a British fella named Greg, the wagons are reminiscent of those used by the Romany people in the 1950s – they’re towable, surprisingly spacious and functional inside, not to mention being cute as heck. They’re available to hire (or even buy if you fancy a life on the road), but if you’re unlikely to make it Bristol way anytime soon, you can also just have a squiz at the sweet designs over here.

This Awesome T-shirt Lets You Communicate With Almost Anyone In The World

21
Traveling is already stressful enough, but you can get into some really awkward or unfortunate situations if there’s a language barrier in play. Wouldn’t it be great if you could effortlessly communicate with anyone on the road? By effortlessly, we mean non-verbally. By non-verbally, we mean: with the t-shirt you have on your back (duh!). That is an excellent idea that Swiss friends George, Steven and Florian had one day, because they were fed up with drawing signs and symbols on scrap pieces of paper when they needed to communicate something simple to a foreigner while traveling. And thankfully, they put their plan into action. Iconspeak is the ultimate t-shirt for a traveler, with all the universal icons you will ever need to communicate...

5 Movie-Inspired Train Trips You Can Take in Real Life

00-holding-movie-inspired-train-trips
With the prevalence of Uber and the promise of commercial space flights in the near future, the idea of traveling on a train may seem a bit antiquated. Seeing a country or continent from a club car used to be one of the most luxurious ways to travel, and thanks to iconic scenes in classic films—the steam rising from the engine at platform 9 3/4 in the Harry Potter movies or a glamorous Lauren Bacall dressed up in the candlelit dining car in Murder on the Orient Express—the train endures in our imagination as a magical and romantic way to see the world. In real life, there happens to be several ways to experience these on-screen journeys, through rail itineraries...

8 Reasons You Should Go Abroad Alone (Even If That Scares You)

girl-429380_1920
Thinking about traveling all by your lonesome might conjure up some very strong feelings for you, and I doubt they’re all rainbows and puppies. Hollywood isn’t really doing us favors with blockbuster movies like Taken that fill our heads with scary thoughts about being all by yourself out there. But don’t be fooled. Going overseas solo can be an incredible, life-changing experience — and it doesn’t have to be an unsafe endeavor (which we’ll get into more below). Up until recently, I was never much of a traveler. I had just graduated from my Master’s program and was living in Boston in 2013. The farthest I had ever gone was Cape Cod. A few drastic events in my life changed my mindset, though, and I woke up one morning with the fierce urge to see...

Killing it at Coachella and during any visit to Palm Springs is typically all about where you stay, what you wear and the shows at which you snag VIP standing room. But, where you eat in one of California's best food hubs (its good weather and proximity to Central America give it access to some of the country's freshest ingredients and top notch Mexican food) is also highly likely to make your trip that much more memorable. Here, our editors' picks for the best meals at music (and fashion's) top festival.

Where to Stay in Cuba for the Chanel Show

landscape-1459961000-20160228-134149
Karl Lagerfeld is known for his over-the-top fashion shows set in exotic locations. Chanel has circled the globe, from Salzburg to Seoul, Dallas, and Dubai, to present its twice-yearly pre-collections, and this spring, the fashion house will descend the most-talked-about island nation of the year: Cuba. On May 3, Chanel will show its Resort 2017 collection in Havana. Invitations to top editors and influencers in the fashion industry are out. But travel details are still up in the air. Chanel has a reputation of being able to pull anything off, but a luxury event of epic proportions in a communist country with still-strict visa, commerce, and trade laws? It will be interesting to watch the production unfold via Instagram as always...

Why Victoria, British Columbia, Should Be Your Next Weekend Getaway

00-holding-travel-guide-victoria-vancouver-island-british-columbia-canada
From Seattle’s ’90s grunge scene to the coffeehouses and food trucks that made Portland one of the most influential food cities in the country, the Pacific Northwest has for decades been America’s capital region of cool. Just north of the border, Vancouver, with its drizzly weather and craft breweries, is a Canadian cousin to those hipster havens. But Victoria, on the southern tip of Vancouver Island in British Columbia, has traditionally been left out of all that cool talk. Maybe it’s that the mountains and water that lie between Victoria and the mainland push all the clouds and rain and existential moodiness back toward the east (with an average of 2,183 hours of sunshine a year, Victoria is one of Canada’s...
