This Deserves a Post
Draplin is driving across the west from Oregon to Michigan and took this photo in Idaho. Seriously amazing. Look at the type, the claim, the optimism!
On a side note, this gets me really excited to visit Idaho some day. I only have Idaho and Alaska left to visit and I will have been to all Fifty Nifty United States.

Unless you fly first class, it isn't a very comfortable sleep in an airplane. Swedish entrepreneur Oscar Dios is out to change that with Jumbo Hostel - a hostel built inside a grounded Boeing 747. Read more about it here.
Looks like I'll be flying through Stockholm sometime!

Jet Blue Terminal 5
I've been through my fair share of airport terminals and food courts - most of them with seemingly one soul reason for existence - to rip you off and serve you bad food. So this sneak peek at Jet Blue's new Terminal 5 food court (which opens October 1st) really makes me want to book my next flight through JFK just to have a pleasant dining experience.

Pure madness! You can read more on this Wikipedia page.

Abandonded Vacation Homes in Taiwan
"These very crazy pod-tastic vacation homes were built as beach getaways for Taipei's middle-class in the 1960s. Each are said to have been abandoned not long after they were built because several mishaps during construction and typhons led inhabitants and locals to deem the sites cursed." Awesome! via Coudal.
