Tourists have a bad reputation, and, often, with good reason. There are a lot of terrible, overentitled people out there who ruin traveling for everyone else. Here’s how you can avoid being one of them.
Sleeping on vacation is overrated—if you prefer waking up to an invisible hand caressing your hair, we’ve got just the accommodations for you! These eerie estates, harrowing hotels, and shadowy inns are all sure to give you a probably-traumatic good time.
Traveling slowly is a special pleasure—and you should do it. Next time you have to drive long-distance, take an extra two days and go slowly through the backroads. Or take a train across the country instead of flying. Or best of all, spend a few weeks cycling or walking somewhere. The slower you go, the better.
