Lady Gaga recently passed through the Pacific Northwest, and decided a leather-studded dress-and-shoe combo were the perfect option for the Vancouver International Airport. Knowing that she is the patron saintess of newelty, we had to post this photo of her in action. Lady Gaga in travel action is a mighty amazing thing.

I think when I die I want my ashes scattered at sea. Or off the top of a mountain. The idea of being buried in a crypt or some spooky cemetery with an elaborate gravestone conjures images that don’t equate resting in peace. With that said, however, I share Lia’s fascination with graveyards, and when [...]

Is it creepy to sightsee a cemetery, camera in hand? I had a blast at Paris’ Cimetière du Père Lachaise (with a great interactive tour here), so it didn’t strike me as weird to bust out the photography when at Westwood Village Memorial Park Cemetery, Marilyn Monroe’s final resting place.

Today’s Guardian article by Viv Groskop about traveling on “feminist pilgrimages” entertained me. With a mixture of embarrassment and sincerity, the author tried to make a point to her daughter–essentially–about how great it is to be a woman by dragging her around to see statues of ladies. I’m sympathetic to this idea because my own my [...]

So hooray for the Dutch, the modeling world’s new phenomenon. Maybe, as the Brazilian models coincided with the (in my mind, unfortunate) global trend of the Brazilian, these Dutch lovelies can help bring about a more bike lanes, sensible and accessible health care, and a widened, open-minded world view.

While there are exhaustive “Lost” lists online, I’m not going to recommend you to to a bank or bus stop just because Kate had a robbery there–it’s still just a bus stop or bank. These places are worth seeing for their own sightseeing value. Except for Liliha–which felt so much like a locals place that I was intimidated to take photos–all the following recommendations are in the photo gallery below.
