It's isolated, sure, but Siberia is full of once-in-a-lifetime experiences you'd never expect were there. It's time to stop hating on our frosty friend. Let's go TO Russia, with love. 1.

On average, you'll find about six Siberians per square mile. Ahh, tranquility. More →

Three words should describe your travels as a twenty-something: beautiful, rough, messes. Dancing until the sun comes up, paying the least amount of money for the least fanciest experiences out there -- that's what this is about.

was once told by an Italian friend, “the world is divided into two: The Tuscans and the Jealous.” Standing outside the Palazzo Vecchio I was forced to agree. There, beneath the imposing presence of Michelangelo’s David (a copy – the original was moved indoors away from the pigeons about 140 years ago ) I was surrounded by art and architecture that I felt I had known all my life.
