If you’re not dressing up and tricking or treating at neighbors doors this weekend, then cozy up with these great weekend reads that we discovered this week.
Cage Diving with Great White Sharks
“There are some things I never thought I’d do in my life. Don’t get me wrong; I think we’re capable of anything. Some experiences are so petrifying though that they are unfathomable. That was cage diving with great white sharks for me. It combines all of my greatest fears in one situation. Using a regulator under water, being surrounded by massive, man-eating monsters in the ocean and being confined to a cage were the epitome of torture, but I learned that knowledge breeds comfort in even the most terrifying situations.”- READ MORE from Bucket List Publications
Tennent’s Lager Tour at Wellpark Brewery in Glasgow
“Okay confession time, I drink… a lot sometimes, but I had never heard of Tennent’s Lager (or any Tennent’s beer for that matter) before visiting Scotland. I love a good brewery tour though, so I thought I would check out this tiny brewery in Glasgow.
However, turns out that this “tiny” brewery is a household name in Scotland with a brewing history that goes back more than 450 years. There was even a time when Tennent’s was the largest exporter of bottled beer in the world.” – READ MORE from Mags on the Move
Musselicious: Penn Cove Mussels
“If there is one thing I like as much as I like to travel, it would have to be great food. Combine the two and you have yourself a trip of epic proportions! One of my favorite things to eat is seafood. Fish, shrimp, scallops, clams, oysters, mussels, you name it. They can be raw, baked, fried, or steamed. I’m a very adventurous eater. Anything, except olives I always say.” – READ MORE from Joeography
Swimming Against the Current in Cancun
“There will be no sharks, right?” I nervously asked in a low voice and gestured “no” by waving my index finger, staring at the ocean below me.
He laughed and I read his lips, “no sharks. Trust me —- no sharks in (pointing at the ocean) here. Only (stretching his arms as pointing somewhere far) cold waters.” His mouth opened but no sounds came out. Prior the conversation, I took off my hearing aids to prepare for jumping overboard.” – READ MORE from Deafinitely Wanderlust
Luwak Coffee, A Very Unique Brew
‘Did you know that Bali is one of the producers of the most expensive coffee in the world? This Luwak Coffee is a very unique brew. Roasted from beans that have been through the digestive system of a civet, a cat-like, mostly nocturnal mammal. The civet eats the coffee berries for their fleshy pulp, but the beans are left intact all the way through the digestive system. The enzymes inside the civet’s stomach extract the bitterness from the coffee, making Luwak coffee smooth and mild with a sweet aftertaste.” – READ MORE from A Hole in My Shoe
12 Unique Landscapes in Iceland
“It is wrong to assume that because of its name Iceland is a white land full of ice. Quite the opposite – it’s the land of color, greenery and stunningly bright landscapes. When it comes to nature, Iceland has it all: volcanoes, waterfalls, mountains and even black beaches and pink geysers. Don’t believe me? Then check out these 12 unique landscapes you only get to see when you visit Iceland.” – READ MORE from A Russian Abroad
Visiting the Oldest New Orleans Cemetery
“On a natural ridge extending upriver from French Quarter is the oldest New Orleans cemetery, Lafayette No. 1. Covering a small city block, it’s a family graveyard in a residential neighborhood, the beautiful Garden District.” – READ MORE from Trip Wellness
Becoming a Maniac at Halloween Horror Nights 25
“I have a confession to make: when it comes to fall, I’m as basic as it gets. I love it all: sweaters, boots, hot seasonal drinks, pumpkin carving. Of course, I don’t get to indulge my love of cozy sweaters too often…thanks a lot, Orlando. What this city lacks in seasonably cool weather, however, it more than makes up for with one of my favorite events of the year.” – READ MORE from Adventuring the Great Wide Somewhere
Hey Hey, It’s the Snow Monkeys of Japan
“People say they monkey around. If monkey around means frolic in an onsen hot spring, then yes, yes they do. We wanted to witness this adorableness in person and traveled to Jigokudani Yaen Kōen (aka Jigokudani Snow Monkey Park) in Japan to do so.” READ MORE from The Travel Sisters
