The New York Times Op-Ed columnist (and Fathom husband) Ben Schott reeled us in — hook, line, and sinker — with this list of 1920s beach lingo. The illustrations, by Eleanor Davis, are the cat's meow. – Jeralyn, editorial director
On my next trip I'll be referencing Eat This Poem's literary city guides designed for bookworms who love food. – Berit, assistant editor
Ever wonder what it would be like to pick up and move to Sweden? Greg Poehler (brother of Amy Poehler) has a funny new comedy recounting his expereince as a US transplant. Watch here. – Berit, assistant editor
