Resurfacing this linguistics quiz that predicts where in the United States you're from based on the kinds of words you use after going off on a tangent about words describing big sandwiches during a conversation on the . Kudos to our intern Rachel for the link. – Daniel, Popupla editor

The luxury-hipstery camping phenomena is hitting Japan hard. Take Fujino Kirameki Fuji Gotemba, for instance, an adorably manicured lodging site at the base of Mt. Fuji. Simply designed wood box cabins have retractable tent ceilings, campfires, hammocks, barbecue pits, outdoor baths, and WiFi for instant 'Gramming. There's a play area for children and a shiny VW bus to transport guests to and fro. Staff will prepare multi-course meals for you on your terrace. A 90-minute drive from Tokyo, it makes for a fun (random!) weekend jaunt at the end of a whirlwind city trip. – Jeralyn, editorial director

Love this roundup of stylish apartment spaces to rent in New York City from Trendland. They're located throughout Brooklyn and Manhattan, come at a variety of price points, and make a great hotel alternative if you and five other friends want to shack up for a low-key stay in the city. – Daniel, Popupla editor

Everyone's favorite southern lifestyle publication opened up a brick-and-mortar restaurant and bar that highlights the magazine's favorite local artisans and small-batch brands. Think elevated versions of club sandwiches, mint juleps, and boiled peanuts in a handsome setting with a lively social vibe. No membership required. – Jeralyn, editorial director

As as much as we love going upstate in NY, we know there are other parts of the East Coast we haven’t explored that are equally as beautiful and close to home. So we drove up to Rhode Island for what turned out to be a great weekend of eating, drinking, and soaking in New England coastal lifestyle. – Marcus,

The three block stretch of Flinders Lane from Spring Street to Swanston Street has become Melbourne’s golden row of fine casual dining. Kisumé Melbourne is yet another brilliant example of Asian food served and set in an Australian way. Chris Lucas opened Kisumé Melbourne in May 2017 with an appreciation for New York style sushi houses in mind. The menu features a range of omakases to suit most budgets. – Mark,

Leave it to Oslo to have a floating sauna made out of driftwood moored across a stunning Opera House in the center of town. Sørengas Baste is a labor of love for some locals who built it from various bits and pieces they found, including remains from a local music festival. Don’t expect anything fancy, just charm. The sauna is wood fired and has a sauna-master that makes sure it's toasty before you arrive. All that’s left is to strip down (but no “explicit public nakedness” is the rule) and get your sweat on. -Sinead,
