Welcome to the Round Up – our recurring compilation of the interesting, intriguing, and just plain weird things we find on the internet.

  • Karaoke Road Trip  –  Any travel article that can work in the quote “it’s a little dirty, a little nasty, a little cheap” is a must read. And it’s karaoke… did you need another excuse? I suspect Jennifer and her girlfriends have already planned their own weekend karaoke road trip based on these suggestions. (The New York Times)
  • Slide On Down  –  A new 20-floor hotel in Vietnam will feature slides between floors instead of stairs. Let’s hope the elevator doesn’t ever break. I remember walking up those things on the playground was quite a pain! (Magic of Miles)
  • Ethical Travel  –  If that all sounds like too much fun, here are five ways you can improve the world while you travel. Karaoke and slides are not on the list.  (Market Watch)
