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

  • Melania Trump’s Shoes  –  First Lady Melania Trump may have worn a $51,500 jacket in Sicily last month, but her shoes are only worth $90. Well, that’s what you’ll shell out for a pair of tour tickets to retrace her Slovenian footsteps anyway. This new five-hour walking tour includes several stops in her hometown of Sevnica. Band-aids not included.  (Market Watch)
  • Living in Qatar Now  –  If you read a lot of travel blogs, you’d think the only worry about the current Qatar situation is losing access to a large chunk of luxury airline seats. Jen and I have several friends who live in Doha so we have been able to get a better perspective from the ground. Elena from Muslim Travel Girl is one. Her update yesterday was a nice Ramadan update from the “inside”.  (Muslim Travel Girl)
  • Crazy Houseboats  –  Property taxes have you underwater? Perhaps a houseboat is the answer. Here are some crazy houseboats around the world for floating home inspiration. (Daily Mail)
