Mood. Who's ready for football season to start?


Billy McFarland, best known for diving in a little too deep as the co-organizer of the infamous Fyre Festival, is moving back in with mom and dad after being arrested for wire fraud connected to the disastrous festival and released on a $300,000 bail. That puts his luxury penthouse in New York City’s Meatpacking district — which he rented for $25,000 a month — up sale. It’s listed at $7.5 million, and looks like it has some pretty sweet views (and a really nice bathroom). Are you interested in moving in?

Tag someone below who would love this: @airbnb is flying two lucky guests to the Oregon coast to be among the first to witness the eclipse before it crosses the U.S. for the first time in 99 years. You'll spend the night in a transparent geodesic dome, complete with an observation deck and a variety of telescopes, with a scholar and National Geographic photographer before waking up and boarding a private jet to the Oregon coastline. The jet will move directly into the moon’s shadow and will be “suspended within the path of totality, potentially extending eclipse viewing by up to one minute.” Insane, right? Who'll be entering?

Kimi Werner is a real-life Lara Croft: a freediver, U.S. champion spearfisher, and (we’d argue) a bonafide mermaid. If you want your heart to pound and your mouth to water, follow the link in our bio to dive in with RCL adventure correspondent @KingaPhilipps as she talks with @kimi_swimmy about passion, adventure, and the importance of being your authentic self.

Who here would go hiking in Chile?

Just weeks before Marilyn Monroe died, photographer George Barris snapped these photos of the Hollywood starlet. They’ve now hit the auction block, and with the 55th anniversary of her death tomorrow, we wanted to take the opportunity to look back and admire the “Some Like it Hot” star.

Owners of E.B. White’s charming country estate have just placed this stunning farm on the market for $3.7 million. Comprised of 12 rooms, six working fireplaces, three and a half baths and 19th-century stenciling on stairway walls, there is one component of this home that sets it apart from the rest. The property’s barn is immortalized as the setting for one of world literature’s most beloved children’s books: Charlotte’s Web.

This photo just won the prestigious 2017 National Geographic Travel Photographer of the Year contest. This incredible shot was taken by Mexican photographer Sergio Tapiro Velasco during a powerful eruption at Colima Volcano in Mexico on December 13th, 2015.

The following story accompanies this photo, which was shortlisted by @RoyalMuseumsGreenwich for the Astronomy Photographer of the Year competition. Follow the link in our bio for the full gallery 📸 Ignite the Lights: After a long hike from his small cabin to Kvalvika, Lofoten Islands in Norway, the photographer arrived at the slopes above the beach around midnight. During the hike the auroral display was relatively weak, but when he made it to the beach the sky ignited in a colourful spectacle of greens and purples framed by the mossy, green landscape. The image is stacked from six different exposures to combat high ISO and thermal noise in the foreground. The sky was added from one of these exposures.
