    For times like these, you’re better off if you try to look on the quirky side of the art world, and stick to museums that are far from stuffy and somber, and are downright irreverent. Have a good laugh, stare with incredulity or shudder with disgust while visiting some of the most unusual art museums in the world.

    Hot springs are hardly unusual, and you can usually find a few of them in whichever corner of the world you happen to be visiting. But while a regular nice hot spring is generally a hole in the ground with steamy water and surrounded by natural beauty, some hot springs have a little something extra too.

    A couple of hours in a thermal pool will recharge your batteries and relax you, but if the hot spring is also unusual to say the least, then all the better. If you prefer hot springs that are not contained and manicured, like in a resort, and instead you’d rather go for something natural, wild, and out of the ordinary, then you will most definitely enjoy a dip in the weirdest hot springs in the world.

    For those who keep it, Lent is far from being the most pleasant time of the year – being deprived of your favorite foods or other indulgences is no small sacrifice for many.

    This is why carnival season, right before Lent begins, is a time of revelry and self-indulgence, so that people can have one last blast before staying away from all the fun for a while. At least, this was the original purpose of the carnival, but today it’s a great opportunity to party weather you’re religious or not.

    Some of the biggest and most vibrant carnivals take place in South America, with the Rio as the uncrowned queen of them all. But the Rio carnival is far from being the only one, so if you find yourself somewhere on the continent during the upcoming months, check out some of the best carnivals in South America.
