There’s A Hotel In Australia That Has A Dog As Its Concierge

When guests check into the Park Hyatt Melbourne, they are now greeted by the sweetest of pups. Mr. Walker is an 18-month-old former guide dog for Guide Dogs Victoria. The Park Hyatt Melbourne was made his new home back in July and guests couldn’t be happier about it. While we’re pretty sure he’s not that good at answering phones or scheduling clients, he has taken on a few responsibilities around the place. When needed, Mr. Walker greets guests on arrival, attends client meetings, and walks guests around the grounds, but only by request. Source 1 Source 1 But just because Mr. Walker has to work a lot, doesn’t mean he can’t kick back, relax, and enjoy some yoga by the pool. Before Mr. Walker, though, there was Parker the Pug over at the Park Hyatt Chicago. Parker has similar responsibilitie...

A must-do item on every first-timer’s visit to Paris is to see the iconic Eiffel Tower all lit up and sparkling against the night sky. As any tourist’s impulse would be, multiple photographs will want to be taken of the dazzling spectacle, but maybe don’t pull that camera out just yet. According to Snopes, “Distributing photographs of the night-lit Eiffel Tower is a violation of the artist’s copyright.” If you turn to the FAQ section of Société d’Exploitation de la Tour Eiffel, which is the company that owns and operates the tower, it reads, “The views from the Eiffel Tower are rights-free. Permission and rights must be obtained from the Société d’Exploitation de la Tour Eiffel for the publication of photographs of the illuminated Eiffel Tower.” Source 1 To recap, the Eiffel Tower itself i...

U.S. National Parks Will Return to Selling Bottled Water

The National Park Service announced that they were lifting the six-year ban on the selling of plastic water bottles within certain parks. The Grand Canyon, Zion National Park, Bryce Canyon National Park, and Mount Rushmore are just a handful of the 23 sites where the bottles were banned. “While we will continue to encourage the use of free water bottle filling stations as appropriate, ultimately it should be up to our visitors to decide how best to keep themselves and their families hydrated during a visit to a national park,” said Michael T. Reynolds, the organization’s acting national director. Source 1 The ban on water bottles was passed in 2011 after they caused a massive amount of litter. Oddly enough, other bottled drinks were not banned and the International Bottled Water Associatio...

These Four Beaches Are The Only In The World To Contain Naturally Green Sand

When we think beautiful, pristine beaches, green sand usually isn’t the first thing that comes to mind. While these beaches are not completely covered with bright green sand, large portions of them do contain crystalline mineral particles called olivine. Olivine is a heavy green magnesium iron silicate that does not easily wash out to sea. Only four beaches in the world contain this mineral, offering a truly unique beach experience that cannot be missed. Papakolea Beach in Hawaii Source 1 The first beach can be found way down south in the good ‘ol USA. It’s not the kind of south you would think of, rather South Point which is located on Hawaii’s Big Island and is the southernmost point in the United States. Papakolea Beach is where you’ll find the green sand, but it can only be reached by ...
