That One Summer I Became Obsessed with Bubble Tents


Aesthetically perfect for your average person with ADD & OCD, just horrible for people with anxiety. Or people on cocaine or meth. Horrible for terrorists.  

I know these are built for raves and parties but what IF you decided to live in one?! 


This one is actually a AirBnB in Indonesia 
The page says~Bubble Hotel Bali is a kind of glamorous camping placed between lush jungle and Indian ocean. The beach is very secluded due.
There is electricity inside the bubble and you can charge your phones and other gadgets. There is also LED light around the bubble. Every couple or guest will have private shower and WC next to the bubble. Bath towels are provided as well as shampoo and shower gel.Bubble Hotel Bali is located in Uluwatu area which is well-known for Uluwatu Temple and famous Kecak dance! It's $130.00 a night. 


This looks so enticing, kind of looks like me too

Ten Thousand Waves~A Japanese Hot Tub & Spa in the Hills of Santa Fe, New Mexico



Since the time I was a teenager in the 80's, I have been aquainted with Ten Thousand Waves. I actually lived right across the road from them in a large rented adobe with my uncle and his Rock-a Billy band. At that time, memberships for the public tub was only $30.00 a month! Although they have gotten a bit more expensive they have added private rooms, a larger selection of tubs and have had a full staff for massage now for a nunber of years along with overnight lodging.

Memories of The French Quarter with Xana & Parade Schedule for Mardi Gras 2014!



There was a time when I really wanted to and even secretly believed that I'd end up living in New Orleans. Then Hurricane Katrina happened and the fantasy was ruined.



Here is what I can tell you about my time there. I was having an affair with this amazing neon artist that had the most beautiful breasts I have ever seen on a woman, to this day. And trust me, I've seen a lot! Okay, I'm getting off track. So, I used to go over to her house and help her construct her neon art. She was a well known and successful artist and did some historic installations like this one below, which sits above Santa Fe, New Mexico. I actually had photos of me here but I can't find them at the moment.

Haunted & Mysterious Bars Around the World



“What’ll it be Mr. Torrence?”

By Carolynn Chapman
In honor of Halloween, the Whiskey Goldmine thought it would be a good idea to warn our readers whether or not their favorite watering hole was occupied by demons, ghostly ghouls, portals to hell, or just playful poltergeists.  The list below is a compilation of the scariest places to have a drink.  You might not be scared, but the walking dead have been known to take advantage of the inebriated so watch your step.

Romantic Getaways ~A Night at New Mexico's Bishop's Lodge


In every state there is that one really romantic and mysterious hotel that you have always wanted to stay at. In Northern New Mexico, it would be The Bishops Lodge. I have somewhat of an obligation to tell you that I myself have not spent more than a few nights there, but oddly enough~and trust me, my family found it odd and cringed at what it must have cost him~but my grandfather actually lived at Bishop's Lodge for up to maybe a year. My grandfather was very eccentric and of course -- an artist/photographer... so this was not surprising to me. My dad would laugh at my grandfather's response to being asked "Dad, why are you living at The Bishop's Lodge?" His response was "The maids treat me very well." People familiar with Hollywood's famed Chateau Marmont will understand this completely.

A Night At The Sorrento


A city as old and diverse as Seattle is bound to have some skeletons. Luckily for you, you don't have to go digging for them. All you need to do is rent a hotel room for the night. It seems as though Seattle's past remains "alive" and well within the walls of some of Seattle's oldest, and most haunted, hotels.
