Maybe it’s that moment of anxiety right before you remove your skivvies. Maybe you have no qualms at all about getting naked. Either way, there’s something about skinny dipping that feels like freedom. To honor the pastime, a group called The Skinny Dipping Report has been putting together a photo calendar every year since 2012. It features people around the world skinny dipping in some truly beautiful spots and the stories behind the photos, along with some helpful recs of what to do and where to stay/eat/drink nearby. If you feel like sharing your photos from this year’s adventures, TSDR also accepts submissions to be considered for next year’s calendar.
Paris. Berlin. Barcelona. Those are all great cities, but now there’s a site out there dedicated to bringing you to some of the offbeat, breathtaking places on Planet Earth. Whimsy offers a small selection of flights to places like Myanmar, Musandam or Kerala.

The smart folks at Drifter had a great idea – if the nylon they used to make parachutes was strong enough to safely land a human, wouldn’t it make one heck of a sturdy bag? Not only is the Fly Pack more durable than the average bag, it’s lighter too and includes an inside zipper pocket, adjustable shoulder straps and top and bottom web loops. Best of all, it’s made in the motherfuckin’ US of A!
