I am so loving the newsfeed that shows up above my Google inbox. It used to annoy me, because it displays news I’ve no interest in, but once I’ve customized it, it’s just priceless. Today’s link comes courtesy of Fodor’s.
About to head out on a trip and wondering if you’ll ever encounter a squat toilet (and wondering how you’ll pee without getting any part of your body wet)? The Bathroom Diaries gives you a review of toilets available anywhere in the globe. In each country, there’s a city list, then a list of available toilets within that city. It gives the rating, hours, fee (if any), details and yes, style.
The best part for me is the Golden Plunger. The Golden Plunger is an award for the best bathrooms around the world. Other categories includes Best Bathroom for a Safari Adventure, Best Bathroom for Extroverts, Best Bathroom to Embrace Materialism or to Renounce It, once and for all!, and Best Bathroom to Evoke Homesickness (aka the Best Argument for Constipation).
If that’s not enough, head on to the Essays page to read about Tawdry Tales of Tacky Toilets. Simply awesome.
