Now that we’re halfway through the spring semester, it’s safe to start thinking about summer travels. Need a unique destination? You might poke around on Atlas Obscura, which describes itself as “a compendium of the world’s wonders, curiosities, and esoterica.” There’s some absolutely fascinating stuff here, like the “Bone Church” in Kutna Hora, Czech Republic (I visited here a few years ago–simply amazing) and Vardzia Cave Monastery in Aspindza, Georgia (the country Georgia, that is). Closer to home, you can check out the Mutter Museum of “medical oddities” in Philadelphia or Chicago’s own esoterica. Safe travels, friends.
