TGIF! Welcome to the second edition of our weekly round-up of interesting stuff we’ve come across on the internet.

Cinque Terre, Italian Riviera

  • First up is Cinque Terre in the Italian Riveria (above). Everywhere we go on the internet, we’re constantly reminded of how beautiful and magical Cinque Terre is, such as this post on A Cup of Jo. We are so there!
  • We’ve all had those times when we’re traveling and we come across a great vendor we want to tell the world about, but can’t. Well not anymore! Meet The Traveler’s Collection, a website where you introduce the artisans & vendors you find abroad to web shoppers searching for one-of-a-kind goods from around the world. It’s a great way to support the communities you visit, and find cool stuff!
  • We also fell back in love with Foodzie.com, a website where you can discover and order gourmet food items from small food producers all over the US. I actually ordered my bacon-obsessed grandma some Bacon Jam for Christmas last year and let’s just say, I am officially her favorite granddaughter.
  • Lastly, we never cease to be impressed with people who build their own weekend getaway cottages. Check out this article about the Dobbs family in British Columbia, who built a 180 square foot house in the wilderness of Gambier Island, BC, with zero electricity or running water. Snaps for them!
