Get back to nature and help spirits reincarnate.

One of the most significant innovations of World of Warcraft: Shadowlands is the Covenant system, which lets players choose one of four factions to work with throughout the expansion’s endgame. Each has its cast of characters, zone, quests, and rewards, so choosing who to join can be hard. If you’re a fan of Night Elves, Druids, or the Emerald Dream, you might want to consider the Night Fae.

Watch Kesha Travel the World With a Cat-Person in Her Absurdist ‘Little Bit of Love’ Video

Ever since the world stopped to help fight the COVID-19 pandemic, everyone has been dreaming of someday leaving self-isolation and getting to travel the world again. Lucky for fans, Kesha is giving us a look at what the world looks like for her.

On Tuesday (August 4), Kesha released her official music video for “Little Bit of Love” off of her latest album High Road. The new visual, shot entirely in quarantine by Kesha and her boyfriend Brad using an iPhone and a green screen, sees Kesha dreaming about a whirlwind adventure with her cat, Mr. Peep$.

The clip opens with Kesha fighting off the quarantine blues by snuggling up for a nap with her cat. Quickly, the video transforms into a fantastical dreamscape where Mr. Peep$ (now played by Brad wearing a black bodysuit and a cat mask) and Kesha travel all throughout the globe, causing mayhem wherever

As the World Shut Down, Travel Agents Went to Work

“Your call is important to us. All our representatives are currently assisting other customers. Your estimated wait time is two to three hours.”

That was a message a lot of travelers heard in March as they called into online booking sites attempting to rebook their travel plans or get a refund. When they finally were able to speak to a live person, in many cases, they weren’t offered much help.

Michelle Fee heard these horror stories too often.

“We heard of some people waiting on hold for over seven hours only to be told there was nothing they could do to help them,” Fee says. “Unfortunately, a lot of these online booking travel agencies were designed for high volume, not a high level of service.”

Fee is the CEO and founder of Cruise Planners, a home-based travel agency franchise company. A former travel agent herself, Fee has always believed in

‘The world exploded’: Beirut blast takes a husband, father

Updated

BEIRUT (AP) — Soha Saade had not seen her husband since Christmas. The coronavirus pandemic had kept 44-year-old Jihad in Nigeria, where he worked far from his family in Beirut. Once travel restrictions eased, he flew home with a new sense of urgency: His 6-year old had been diagnosed with Hodgkin lymphoma.

Together, Jihad and Soha spent 13 days with their daughter, Gemma, as she received treatment. “We only had one more day left in the hospital,” Soha said.


When smoke billowed outside the hospital window Tuesday, the couple lamented Beirut’s pollution and disorder. Soha began to film it on her phone, then went out to check with nurses if there was reason to worry.

As she opened the door, “the world exploded.”

In an instant, she had to make a wrenching decision — focus on her

How Dallas-Fort Worth Airport Became the Busiest in the World

While the air travel industry is facing numerous declines during the pandemic, one unexpected upturn has surfaced: a new busiest airport in the world. For the first time in recent memory, Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport is now operating more flights than any other on the planet.

In fact, for three months in a row the Texas hub has had the most takeoffs and landings around the globe. Starting in May, the airport climbed to the top ranking, with 22,831 airline takeoffs and landings, according to data from the Federal Aviation Administration. That was enough to edge out some typically busier hubs in the U.S.—including Atlanta, Denver, Charlotte, and Chicago O’Hare—for the number one spot. DFW topped those same airports in June with 25,294 takeoffs and landings, according to the FAA’s data.

“I’ve connected through DFW a few times during the COVID outbreak,” says Ryan Ewing, founder and president of Airline

A Canadian man who set out on a solo sail 267 days ago returned to land earlier this month to a much different world than he left.

Bert terHart, a public speaker and IT entrepreneur, set sail from Victoria, British Columbia, in October, making a months-long trip around the world via the five Capes —  South Cape in New Zealand, South East and Cape Leeuwin in Australia, Cape Agulhas in South Africa, and Cape Horn in Chile — with no aid from electronic navigational devices.

He arrived home on July 18, in a world hit by the novel coronavirus pandemic. He had seen COVID-19 restrictions first-hand during a stop in Rarotonga, the largest of the Cook Islands, in May, but didn’t fully know what

The Father-Son Duo Behind ‘Rogue Trip’ Talk Travel In A Changing World

Conversations around travel are shifting rapidly. As social justice movements push our society to evolve, the colonial and exploitive aspects of the travel experience are being highlighted and called out. Meanwhile, COVID-19 has underscored both the interconnectivity of humans and the fragility of many of our systems. Plus it’s grounded us for the foreseeable future — make wanderlust-inspiring TV, when done well, all the more vital.

This is the context for last week’s release of Rogue Trip on Disney+. The show stars longtime war reporter Bob Woodruff, who was injured in Iraq in 2006, and his son Mack, a talented young photographer. The premise is simple and representative of the conversations happening around travel right now — Bob wanted to show Mack the world he’d reported on and wash away any longheld stigmas about those nations; Mack wanted to have the sort of adventure he’d grown up hearing about from

ABC’s Bob Woodruff & son travel world in ‘Rogue Trip’

Each of the six episodes in National Geographic’s “Rogue Trip” begins with dramatic archival footage of ABC news correspondent Bob Woodruff surviving a roadside bomb in 2006 Iraq, having his skull opened and now, years later and recovered, on the road with his son Mack.

“The idea was I wanted to show my son these places he’d seen on television and give him a more positive view of the world,” Woodruff, 58, explained.

“Rogue Trip” visits countries whose reputations make them unlikely tourist hot spots:  Ethiopia, Lebanon, Pakistan, Papua New Guinea, Colombia and Ukraine.

For many, this is the first time they’ve seen the former ABC News anchor since he was nearly killed.

“The way I explain it is,” Woodruff said, “in the beginning you’re extremely happy when you wake up. You’re alive and have a loving

Does the World Even Want Supersonic Travel?

Boom Supersonic, the Concorde’s successor to commercial supersonic flight, will soon take to the skies. Is that even a good idea?

  • Supersonic consumer flight could be back on the menu, with test flights in 2021.
  • The technically brilliant Concorde went out of business in 2003, with low demand and sky-high costs.
  • Startup Boom claims to be carbon neutral.

An American startup is set to begin testing a “new Concorde” supersonic jet next year. But what’s really changed since the Concorde discontinued service in 2003? And who, exactly, is clamoring for a new version?

Denver-based Boom Supersonic says it will unveil XB-1, a 1:3 scale model of its planned supersonic jet, Overture, in October, with test flights to follow in 2021. Boom’s messaging of “bringing more people, places, and cultures” into physical reach with supersonic travel is a curious one in this particular moment in
