Love beer? Now you can stay in a “historic” beer barrel, which to us almost resembles a giant tree trunk.
The listing on Airbnb describes the room as follows:
The barrel is from the 19th Century and was in use until 1995. In the beer barrel can be found both a double bed and single bed.
The room has two more beds, so we can host up to four people in this room.

It’s absolutely stunning, and worthy of your loveliest daydreams as you return to work this week.

From how to get that special seat (hint: it’s all in the URL), to ways to block the person in front of you from reclining their seat, to how to break into an airplane lavatory (?!), Lifehacker has published How to Lie, Cheat, and Steal Your Way to a Perfect Flight. From their tip on making sure your bag gets an overhead baggage space:
Planes generally board by zone numbers or alphabetical boarding groups. This number or letter will be printed on your boarding pass. Who prints your boarding pass if you check-in at home? You do. Who has a copy of Photoshop and knows how to use it? You do. Make sure you know which group boards first, change your boarding pass so it has that number or letter on it, and you’re good to go.
Should you practice these tips? You be the judge. Read the entire article at Lifehacker »
Edinburgh is such a beautiful city that staying in an equally beautiful hotel makes perfect sense. The Hotel Missoni (yes, as in the designer Missoni) is such a place, the sort of hotel that’s been designed in a bold, contemporary style. See some of their rooms for yourself:
