There is so much to see and do in the world, and there are many different sources for information to find out the best of the best out there. Today, we would like to provide you with a great resource you can use to find the best, sometimes the weirdest, wherever you go in the world. The resource is the Atlas Obscura website and, if you've never explored their site it's time to start. Atlas Obscura was founded in 2009 by an author - Joshua Foer - and a documentarian - Dylan Thuras. The current CEO is David Plotz, who orchestrates the over one million user-created and professionally-produced articles related to memorable destinations both on and off the travel radar.
If you like the idea of exploring the world using Atlas Obscura as your guide but don't want to deal with planning a trip yourself, you can join an Atlas Obscura-led journey to sites around the world as varied as Berlin, Germany, Mongolia and Bhutan.
