The world of travel moves fast! Let’s keep up–together. On Fridays, Traveling IQ curates the highlights from the past week:
*Baby, it’s cold outside, but it ain’t nothing compared to the coldest city on earth–Yakutsk in Eastern Siberia–where temperatures plummet to minus 45C/49F (via The Independent). In an alternate hemisphere, Sydney, Australia, records its hottest day ever at 45C/114F (via Sydney Morning Herald).
*While in Mexico, don’t drink the water; while in Beijing, don’t breathe the air (via NY Times).
*Looking for love in all the wrong places? Book a trip to one of America’s Cruisiest Gay Cities (via About.com).
