Some of these are lame (like the Moscow one - it shows nothing), but a lot of them are super cool. (via Amazing Birds Eye View Of 30 Different Cities Around The World)

My first piece for enRoute, on sledding in Switzerland.

Off the train at Preda to sled the 5 km back to Bergün. We did a total of about 25 km today - this run three times and another off the chairlift twice. #switzerland #winter #sledding #travel

View of the old city of Bern from inside the clock tower. At Christmastime and from summer through fall, there are daily tours at 2:30, so you can see the super-cool clock mechanism. #switzerland #travel

Just visited Jungfraujoch, Europe’s highest railway station at just over 3500 m. The grade of the train track goes up to 25% and the cars have special cogs to link into. As each train brakes on the way down, it generates 1/3 of the electricity needed to go back up. #switzerland #trains #travel

Learning to ski is the hardest thing I’ve done in my life. It’s not my natural inclination to persist with something I’m not good at. Sometimes I consider just giving up, and then I end up at a glacier 3000 m up in the Swiss Alps on a warm, sunny day and it all seems worthwhile. #switzerland #ski #travel (at Glacier 3000)

Swiss cows do it better. #switzerland #ski #travel (at Les Diablerets)

Sick of winter running already? Why not plan a trip to Kenya in March for the Rift Valley Marathon?

Why Diets Don’t Work is a criticism of conflicting dieting messages, but it’s also a story of health. Kat Tancock teaches readers why it's okay to let go of "fat guilt" and a deprivation mindset, and she shows them how to focus instead on choosing and controlling their environments and being aware of external and internal eating cues.
