The June issue of mental_floss magazine (on sale now!) is all about going places. We explored what we think are some of the coolest locations on earth—from floating villages and Day-Glo hot springs to skyscraper cemeteries and an entire museum devoted to elevators. You don’t have to be a world traveler to appreciate the fantastic places that dot our globe (especially when you sign up for an absolutely free issue of the magazine right here).

Also inside: we take a closer look at the good old days when weather reports were delivered by talking sheep, settle what’s arguably the most pressing question of our time—how much wood can a woodchuck chuck?—and get a taste of the fascinating history of caviar.
