  • All Airbnb Plus homes meet the same high standards of quality. But each one also has a style of its own. In this all-white neoclassical flat in Eixample, wearing black isn’t just a way to look chic. It also helps you avoid losing each other in all the pale opulence. If you feel like expanding your palette, the shopping mecca Passeig de Gràcia is a short walk away.

  • Ink runs through Kasho’s veins. Born into a family of calligraphers, she’s practiced the art form for 50 years. Join her in her family’s machiya (traditional wooden townhouse) for a meditative, hands-on session that’ll yield several finished pieces to take home—and more proficiency than you might have expected.

  • Live like 18th century nobility but with better wifi. If you ever get tired of striking baroque poses in your palazzo, Purità Beach is just a few blocks away.

  • An oasis of calm in the heart of the city, Lan Su Chinese Garden is the perfect setting for some gently rigorous yoga with accomplished teachers Lucy and Jas. Afterward, they’ll lead you on a walking meditation around the garden and into the teahouse for a traditional tea ritual with a local expert.
As a Social Impact experience, 100% of what you pay goes to Lan Su Chinese Garden.

It was a Saturday night, and such a Sabbath as followed! Ex officio professors of Sabbath breaking are all whalemen. The ivory Pequod was turned into what seemed a shamble; every sailor a butcher. You would have thought we were offering up ten thousand red oxen.

I have given no small attention to that not unvexed subject, the skin of the whale. I have had controversies about it with experienced whalemen afloat, and learned naturalists ashore. My original opinion remains unchanged; but it is only an opinion.

For the strain constantly kept up by the windlass continually keeps the whale rolling over and over in the water, and as the blubber in one strip uniformly peels off along the line called the “scarf,” simultaneously cut by the spades of Starbuck and Stubb, the mates; and just as fast as it is thus peeled off, and indeed by that very act itself.

The men at the windlass then cease heaving, and for a moment or two the prodigious blood-dripping mass sways to and fro as if let down from the sky, and every one present must take good heed to dodge it when it swings, else it may box his ears and pitch him again.
