This week brought us the best and the worst of travel, including a depressing Disneyland-themed park and a newly discovered bit of “Friends” frivolity.

It’s a week wherein we learned that bumping around a golf course in a golf cart is now suddenly outdated.

Sure, you can still load the clubs into a cart and play 18, but it’s sadly not nearly as fun as another budding form of transportation available in Hawaii.

This is also the week that we learned that you don’t exactly have to drink your booze, because some mad scientists in London are getting patrons warm and toasty with an alcohol cloud.

And that’s just a sampling from an otherwise joyous week in travel news.

Friends Discovery:

This week we learned that one “Friends” episode featured a very different set of misadventures for a couple of beloved characters.

The above scene featuring Chandler and Monica was axed on its original premiere over obvious concerns. However, thanks to some Internet sleuthing, it has seen the light of day.

Renowned artist Banksy brought a stunning collection of artists to create something so awful that it’s really quite amazing.

It’s called Dismaland, and it’s for the jaded theme park enthusiast in all of us.

Goonies Say Die:

An Astoria homeowner has had just about enough.

According to the reports, rampant tourism surrounding a home used in the movie “Goonies” caused one person to drape their home in tarp, effectively closing down an unofficial tourist attraction.

You now have to truffle shuffle elsewhere.

GolfBoard Glee:

We agree that golfing in Hawaii is truly something special. The weather is amazing and the view is outrageously beautiful.

There is hardly anything in the world that might make an experience such as this better, save a couple of GolfBoards.

Breathe In A Good Time:

Lastly, at one London bar, second hand smoke means getting nice and inebriated.

Alcoholic Architecture aims to take all the drinking out of getting drunk, which means walking around a humid bar as you huff in some sips of gin and tonic.
