U2, 'Vacation,' the Royal Baby and More Captivating Travel News this Week

We have a trailer, a monkey, a famous band and a marathon zip-line attraction to talk about.

Yes, it seems the week was like a figurative clown car with various inane stories spilling out of the Internet vehicle.

Here we have rounded up the ones we thought were the most intriguing. They include a much anticipated movie trailer for the reboot of a classic franchise.

It also includes some primate backlash that all started because of a very royal pregnancy. So hopefully we have your interest piqued enough that you dig just a bit further. And remember that we are always looking for more stories, so chime in accordingly.

Griswold Family Vacation:

Despite never having asked for one, we are all getting a “Vacation” reboot with Ed Helms in the driver’s seat. Finally, we got the trailer.

Now this is a red band trailer, which means there are naughty words, raunchy situations and Chris Hemsworth. We will let you find out about him on your own.

Bono, The Edge and the rest of U2 were at New York’s Grand Central Station busking for random passersby earlier this week.

It was all part of a “The Tonight Show” appearance that airs on Friday. We just hope they pulled in a good haul in the spare change department.

Commuting by Zipline:

Make like a secret spy and zipline through two miles of track. We do have to warn that this kind of attraction takes courage and the ability to be totally cool with nothing but hundreds of feet between you and the Slovenian ground.

“No, It Looks Great. We Barely Notice.”

A Turkish Airlines plane had the unfortunate distinction of flying into what was reportedly a bird.

We just think this is another way of saying a "winged-creature of mythical proportions" when you can’t really describe it otherwise or in a succinct manner.

But we know the truth. This was a gigantic Pegasus judging by the damage.

Charlotte the Monkey:

A Japanese Zoo recently celebrated the birth of a baby monkey. On another portion of the world, a royal family was having a now very famous royal baby.

The two reports collided when zoo officials attempted to pay homage to the royal baby by naming the monkey Charlotte.  

We don’t want to bore you with the ensuing outrage, but the zoo has since apologized. This is counter to any humans in the UK with the same name, because they get free pizza.
