Here are the best travel articles of the week (er…the last two weeks, that is). We missed our weekly roundup last week. Too. Much. Work. So this week’s list of the best travel articles of the week is brimming with great content including stories from last week we loved and stories from this week. ENJOY!

An Army of ‘Large, Fat Ants’ Infested This Plane — and a Passenger Live-Tweeted the Whole Ordeal

“Forget snakes on a plane. Ants on a plane somehow seem even worse. On a United Airlines flight from Venice, Italy to Newark, New Jersey, Charlotte Burns, senior editor of the “In Other Words” podcast, found herself facing a swarm of “large, fat ants,” USA Today reported. Burns tweeted about her experience, almost moment-by-moment.

Bass fishing with a fly rod? Try it – they’re not just for trout anymore

“‘I started fly fishing for bass about six years ago when I saw a couple of buddies doing it,’ Deshauteurs says. Many – perhaps most – anglers associate the fly rod solely with trout fishing. And with good reason. Fly rodding for trout is steeped in fishing history, soaked in angling literature and occasionally – and somewhat unfairly – carries a bit of a snobbish air.  ‘Yeah, I’d guess a lot of people would mainly associate fly fishing with trout,’ Deshauteurs adds. ‘But it’s largemouth bass in my part of the country. And it is great fun.'”
