Welcome to today's Weekly Travelfeed roundup brought to you by @for91days.

A little delayed but better than never, our weekly round-up featuring our favorite submitted travel articles using our tag #travelfeed. Before we dive into them though, we would like for you to check out a preview of our TravelFeed.io beta release. But now, let's start with the first featured article, taking us to a Sento - Japanese Bathhouse and introducing us to all the rules you should follow. Next up is story we loved about hitchhiking in China and meeting some awesome people. And the last post is taking us to Varkala, Kerela in India, telling us how we can maximize our time there.

Please note - we are still in search for one more curator to cover a day or two a week. If you are interested, please contact us on discord (kindly find a link at the bottom of the page). Now let’s get reading!

The 1st Place

Sento - Japanese bathhouse. How to use it?
written by @kocinka

Japan is famous for its volcanic landscape and one of its elements are hot springs, or onsen. Japanese people really like to take health, hot baths in them. But onsen are usually expensive, exclusive and for special occasions like holidays. That's why, in Japan, public baths - sento are still very popular. They are much cheaper than onsen and you can find them in every city.

The 2nd Place

written by @timezonejunkies

In order to get to a good hitchhiking spot to start the day off we had to walk four km out of town to the main road, this in itself was a challenge! After an hour of walking we finally made it to the main road, found a good spot, and stuck our hands out (using the thumb doesn't work so well in Asia).

The 3rd Place

#103: Make The Most Of Your Trip To Varkala, Kerela
written by @hungry-nomad

The beaches in Varkala are amongst the cleanest beaches in India. The water at Papanasam Beach is considered to have holy, sin-cleansing properties as believed by many who visit it yearly to wash away their sins! The town also has some of the most ancient temples in India. But the major attraction are the beaches and the Ayurvedic spas. I had recently visited Varkala and it turned out to be one of the most relaxing trips I've had in a long time.
