Celebrity Travel Roundup

Cover stars make travel news

by Beata L. Santora

With so much celeb news out there this week, choosing just one tidbit to share with you would be like Sophie's Choice. So we decided to avoid the moral dilemma and bring you the top celebrity travel news in our first Celebrity Travel Roundup:

* Nothing quells rumors of a break up and philandering like a coupley trip up north. That's just what Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel did this week in Vancouver, Canada. These savvy celebs must have read the results of our 2009 Readers' Choice Awards and saw that Vancouver is the top-rated city in the Americas. Not to mention, the city is abuzz in expectation of the 2010 Winter Olympics. We certainly hope that Vancouver can help turn their sourpusses into smiles. 

* Continuing in their quest to become the world's most nauseatingly do-gooding couple, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie visited the SOS Children's Village in Jordan to support the organization's care of orphans. Hopefully while there, the Jolie-Pitts had a chance to learn about Jordan's other progressive policies on water and the environment.

* Amateur architect Brad Pitt has recently revealed a prototype for a floating house. Built with eco-friendly ingredients, the house is able to withstand up to 12 feet of rising water. The project was a part of Pitt's efforts for the Make it Right foundation in New Orleans to ensure that the devastation of Hurricane Katrina never happens again. What did we tell you about Pitt? Nauseatingly curing the world of its ills, in spite of the funny facial hair.
