What we were clicking on and talking about this week at #FathomHQ now that we’ve finished all our Holiday Shopping with our 2015 Gift Guides.

I’ve never been bumped from a flight, but when it eventually happens — 277,000 passengers were denied boarding in the first half of 2013 alone — I’m cashing in. Do you know your airline passenger rights?Daniel, editorial assistant

There’s no denying it — Cuba is this year’s most talked about travel destination. Head over to Ralph Lauren’s RL Magazine, where I’m reliving our #FathomFieldTrip to the beautiful city of Havana. – Berit, editor

I first read about 15-year-old Flynn McGarry’s Michelin-level supper club in The New York Times Magazine last year, so I’m thrilled to discover that he’s hosting weekend dinners in NYC this winter. I want to go! – Becky, assistant editor

Everyone is thinking about holiday right now. Thanks to Fathom pal Wendy Perrin for including me in her TripAdvisor article, 10 Great Travel Gifts Recommended by the Experts. – Pavia, founder

Instagram is one of my favorite trip planning resources. Find the most instagrammed location in your state with this list from Cool Material. – Berit

After reading about the range of typography on New York’s Broadway, I have one more reason (besides work, shopping, and schlepping to shows) to walk down the city’s most famous street. – Daniel

Next time I’m in London, I’m heading to the new Zetter Townhouse in Marylebone, which I read about on CoolHunting recently. It’s the just-as-quirky sister hotel to Zetter Townhouse Clerkenwell, a Fathom Favorite. – Pavia

Thanksgiving is over, which now means a full sprint towards Christmas. I’m enjoying Google’s Santa Tracker and clicking around the Christmas village to learn new languages and global trivia. – Becky
