PHOTO: Journalist confirms Shrek’s swamp will be available to book on Airbnb in October

Information reaching Kossyderrickent has it that Shrek’s swamp will be available to book on Airbnb in October.

AirBnb have dropped the news that they will be opening up a Shrek swamp in Scotland for Halloween, and it’ll be completely free to stay; allowing you to light the earwax candles and eat gumdrop buttons to your heart’s content. For your stay, there’s even a promise of waffles made by an overly talkable, yet loveable, donkey.

As long as you’re prepared for the possibility of a dragon sighting, and are able to pay your travel to the Scottish Highlands, you’ll be all set for a free mud-bathing and Lord Farquard-slaying holiday. Just don’t take offence at the beware of the ogre sign: it’s not directed at you, just the one of the old landlords.

“Brilliant.” —The Washington Post Book World * “Magnificent.” —The Palm Beach Post * “Rich in history yet urgently relevant to current events.” —The New Republic. 

Anyone hoping to take advantage of a Halloween stay at casa de Shrek should be glued to their keyboards at 6pm on October 13 – that’s when Airbnb opens the floodgates for Skrek-lovers to book their two-night stay for Halloween. The swamp is available for booking for the dates of October 27-29, with the swamp big enough for three guests.

Airbnb’s model of the Shrek swamp is looking primed and ready for guests willing to fight off a cat voiced by Antonio Banderas, and you’ll be able to find it on the Ardverikie Estate in the Highlands. If you miss out on the booking I’m afraid it’ll all be ogre for now.

The Everglades in southern Florida were once reviled as a liquid wasteland, and Americans dreamed of draining it. Now it is revered as a national treasure, and Americans have launched the largest environmental project in history to try to save it.

The Swamp is the stunning story of the destruction and possible resurrection of the Everglades, the saga of man's abuse of nature in southern Florida and his unprecedented efforts to make amends. Michael Grunwald, a prize-winning national reporter for The Washington Post, takes readers on a riveting journey from the Ice Ages to the present, illuminating the natural, social and political history of one of America's most beguiling but least understood patches of land.

The Everglades was America's last frontier, a wild country long after the West was won. Grunwald chronicles how a series of visionaries tried to drain and “reclaim” it, and how Mother Nature refused to bend to their will; in the most harrowing tale, a 1928 hurricane drowned 2,500 people in the Everglades. But the Army Corps of Engineers finally tamed the beast with levees and canals, converting half the Everglades into sprawling suburbs and sugar plantations. And though the southern Everglades was preserved as a national park, it soon deteriorated into an ecological mess. The River of Grass stopped flowing, and 90 percent of its wading birds vanished.

Now America wants its swamp back. Grunwald shows how a new breed of visionaries transformed Everglades politics, producing the $8 billion rescue plan. That plan is already the blueprint for a new worldwide era of ecosystem restoration. And this book is a cautionary tale for that era. Through gripping narrative and dogged reporting, Grunwald shows how the Everglades is still threatened by the same hubris, greed and well-intentioned folly that led to its decline.
