Do you know anything else about the house in the foreground? Presumably it’s a lodge for a shepherd or something – the island seems like it’s mainly used for grazing. There’s another little hut in the hillside, reminiscent of the wooden shacks on the

Can someone give me the name for that sort of geological formation? Is that a former plateau that was eroded away, for instance? It’s stunning, and I’ve been damn curious about how this sort of landscape came about, and it’s damn hard to wikipedia
I’m a descendant of the Duart Castle McLeans! Thanks for a great picture of the Isle
These buildings look like [badass tattoo-covered old people](http://www.smosh.com/smosh-pit/photos/23-seniors-prove-tattoos-can-still-look-cool-old-people).
Anytime I see someone posting stuff about a Scandinavian location or anything with a proper Scandinavian noun, I imagine that it was typed by rolling fist over the keyboard. For example: “I took this on my way to Joweiaufq. Passed by Gujweiomn, Buiweny, and
fun fact: hallstatt was a salt mining town for many centuries. they used bronze tools well beyond the bronze age since bronze is resistant to salt corrosion. make way for bronze (and salt)!
I hear ya. I dreamt of moving to the PNW for more than a decade, but my brother was ill, and my husband at the time was just not convinced enough that we could make it up there with no support network. Well, I
If I read the film correctly, by the end the perception of the city by Colin Farrell’s character seemed to be pretty positive in a way. So maybe that redeemed it for all the jokes they made throughout the beginning and middle. Ken certainly
Shirakawa Village. Mura means village. The mura on the end makes the use of village redundant. There, I’ve had my pedantic moment for today.
It doesn’t look as impressive in the photo, but if you at the city just to the east Mopti, those islands are mostly just enormous piles of trash they’re building on top of. I’m not sure if it’s because it’s the high water season
I wonder when hot air balloons were first used in this locality. I think that the Chinese may have invented hot air balloons before the Europeans.
The place is beautiful, but calling it a medieval town is a bit of a stretch. Many (if not most) of the buildings were built centuries after the medieval period. From the [photographer’s website](http://geoffboeing.com/2015/07/beautiful-cities-of-eastern-europe/): > The old town, seen here from the castle’s gardens,
This is the Bay of Kotor. To the left you can see the tiny artificial island which is the Gospa od Skrpjela church. The town in the center is Perast, Orahovica on the right, Risan on the left, and I believe Dobrota on the
Naturally I had to stalk your profile for other potentially fantastic pictures. Was not disappointed. You Sir, are quite talented. Do you do this for a living, or is it just a hobby?
Nice! I was actually there last year in the summer (from South Africa, studied in Netherlands) during a summer school in Ljubljana. We spent a few hours there swimming and soaking up the sun and I spent some quality time with a very pretty
When I went there, we stopped and turned around at the bridge. I wish we’d had more time to get to the vantage point from which this picture was taken. Oh well. And yeah… the castle looks 10x more impressive from the outside than
That is obviously a very dusty wood-grain tabletop with pieces of broccoli on it. You can’t fool me.
So what, you presumptiously accuse me of downvoting you, and then accuse me of lying about the fact, all over the fact that I didn’t link to a source (which isn’t exactly a ubiquitous rule among image subreddits)? I think that’s more than enough
Hey, my sister met my brother in law there! [He](http://payload52.cargocollective.com/1/7/237569/3340088/42260019.JPG) was a [shop owner](http://payload52.cargocollective.com/1/7/237569/3340088/IMG_0080.JPG) in the town, and she kept getting lost and winding up back at his shop. The blue tradition started some decades ago, at the urging of some of the town’s
I voted yes, with great hope that would be the outcome. Oban in general *seems* to be very pro-yes. But now the depression is setting in as it’s looking very likely that Scotland will not become independent. I did accept long ago that this
Inis Meáin is a remote island of the west coast of Ireland. This photo was taken in the 60s and shows a women and her granddaughter taking pails of water to the schoolhouse. She is wearing a knitted shawl, which was typical [Gaelic dress](http://antoilean.blogspot.com.es/2012/12/old-colour-photos-of-ireland-in-1913.html)
The property is owned by some distant family. They restored the buildings that were on the property and then applied for it to be a heritage site. It was approved and now random people can go stay there to have a “traditional” experience. So
They’re even more beautiful inside. The one I went to had old lady nuns who took care of cats and grew beautiful roses. Definitely a place to add to a bucket list.
