Footbridge at Vøringsfossen

The waterfall over the river Bjoreio in Norway now has a 597-foot-tall, 99-step bridge you wan walk over it for stunning views. Another reason to get to Norway (eventually)!

Also, how do you say these words?

The step bridge at Vøringsfossen goes across the river Bjoreio, connecting the viewpoints and paths at Fossatromma and Fossli.

Stonehenge II

Okay, they built a new Stonehenge near San Antonio. It’s just like the real Stonehenge, but hotter and closer. 🤷🏻‍♂️

This is brilliant and stupid at the same time. But mostly brilliant.

I think we can all agree that some Spinal Tap is called for here.

In ancient times, hundreds of years before the dawn of history
Lived a strange race of people, the Druids
No one knows who they were or what they were doing
But their legacy remains
Hewn into the living rock, of Stonehenge

The Dark Hedges

Another cool / creepy place in Ireland with a very Harry Potter vibe. ☘️🧙‍♂️

Trinity College Library

This is one of my very favorite spots in Ireland. Serious Harry Potter vibes. 🤓

Cypress Falls Swimming Hole

Another great swimming spot near Wimberly. Perhaps an alternative to the Blue Hole if it’s full or you want to try something new.

Adding to my Texas swimming holes list.

10 Weird and Wonderful Places to Stay in Texas

Are you tired of sitting around the house during this pandemic? Do you want to get out somewhere fun and interesting but keep socially distanced?

If you’re in Texas and not ready to hop on an airplane or crowd into some cosmopolitan hotel, then this guide is for you.

👉 10 Weird & Wonderful Places to Stay in Texas

Would you like to spend your weekend in a treehouse high up in the cypress trees with a canopy tour to boot? Or perhaps in a teepee? Maybe being surrounded by gazelles, zebras, yak and emu sounds fun. Or maybe glamping in an Airstream at the beach is your cup of tea. Sleeping in a caboose is a choice. There’s also an old Spanish mission.

Okay, this all sounds like a Dr. Seuss book. I’m tempted to go back and make it rhyme. Maybe another time.

Distinctive Destinations

Here’s a great site for finding interesting historical sites in your area or when you travel.

👉 Distinctive Destinations

This is from the National Trust for Historic Preservation, so it’s authentic and not some kind of sales pitch or ad-driven site.

Here around Austin, they list the Elisabet Ney Museum and O. Henry Museum.

You can also get a nation-wide map of more places to explore. Maps + history + real-world sites? For me, that’s heaven. 🤷🏻‍♂️
