10.Kaali | Estonia
9.Catatumbo | Venezuela
8.Nazare | Portugal
Nazare is a beautiful and famous coastal town of Portugal that attracts people from all over the world.
Primarily, big wave surfers. And I mean BIG wave, even though nothing is confirmed yet, the top 3 records for biggest waves ridden have occurred here.
The giant waves are caused by the underwater Nazare Canyon, why you might ask ? I’m not really sure, but I can tell you this, the confirmed record breaking wave that was surfed in 2011 was 78 feet (24m) from trough to crest.
7.St. Ignace Mystery Spot | Michigan
Hey, here is a tourist trap in Michigan that is as tacky as it is strange, the story goes something like this. A few surveyors were checking out the area some time in 1950, everything was going well until they found themselves in a mysterious spot that affected all their equipment. They felt uneasy, and lighter than usual.
Then I assume they ran home and told everyone that a forest witch attacked them. Nowadays, the mystery spot is advertised a bit too heavily for my tastes. Everyone enjoys a bit of campy fun sometimes, so if I was in the area I would definitely visit, just to say that I did. As they say, come for the mystery spot, stay for the 400 years of forgotten history.
6. New Mt. Carmel Center | Texas
5.Ropoto | Greece
When it rains, it pours, this is especially true in the ghost town of Ropoto, Greece. Before 2012, around 300 people called this place home, but after the April 12, 2012 landslide, they all had to evacuate.
The village and all its history will be completely lost sooner rather than later, there is no signs of recovery, and the landslides will not stop. Perhaps the eeriest of all, is the old church that is slowly but surely sliding down the hill. Eventually the building will lose its structural integrity and collapse.
The local government hasn’t done much to help the people that used to live here, the whole town is “off limits” but at the same time, some folks are still required to pay property taxes on these crumbling homes. That has to suck !
4.Pelangi | Indonesia
Kampung Pelangi, kampung meaning village, is… amazing. And uplifting, and wholesome, and very very colorful !
What used to be a dilapidated, depressing small village was transformed into something beautiful for the small sum of $22,000.
Whats even more incredible is that Pelangi is not the first, or the only village in Indonesia to transform itself into something more than a slum. The Judipan Colorful Village is the original one.
3. Bellefonte Station | Alabama
2.Mount Roraima | Venezuela , Guyana , Brazil
Here is a place that is not only stunning, but geographically interesting as well. Mount Roraima serves at the triple border point between Brazil, Guyana and Venezuela. Other people might recognize from the world renowned, true story, hard hitting drama … UP.
There is no easy way to get to the top, most of the mountain is surrounded by steep cliffsides, that make for a very interesting experience. Ooops, actually I guess there is a relatively easy way to climb up top, from the Venezuelan side, but trust me, it still sucks.
When it is cloudy, Mount Roraima can be compared to a island in the sky, and that’s exactly what 90% of clickbait videos on youtube do.
1.Skeleton Coast | Namibia
I know this video has been a bit out there with the content, we have explored some very different places, but this one, this one is very unique. The Northern Namibian coast is known under many different names,
Portuguese explorers called it “The Gates of Hell.
Local tribes named it “The Land God Made in Anger”
The one that stuck out the most was “ The Skeleton Coast”, coined by the writer John Henry Marsh, from a book he wrote by the same name…
From derelict buildings, hundreds of shipwrecks and thousands of whale and seal bones, the skeleton coast lives up to its name. The farther mainland you go, the more you realize that you are surrounded by nothing but desert. Nowadays, most of the coastline is protected land known as the Skeleton Coast National Park. Most of it is only accessible by plane, and only the southern part is open to 4 wheel drive vehicles.
In other words, if you find yourself here alone… good luck.
