Setenil de las Bodegas in Spain, where around 3,000 inhabitants are living quite literally, under a rock. The natural caves of Setenil turned out to be ideal living quarters because rather than needing to build entire houses to keep out the heat in the summer and the cold in the winter, all they needed to build was a facade. It is believed people have been living here since pre-historic times.

I would do almost anything to climb this tree.
there is a god
I would LOVE to climb this
I’m just hoping that if i reblog this enough, I’ll eventually get to climb it
Why the fuck would you do that? This tree is probably 100 years old, easily. As someone who’s grown up around Live Oaks (google it), I gotta say, that’s a really shitty thing to do.
EDIT: In fact, it appears this IS specifically a live oak. In which case, it’s probably PROTECTED BY LAW.
They get fragile at that age and spread. You see how this one has its branches reinforced to keep them from breaking under their own weight?
Don’t fucking climb these trees. If you do, you’re a bad person. Also, depending on the area they’re quite possibly PROTECTED BY LAW.
Admire. But no touchy.
I would like to climb the platonic ideal of this tree. The one that can take my weight, that I can sit in and climb up and see everything and not be afraid of falling. The nostalgia tree. I want to climb memory and dangle my legs from its branches.

The incredible top of Mount Roraima, the 1.8 million year old sandstone plateau. It is also called Roraima Tepui or Cerro Roraima. The geological marvel is one of the oldest formations on Earth, a natural border between Venezuela, Brazil and Guyana in South America. The mountain is part of Venezuela’s Canaima National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Angel Falls is also part of this beautiful park. Roraima’s highest point is Maverick Rock at 2,810 meters (9,219 feet). For nature and landscape lovers, Mount Roraima is said to have some of the most fascinating hiking trails in the world.
Why are there no dinosaurs on this plateau? Have they read no fiction at all?
Dang nature, you beautiful.
London’s Camden Catacombs
Deep beneath the streets of Camden lies a secret unknown to the hoards of visitors and market traders up above – a long forgotten labyrinth of tunnels and vaults that bear witness to the area’s colorful Victorian industrial past.
I have been here, back in the Neverwhere researching days, over 15 years ago. In one tunnel there were beds, from World War 2, with boxes of secret papers on them.
