L♥ve Locks Around The World (Interactive Map)


My goal is to document as many known ‘Love Lock’ locations Around the World. Do you know of any more ‘Love Lock’ locations that are not on the map yet, please share them in the comment section so i can add them to the map! 🙂

A ‘love lock’ or ‘love padlock’ is a padlock which lovers, sweethearts or individuals lock to a bridge, fence, gate, or similar public fixture to symbolize their love. Typically their names or initials are inscribed on the padlock and the key is thrown away to symbolize unbreakable love.
Since the 2000s, love locks have proliferated at an increasing number of locations worldwide. They are now mostly treated by municipal authorities as litter or vandalism due to the damage they can cause, public safety, and the cost of removing the padlocks. However, there are authorities who embrace them and who use them as fundraising projects, art or tourism attractions.
So please remember before you hang your ‘Love Lock’ somewhere that you have permission to do so!

The Mysterious ‘Rock Face’ on Reeks Broken Island


A mysterious, “large” face on the cliffside of an island in the Pacific Rim National Park Reserve has recently been re-discovered by a man who has been searching for the face for over two years. Hidden on Reeks island on Canada’s west coast, a First Nation community is now looking in to the significance of the giant face found on the mountain, to discover whether the visage, surrounded by a rugged shoreline and rough waters, is a natural phenomenon, or the product of ancient civilisation.
The ‘Rock Face’ could be an example of pareidolia or may be a carved face on a rock from an ancient and long-forgotten society, but for those of us who love a good old fashioned mystery it’s a treat.

The Story of The Loch Ness Monster


81 years ago Colonel Robert Wilson made a grainy black and white photo of a shape that resembled a prehistoric creature that was emerging from the icy waters of Loch Ness. The photo was published in the Daily Mail and since then the sightings of Nessie, perhaps the most famous monster in the world, became almost impossible to keep up.
Up to the present day, people are still searching for “Nessie” and even Google has joined the search.

Will they find “Nessie” or is “Nessie” just another legend?

The San Andreas Fault


The presence of the San Andreas fault was brought dramatically to world attention on April 18, 1906, when sudden displacement along the fault produced the great San Francisco earthquake and fire. This earthquake, however, was but one of many that have resulted from episodic displacement along the fault throughout its life of about 15-20 million years.

The 800-mile San Andreas Fault, which runs from northern California to Mexico, has been the source of the state’s biggest earthquakes. Known as the ‘sleeping giant’, it is one of more than 350 faults that are found across the state.

Scientists now predict that the risk of a mega quake in the next 30 years is higher than was previously thought.

The Islamic Mosques are known not only for their sacred significance, but also for their breathtaking architectural designs. With geometric patterns and an astonishing use of color, these spiritual locations are among the most beautiful creations of man.

In Islamic culture, geometric design is everywhere: you can find it in mosques, madrasas, palaces, and private homes. And despite the remarkable complexity of these designs, they can be created with just a compass to draw circles and a ruler to make lines within them. Find out how ..
