  • Heddal stave church is a stave church located at Heddal in Notodden municipality, Norway. ⁣
. ⁣
The church is a triple nave stave church and is Norway's largest stave church. It was constructed at the beginning of the 13th century. After the reformation, the church was in a very poor condition, and a restoration took place during 1849–1851. ⁣
.⁣
However, because the restorers lacked the necessary knowledge and skills, yet another restoration was necessary in the 1950s. The interior is marked by the period after the Lutheran Reformation in 1536–1537 and is for a great part a result of the restoration that took place in the 1950s.⁣

  • #ANCIENT “#EQUINOX” #ALIGNMENTS

Today—the Equinox—was the Holiest Day in Antiquity. It was celebrated worldwide among distant cultures. Their monuments are aligned to the sun on this day. But not merely for “symbolic” purposes. The ancients believed the sun “activated” these monuments, thinning the veil between the living and the dead, allowing access to the Otherworld. Ancient myths, symbols, architecture, and religions all hint at mankind´s spiritual powers on the Equinox. It´s the day of the Middle Door of the Triptych (see Angkor Wat pic), the day of perfect equilibrium between Light/Dark, Good/Evil, Yin/Yang, and so on. To many, this may sound absurd. To me it shows how far we moderns have fallen…

As you might expect, water cycle facts reveal that the water cycle is something that is in perpetual motion and, as such, the water cycle steps mean that water is constantly being recycled. 
Next time you pour yourself a glass or stand under the shower, bear in mind the water you drink or clean yourself with might well be the same water than dinosaurs drank millions of years ago. That’s quite an astonishing thought!

  • This is truly a journey to the past. The plant life belongs back to the ages of the dinosaurs, the aboriginal art adorning the walls for more than three thousand years, the passages and rooms carved into the face of the Australian outback by nature’s hand.

Carnarvon Gorge is a hidden gem 600km from Brisbane, unspoilt and tucked to the side of the beaten path waiting to be discovered by those willing to take the backroads of Queensland.

  • Шо, не ждали?!
А я верила! Возобновляю свое прерваное повествование на самом интересном!
Итак, перед вами самая милая и трогательная достопримечательность Лиссабона - его трамвайчик! Эти трудяги работают на благо города с 1873 года. Правда тогда, скорее, трудились их дедушки, которым компанию составляли лошадки. А вот в 1901 заря электричества воссияла над деревянными малышами. И целых сорок лет они были единственным общественным транспортом Лиссабона!
К счастью их не додумались (просто не успели), заменить на новомодные низкие "гусеницы", бороздящие и так уродливо диссонирующие с исторической архитектурой всея Европы. Ну знаете, эти дорогущие, плексигласовые новые трамваи с низкой посадкой. Теперь же эти старички объявлены мировым наследием и, будем надеятся, это на время защитит их от поползновения чинуш.
. 
ПС У меня ко всем прелестям с дисками еще и фотошоп отказал... Пришлось выкручиваться предустановленной прожкой от Асуса... Такое... .
