 Jeju Island is a small island with a warmer climate than the mainland, and beautiful scenery. White sandy beaches washed by turquoise sea surround the coastline. Waterfalls splash into rivers and even into the sea at one point, while the central area has mountains with Mt Halla the centrepiece.

Posted by on May 16, 2013 in Weird | 25 comments

Jacob’s Well is a significant karstic spring, the largest perennial spring in the Texas Hill Country. It flows from the most extensive underwater cave in Texas, opening in the bed of Cypress Creek, a few miles north of Wimberley, Texas.The twelve foot (four meter) diameter mouth of the cave serves as a popular swimming and water recreation spot for the local land owners whose properties adjoin Cypress Creek. From the opening in the creek bed, Jacob’s Well descends vertically for about thirty feet (ten meters), continuing from there at an angle as a series of chambers separated by narrow, often deeply silted and unstable necks, ultimately reaching a depth of at least one hundred and twenty feet (forty meters).

Papakolea, Green Sand Beach

Posted by on May 6, 2013 in Weird | Comments Off on Papakolea, Green Sand Beach

If you’re visiting the Big Island of Hawaii and looking for a unique experience, you may want to go to Papakolea, the green sand beach. The beach area itself is not very large, less than 200 yards wide. The green color comes from olivine crystals and even though there is some black sand mixed in, it primarily appears green in color. It is greatly appreciated if you resist the temptation to take a souvenir of green sand with you and instead just took a lot of pictures to spark your memories and to share the experience with others.
