Village in Holland with no Roads
In a village Giethoorn you can’t find a single road, and all transportation is by boats. However, nobody thinks it is a problem, because it is so beautiful!! Located in the province of Overijssel, there are 4 miles of canals and farmhouses with thatched roofs dating back to the 18th century.
Undoubtedly, beautiful town of Giethoorn is a popular tourist attraction. Meanwhile, its likeness with Italian Venice made people give it a nickname – the Venice of the Netherlands. Cycling and sailing, as well as a guided canal tour – are some of the many ways to discover its rustic charm.

Amazing and terrifying Holes in the Earth
First, in the list of notable holes is Kimberlite pipe “Mir” – quarry located in the town of Mirny, Yakutia, Russia. Noteworthy, the quarry with a depth of 525 m and a diameter of 1.2 km, and one of the world’s largest open-cast mines. In fact, Diamondiferous kimberlite ore mining ceased in June 2001. Meanwhile, currently on board of the quarry engineers build an underground mine of the same name. However, to work out the remaining stocks, open pit excavation is not profitable.

Den lille Idas Blomster
Beautiful jade flowers featured in this post – made in Guangong, China. Chinese call it oil jade due to its shining, glossy texture and glass-like transparency, and the leaves are from green Taiwan Jadein. Meanwhile, these jade flowers in my post perfectly decorate the fairy tale written in 1835 by famous Danish writer Hans Christian Andersen (1805–1875). In particular, Den lille Idas Blomster or Little Ida’s Flowers.
‘My poor flowers are quite dead!’ said little Ida. ‘They were so pretty yesterday evening, and now all the leaves hang withered. Why do they do that?’ she asked the student, who sat on the sofa; for she liked him very much. He knew the prettiest stories, and could cut out the most amusing pictures—hearts, with little ladies in them who danced, flowers, and great castles in which one could open the doors: he was a merry student. ‘Why do the flowers look so faded to-day?’ she asked again, and showed him a whole bouquet, which was quite withered.
Snow is falling
“I love snow for the same reason I love Christmas: It brings people together while time stands still. Cozy couples lazily meandered the streets and children trudged sleds and chased snowballs. No one seemed to be in a rush to experience anything other than the glory of the day, with each other, whenever and however it happened.” ― Rachel Cohn, Dash & Lily’s Book of Dares.
Abnormally large animals

His records were announced as he appeared on The Oprah Winfrey Show in February 2010. The dog reached four-year growth by as much as 2 m 13 centimeters. And the weight of the giant – 111 pounds. A four-year-old dog George looks more like a horse than a dog.
Rescued by men animals
Real men know that showing kindness to the innocent doesn’t show weakness, but rather shows a more important strength. In particular, a strength of character that doesn’t weaken with age. Undoubtedly, real men are kind to animals. And these pictures show the real men in action, saving animals, some good quotes accompany the images. “Compassion for animals is intimately associated with goodness of character, and it may be confidently asserted that he who is cruel to animals cannot be a good man.” ― Arthur Schopenhauer, The Basis of Morality
