Flak towers in Vienna
Perfect for Bruce.

Safe from bombing raids and the natives have a superstitious fear of the place.

So plenty of solitude, yet you're right there in the big city if you need to buy some beer or something.
And they do have some good beer there.

Wow. It hasn't even been 100 years since those towers were built, and the world we live in now is so different. It would be really hard to explain to my kids what an air raid is, let alone what its like to live in a time when people built huge towers like this and ran to get inside them at the sound of a siren.
Such potential!

Questions, questions…
Spoiler:
The cistern […], built in North London in 1868 to store drinking water, has a dozen arched corridors identical to the one pictured. Each such passage measures about 120 meters long, or 394 feet. It, too, has marvelous acoustics.

Bruce's morning commute near Svalbard:



Even Imgur lets me down. :x But I found the scene on YT, with some more details, and information:
April 2, 2018 / Hailuoto, Finland "Pilot is boarding to ship, near the coast of Hailuoto, Finland. The ship is going to port of Oulu. Under us was 20” of ice."

Witness, where do you find this amazing stuff? Do you search for it, or do you have some sort of subscription to weird places magazine?

Once again, I want to know more. What the hell is that and where is it? Feed me some knowledge. :Hungry2:

↑ Don't be so shy. :wink:

It's somewhere under a village in Northern France – WWI remains. The discoverers keep mum in most cases, because this is what happens when a location gets leaked:

(Yes, it''s the same place. :( Why are there so many assholes? Darwin asleep again?)

Have a nice stay, wherever you go.
