From the unreal Yoro Park in Japan to the Bergpark Wilhelmshohe in Germany, here are Unbelievable Places That Really Exist. Learn about the BIGGEST of everything Monday, Wednesday, and Friday just subscribe! # 8 Yoro Park The town of Yoro located in the Gifu prefecture of Japan is relatively small and unremarkable with a population of just 33,000. However, many people are attracted to this place because of the Yoro Park Site of Reversible Destiny. It is a strange “theme park” that doesn’t have the roller coasters or rides that most theme parks offer. Instead, it boasts surreal landscaping, perfectly round domes covered in grass, and architecture that will make you scratch your head. It was originally designed to incorporate the 100 waterfalls in the area into a unified place. # 7 Beppu, Japan The Japanese island of Kyushu is home to many things, but is also known to be a very active hotbed of geothermal activity. Hot springs have bubbled up over the city of Beppu and are so hot they create huge steam clouds that rise above the rooftops, making it look like the entire city is on fire. These springs are colored a deep blue or deep orange but are too hot to bathe in, ranging in temperature from 50 to 99.5 degrees Celsius. This hot water is piped through the city to be used in homes, restaurants, and even in places where it is cooled down enough to help with physical therapy. # 6 Village of Monsanto Voted the most Portuguese village in Portugal and built to be intertwined with the landscape is the village of Monsanto. Looking at pictures might be shocking because it looks as if the village was crushed by a landslide. The village was built between, underneath, and around these boulders which have been there for as long as the village has. Monsanto was built in the 12th century and sits on top of a mountain, giving a spectacular view of the Italian countryside. # 5 Marble Caves of Chile Chico This stark rock shape is located in a peninsula bordering Lake General Carrera along the Chile-Argentina border. It’s one of the marble caves of Chile Chico, a giant outcropping of solid marble that has been slowly carved by water pushing up against it. The marble caves are very far removed from any established paved roads and require a 30 minute guided boat ride to get to. The parts that have been polished by the water reveal a beautiful pearly, swirling pattern hidden inside the rock. # 4 The Natural Bridge Most bridges are man-made marvels, but this one was made completely by Mother Nature. It was carved by Cedar Creek which flowed through it over the course of thousands of years. It’s a 65 meter high bridge that is sacred to the Monacan tribe and was later surveyed by American colonists. One of these colonists was George Washington who allegedly carved his initials into the rock. # 3 The Blue Forest The Hallerbos, or Blue Forest, is a dream-like forest in Belgium. Most times of the year it’s beautiful, but unremarkable as far as forests go. However, every spring, the forest takes on a whole new quality that makes it seem straight out of a dream. The forest floor blooms with blue bell flowers, completely saturating the place with the densest meadow of bluebells in all of Europe. # 2 Atlantic Ocean Road We’ve all heard of taking the “scenic route”, but the Atlantic Ocean Road takes that to the next level. This winding road curves over and around the brutal Norwegian Sea. The road connects several tiny islands together to unify the country, and to do this it crosses the beautiful scenery of the Norwegian coasts. Despite several arched bridges and elevated roads, the water will still occasionally crash over the road during storms. If you are lucky and brave enough to cross this road, you will be rewarded with some of the most breathtaking views in the world. # 1 Bergpark Wilhelmshöhe This image has been circulating on the internet for at least four years now and is frequently captioned as being somewhere near Poland or Germany. While this actual image is just a photo mockup, there is a similar waterfall castle that actually exists in Kassel Germany. The Bergpark Wilhelmshohe is an old water park that was first built in 1696. It’s equipped to handle 92,000 gallons that flow through the three-century-old pneumatic devices. The water most notable flows down a 350-meter long cascade/slide that makes it look like a castle sitting directly on top of a water park. You can still visit the Bergpark Wilhelmshohe despite its age as it was designated a UNESCO world heritage spot in 2013.
In the aftermath of the Dawlish sea wall being breached, succumbed by the sea, work has now been undertaking to slowly an gradually rebuild the stricken scenic railway. With work rebuilding the line to take six weeks or likely months. In the days after the disaster I was looking through my external hard drive and to my amazement I found archive HD footages that I filmed of steam and HSTs running along the sea wall the last two years, especially along the breached section of the wall. Knowing their historic importance and rarity for in the future, I decided to find and bring up unpublished and unseen shots of 70000 Britannia hauling the Torbay Express in July 2012, a year and a half before the disaster. With that I combined a 'before and after' event in this film, with included additional footages of the Dawlish sea wall after being breached, damaged and stricken. Having been going there since very early childhood, It's so little wonder why the sea wall is really my personal favorite location to film trains like many around, being one of the most unique and scenic coastal mainlines in the UK. Every good reason why I treat this line as if its my own property. © Ryan Skinner

Lovely short film about Bude in Cornwall - the town's beaches (there are two massive sandy ones) are perfect for long summer days building sandcastles or getting in some surf lessons and in winter battling against the breeze walking the dog.
