Island of Miyajima, an island in Japan which is basically a tourist hotspot for the Japanese.

"The island was full of sacred deer. They were not afraid, for no one hurt them." [Japanese sacred deer at Miyajima.

Seljavallalaug pool, 1923, South Iceland. Foot of Eyjafjoll Mountains. One of the pool's long sides is the sheer mountainside, where natural hot water trickles into it.

Lysevegen Road. Forsand, Norway The road is not small business. It has 32 sharp curves, a drop of 800 height metres on the last 8 kilometres (0.5 miles). The last 1.1 kilometer (0.7 miles) is driving through a steep 340 degree curved tunnel also with three switchbacks inside, called Lysetunnelen. This is the view 900 meters down, once you get on top. The highest point on the road is by Andersvatn lake, 950 metres above sea level. It is a long road, twisting and turning the whole way down.
