    Interesting & Useful Website: Atlasobscura.com

    Anybody else use www.atlasobscura.com to find some great unusual places while traveling? I've been having fun reading about some of the things they've located.

    Thank you for that - just had a very enjoyable half hour flicking about and will certainly return ! I also follow National Geographic on Instagram - the natgeo, the natgeotravel and the natgeophotograpy sites, which also throw up unexpected gems.

    Isn't it a wonderful resource? I've found it particularly great for return visits to places when I want to dive deeper; or to learn of fascinating alternatives to better known sites that might be more enjoyable for being less crowded. The map function is useful in planning a day's itinerary. And since it's crowd-sourced, you can suggest additions!

    Happened on to it...

    I just happened upon the site last week! I will definitely be using it for Italy, but also for our Far East trip this coming fall. Lots of treasures to be vetted from it. Wendy
