We have lift off 🚀 This is Hallgrímskirkjam, it’s often referred to as one of the strangest buildings in the world. Recently it featured on @boredpanda’s list of “The world’s strangest buildings”, the Danish publication Politiken has named it one of the world’s “most unbelievable” buildings and if that wasn’t enough to confirm it’s status, in 2014 it was voted one of the strangest buildings in the world on the website Strange Buildings. I guess the bullet point here is that some people think this building looks rather strange. Something that’s also strange though is that the large clock on the tower, the most visible timepiece in town, often gives the wrong time. The reason? Large gusts of Icelandic wind frequently knock the hands out of step @InspiredByIceland #LonelyPlanet #BestinTravel #Iceland #Reykjavik #Hallgrímskirkjam #Rocket #LiftOff #GuideToIceland #StrangeBuildings #BeautifulDestinations #NatureLovers #MoodyGrams #MoodyClouds #TheCreatorsClass #Illgrammers #Photography #ArtOfVisuals #VisualsOfLife #TravelAwesome

When Denos Vourderis proposed to his girlfriend in front of the Wonder Wheel, he promised her that if she said yes; he would buy her the Wheel. She said yes (why wouldn’t she? He was basically offering her the world’s largest wedding ring)! That was in 1948 and over the decades Vourderis worked on keeping that promise. He ran bars, hot dog stands and children’s rides, working tirelessly to save enough cash. Then one day in 1983, the Wheel’s owner decided to retire and offered the wheel to Vourderis. He immediately bought it. But the ride didn’t come with any sort of instruction manual- all that was passed on was a piece of paper, torn from a cigarette packet, with a few scribbled notes including the words “good luck”. Having spent years in awe of the wheel and its mechanics, Denos quickly sussed out how to operate it and looked after the Wheel right up until he passed in 1994. The moral of the story is don’t be crazy and offer your girlfriend a great big wheel- you’ll spend your life regretting making such a ridiculous promise. Nah, I’m joking; this may be one of my favourite stories I’ve come across in NYC and what’s even sweeter is that Vourderis’ two sons have continued to look after this landmark since their father’s death #ConeyIsland #Brooklyn #Coney #WonderWheel #Themepark #NewYork #NYC #Skyline #SeeYourCity #NYCGo @NYCGo @NYC #InstagramNYC @NewYorkCity #NYCInstantly #nycphotographer #nycblogger #Paper #Paperart #Silhouette @newyork_instagram @newyork #thecreatorsclass #illgrammers #createcommune #artofvisuals #visualsoflife #architectureporn #newyorker #USA #ArchitectureLovers #PaperArt #Bike #Motorbike

Beside the Coney Island boardwalk is this structure, the Parachute Jump. When it opened in 1940, it was designed to simulate the experience of falling to earth in a parachute but it struggled to make money. So the operators came up with an idea; they offered free rides to young women who looked like “screamers”. They’d then purposefully strand the ladies in mid-air during the descent so they, as expected, would scream in terror. Totally cruel, but for a while it did help to attract the crowds. However even these marketing tactics weren’t enough and combined with the fact that the ride often had to shut due to wind, it closed forever in 1964. Since then the tower has survived abandonment, planned demolitions, fires & Hurricane Sandy. Even Trump’s Dad tried to pull this thing down but it’s still here- a series of feats worth blowing it’s own trumpet about I reckon.

Imagine this. You’re representing a country that is seeking a permanent place on the security council at the United Nations. You’ve flown half way around the world to make your very first speech here. It’s a big deal. You want to ensure your address to international delegates is as memorable as possible right? Well, a man named SM Krishna managed that…by reading the wrong speech. Somehow the Indian minister read the Portuguese foreign minister’s speech & didn’t realise they weren’t his own words until three minutes in. By that point he’d already given a warm welcome to Portuguese speaking members & discussed the role of the EU. When he finally realised his mistake he calmly put down the piece of paper, picked up the correct speech and started again #UnitedNations #UN #NewYork #NYC #Skyline #SeeYourCity #NYCGo @NYCGo @NYC #InstagramNYC @NewYorkCity #NYCInstantly #Shopping #Handbag #nycnightlife #nycphotographer #nycblogger #Paper #Paperart #Cityscape #Silhouette @newyork_instagram @newyork #thecreatorsclass #illgrammers #createcommune #photography #doyoutravel #artofvisuals #visualsoflife #travelawesome #architectureporn #newyorker #bigapple #USA @unitednations

If you have time to do only one thing in Hong Kong, come up here to The Peak. If you have time to do many things, put coming up here at the top of your list. Take the famous tram ride up the hill from Central and then head into here, The Peak Tower. Climb up to the top and you’ll find a viewing terrace which overlooks the Island. It’s from up here that you can take the classic Hong Kong photo of the city’s skyscrapers nestled between the gap in the mountains @DiscoverHongKong #ThePeak #HongKong #HK #HKIG #HongKongLife #JunkShip #Ship #Boat #DiscoverHongKong #IgersHongKong #VictoriaPeak #ILoveHongKong #Travel #Adventure #PassionPassport #Paper #PaperArt #Silhouette #ArchitectureLovers #ArchitecturePorn #Architecture #Wanderlust #Cityscape #Illusion #Photography

Sometimes I’ll have an idea for a photo but when I go to shoot it, the idea doesn’t translate on camera. I thought this might be one of those occasions but back in Autumn, standing in the middle of the Champs-Élysées with my eye to the viewfinder, I realised it did work. So the moral of the story is “Always give it a go”, or maybe it’s “Don’t stand in the middle of Parisian traffic, unless you have a banging idea for an Instagram snap”.

In the 14th Century, Sang Nila Utama came to these shores and spotted an animal with fur like flames and a dark, black head. His men advised him he probably saw a Lion and so he named the island Singapore ('Singa' being Lion in Malay, and 'Pura' meaning city in Sanskirt). However, it's likely that what Sang Nila saw that day was a Tiger as there's no evidence Lions ever roamed here. Today they do though, there's some at the Zoo and there's this epic Merlion on the waterfront @visit_singapore #yoursingapore #singapore #wow_singapore #singaporetoday #exploresingapore #singapore_city #ig_singapore #travel #architecture #architecturelovers #architectureporn #passionpassport #cinemagraph #gif #paperart #cutout #lion #merlion #instasingapore #adventure #silhouette #wanderlust #paper #art #water #city #lions

In 2011 charity worker Lloyd Scott completed the London Marathon dressed as a snail. He spent 26 days on his hands and knees crawling his way towards the finish line, suffering nose bleeds and cramp along the way. Just days later, the charity he completed the marathon for, sacked him due to "losses incurred". It turns out the elaborate snail costume, support costs and publicity cost the charity a lot more than Mr Scott managed to raise #londoncityhall #towerbridge #londonmarathon #marathon #snail #london #london4all #thisislondon #travel #londonlife #cityoflondon #instalondon #londonforyou #igerslondon #animalart #shutup_london #prettycitylondon #instalondon #ilovelondon #visitlondon #instalondon #paperart #architecture #architecturelovers #architectureporn #topphotolondon @london @architecturelondon

This is the iconic Spire rising up from the centre of Dublin. You might already know that Colin Farrell is from here, but Dublin gave Hollywood an even bigger star; Slats the lion. Never heard of him? He was the original lion that roars in the clip at the beginning of MGM films. Dublin also gave Hollywood the Oscar statuette; it was designed by local man Cedric Gibbons #dublin #dublincity #igersdublin #lovindublin #lovedublin #discoverdublin #instadublin @dublindiaries @visitdublin @picturethisdublin #loveireland #ireland_gram #paper #dancer #poledance #poledancing #silhouette #wanderlust #travel #adventure #passionpassport #architectureporn #architecturelovers #instagram #hollywood #oscar #film #thespire #spire #intepidtravel #architecture @lovindublin

"Aww, look at that cute cat in the (Azure) window". This is the highlight of Gozo, a natural wonder formed when two limestone sea caves collapsed. If you recognise it, it might be because it was used as the setting of Daenerys Targaryens’ wedding to Khal Drogo in Game of Thrones. If you’re looking for a place to get married, weddings are allowed here (but perhaps hold back on the hundreds of horses, weapons and fighting though) #azurewindow #gozo #malta #gameofthrones #khaldrogo #Daenerystargaryen #GeorgeRRMartin #HBO #Cat #kitten #cats #wedding #naturalwonder #bride #visitgozo #lovemalta #maltaphotography #visitmalta #instamalta #igersmalta #wanderlust #travel #adventure #passionpassport #travelandlife #intrepidtravel #bestintravel #holiday #vacation #sea

Novelists James Joyce and Ernest Hemingway were drinking buddies in Paris- often picking fights on their drunken nights out. Famously, Hemingway took a urinal from his favourite bar in Paris and had it installed into his American abode, arguing that he had "pissed away" so much money into the urinal that he owned it #montmartre #basiliquedusacrecoeur #hemingway #karate #silhouette #instaart #paris #parisjetaime #parisian #topparisphoto #visitparis #parismaville @paris_tourisme #igersparis #loves_paris #igersfrance #instagram #forcedperspective #citytrip #wanderlust #travel #adventure #passionpassport #architecture #travelandlife #intrepidtravel #adventureinstagoodmyphoto #guardiancities #guardiantravelsnaps #bestintravel
