Swim In A Yellow Sea?

yellow-sea

During springtime, bright yellow canola flowers bloom, causing the countryside to burst into life. The flowers, also known as rapeseed, fill the region with a sea of yellow against a dramatic backdrop of the darker conical hills. Terraces cut into the fields and weave a dark contrast through the yellow, while the hills pop out like islands amongst the sea of blooms. The sight is simply breathtaking. The best views can be enjoyed in Lingyi temple located on top of one of the hills. The blooms last only during the spring season – by June the display is gone.” w/ photos

Whispering Wall?

Truffle Ice Cream Cones

truffle-ic-cones

Who says that you can only enjoy ice creams in the baking summer months? Well, no one who’s wrapped their tongue around these luxurious and ludicrously lickable Truffle Ice Cream Cones. Lovingly hand-crafted in Somerset (where all quality chocolate comes from) you can feast upon three unbelievably scrumptious flavors – Sea Salt and Caramel, Strawberry and Champagne and Triple Chocolate Brownie. They make perfect miniature puddings and unsurprisingly go very well with actual ice-cream.” w/ photos

Top 10 Things That Shouldn’t Have Their Own Museum But Do

their-own-museum

“Dinosaur bones, fine art, historical documents — these are all fine things to put on display for people to enjoy. Then there are other things, things that you might more commonly find in your refrigerator, in the bottom of your junk drawer, or in the garbage. Sometimes, all it takes is a special sort of person to think outside the box and realize that what this world is missing is a museum related to, for example, all things urine.” w/ photos
