Today we present to you the 10 most unusual vehicles, created by both professionals and self-taught inventors. Some of these vehicles already exist, and some will appear in the near future.
In this video, we meet Bonnie from Wakefield, Québec, Canada who is living on a gorgeous tiny house boat that is full of character and charm. The River Den (or La Tannière) has custom-made asymmetrical windows, a classic ship's wheel, antique fireplace, and hand-built furniture — all of which give the boat a warm and cozy feel that makes you feel at home as soon as you step on board. The boat is docked on the shore of the Gatineau River and Bonnie lives in it as often as she can when she's not renting it out on Airbnb (https://www.airbnb.ca/rooms/9678942?guests=1&s=vNzQNzuG). The tiny houseboat was designed by Bonnie and her boatbuilding friend, Denis Tremblay, who is known locally as the Wakefield Pirate. Denis and a few of his friends built the boat by hand, including the aluminum frame and the custom windows, the cabinets, and the grill floor in the loft. The boat is built on 5 pontoons that are designed to provide flotation while still taking on some water to keep the boat weighed down in the water for stability. The pontoons are also designed to freeze in the ice and are made by a local company called Les Quais Navigables (http://www.quaisnavigables.com). It's a 4-season house boat that is fully insulated and has an antique wood burning fireplace to provide heat in winter. For power, they installed a deep cycle marine battery that provides 12-Volt power for the lights, bilge pump, and navigation lights. They have a Separett composting toilet from Sweden (https://www.separett-usa.com), and a sink that pumps water from the river for washing dishes. For refrigeration, Bonnie uses a cooler with ice, but she might invest in some solar panels so that she can power a proper fridge eventually. The main floor has a kitchen, toilet, dining room and living room, and upstairs there is cozy a sleeping loft with a grill floor that allows heat to rise through the floor, and sun & dust to travel down to the main level. One of the windows in the loft opens up onto a gorgeous rooftop patio with a cedar deck and has space for some solar panels if/when Bonnie decides she needs them. The boat has a gas motor and can be taken out on the river which is quite impressive considering it's size! To make sure the boat was still road worthy, they built a wedge roof over the loft that can be taken apart if Bonnie wants to transport it to a different location. The boat is currently docked in the quaint little town of Wakefield, Québec where there are cute cafes, restaurants and shops right across the street.

I’m always fascinated when I see wild animals up close. I’ve been lucky enough to see both moose and deer at close range. Whenever that’s happened, I just stop and remain as quiet as possible so as not to scare them away. But for police officer Kevin Zieschang and one deer named “Uncle Buck” from Texas, USA, there was no need to remain silent. As this was a deer that in fact was not at all afraid of people. In fact, he went to them for help instead.

The ocean covers 80% of our world, and humans have only explored 5 percent of the entire world’s water. Considering that for centuries travel by water was our primary mode of transportation over long distances, it’s reasonable to assume there are hundreds, maybe thousands of interesting things, treasures, and creatures that lie undiscovered in the vast expanse of the oceans. Several amazing discoveries have already been made, here are some of the best.

In December of 2013, I was lucky enough to find myself on the remote island of Pemba - an island part of the Zanzibar archipelago just off the coast of Tanzania. There, I stayed with my family at the Manta Resort. More specifically, I got the opportunity to spend the 24th night in Manta's underwater room, which is the second of its kind. The experience was incredible - one that I would recommend to any extravagant explorer. Enjoy the video and comment any questions that I can answer.
