Part of the Thousand Islands chain of islands in Canada, Just Room Enough was bought in 1950s by the Sizeland family who wanted a unique place to build a holiday home. They built their house with the walls just reaching to the edge of the island and gave the island its special name. The plan backfired on the family who were looking to find a quiet retreat, and instead had to deal with tourists and sightseers stopping by to take a look at their unusual home. 9- Hermitage of San Colombano – Located in Italy between Vivenza and Rovereto, the Hermitage of San Colombano sits high on a mountainside looking down upon the city below. 120 meters up the cliff, it was clearly built to give its inhabitants a reprise from the hustle and bustle of the world below. It was built almost 700 years ago in 1319 and is named after the Irish saint Colombano. To gain entry to the structure you need to pass through the Leno gorge and then climb up 102 steep steps up the gorge. Every Christmas there is a candlelight walk up to the hermitage to signify the pilgrims climbing up the steps to pay respect to the saint. 8- Casa Malaparte - Casa Malaparte also known as Villa Malaparte, is located on Punta Massullo on the eastern side of Capri, Italy. Construction started in 1937 by well-known architect Adalberto Libera. The house is a red masonry box shape with stairs leading up to a fabulous roof patio. The house can only be reached by crossing the island on foot and takes about an hour and a half to walk there from the summit. 7- Villa Mecklin —Located in the Finnish Archipelago, Villa Mecklin is as picturesque and secluded as you can get. Built in a small depression in the natural rock, the villa was built using all basic materials. On one side looking past the structure you see the water and looking past it from the other side you see the land, surrounded by trees, exposed rocks and plenty of vegetation. The highlight of the house is the terrace, which is large and faces out toward the water for the view of a lifetime. 6- Stockholm, Sweden – Several miles away from Stockholm, Sweden there’s an incredible house that sits on the highest point of a small island stretching out just 137 square meters. The house is isolated and beautiful and includes a living room, guest room, a kitchen and glass doors leading out to a large deck, plus a sauna. 5- Katskhi Pillar – 130 feet above the hills of central Georgia sits Katskhi Pillar. Georgia adopted Christianity as the state religion in the 4th century and the Katskhi Pillar became the site of a small church built in the 7th century. It’s sole resident for the past 20 years has been a Georgian monk. A fun fact about the pillar – women aren’t permitted to climb to the top. 4- Artist Studio Fogo Island, Canada – Fogo Islanders are simple, independent people who live to fish and enjoy the serenity of the beautiful landscape around them. Located on the island are six artist studios built by the Shorefast Foundation. The idea behind the studios design is to create a geometric structure that would contrast the natural setting around them. The studios stand on pillars near the sea and each are isolated and can actually be moved to any part of the island. 3- Thatched hut, Panama – Looking more like a scene out of Gilligan’s Island, this small island with a thatch roofed hut is the epitome of peace and quiet. The pole style thatched roof hut is common in Panama and can house an entire family. Building materials are tree trunks for the main pillars, bamboo poles as support and different types of leaves for the roof. A well-made hut can usually stand for as long as 30 years. 2- The House on the Sea– Living in this house is definitely like stepping into the land of Robinson Crusoe. Just off the coast of Cornwall, England, The House on the Sea is situated right on the beach and can only be reached by climbing across a 90 foot high suspension bridge. Surrounded by water and isolated from the town, the tiny island is far from basic. The interiors are a luxurious mix of sleek neutrals and modern design, with panoramic sea views offered at every turn. 1- Holy Trinity Monastery – Located in central Greece, the Holy Trinity Monastery is the oldest among the six functioning monasteries located there – having been built in 1476. It sits atop a 1300 foot rock and years ago access could only be gained by climbing a rope ladder with just a net below. Today the entrance is reached by climbing 140 steps cut into the rock. It once held historical treasures, such as precious manuscripts, however, they were stolen during World War II.

Here are some of the world's most dangerous and tallest bridges ever built and naturally formed like the Immortal Bridge in China. Subscribe to Talltanic http://goo.gl/wgfvrr 6. Some of the best Inca rope bridges reside in the Apurimac Canyon on the road north from Cuzco. These bridges were modest suspension bridges over canyons to provide an entrance for the Inca Empire. The Incas used natural fibers found in local areas to build bridges. These fibers were interlaced together making a sturdy rope that is strengthened with wood creating a cable floor. Each side was attached to a pair of stone anchors on both sides of a gorge with huge cables of woven grass interconnecting these two pylons together. Bridges like this were appropriate for use since the Inca people did not use wheeled transport and traffic was limited to walkers and livestock. These bridges were an essential part of the road system and are a perfect example of their innovation. They were commonly used by Chasqui runners carrying messages throughout the Inca Empire. 5. This sky bridge extends around the chasm on Pulau Langkawi. The Island is the largest in the Langkawi archipelago, Malaysia. It's suspended at 687 meters above the sea level, giving magnificent views of the Andaman Sea and Thailand's Tarutao Island to visitors. The outlook from the bridge is beyond magnificent. The curvature of the bridge provides several different viewpoints of the scenery. The Sky Bridge is amongst one of the most outstanding bridges in the world and can delivers quite a pump of adrenaline if you dare to cross. It is unique because the bridge is suspended by only one support column. The column is 95 yards and held up by 8 load-balancing cables. The bridge is a pedestrian bridge that spans 125 meters across a spectacular gorge. The bridge is 136 yards by 2 yards wide. The 1.8 m-wide Sky Bridge has two 3.6 m-wide platforms that provided a spectacular viewing area for visitors. When standing in front of the bridge you are at 687 meters above sea level. 4. This bridge is known as "Puente de Ojuela" by the local people in the city of Durango, Mexico. The city is well known as a ghost town because the resources of mineral ore has been exhausted. The only remaining and functional structure in the city is this suspension bridge. The original bridge was planned by the well-known Roebling brothers, who also designed the Brooklyn Bridge. At the time the bridge was constructed was the third longest suspension bridge in the world. Puente de Ojuela had to be recently rebuilt by the Peñoles Company; the original material had to be scrapped, and only the main arches are now displayed at a local center. 3. The Hussaini Hanging Bridge is known as the most treacherous bridge in the world. The Bridge is only one of several hazardous rope bridges located in Northern Pakistan. In 1978, the Karakoram Highway was finished, and the area was connected, but to this day, travel remains as hard as it was 100 years ago. Steady features of travel through this region include the wobbly cable and plank bridges which cross Northern Pakistan's mountain streams and rivers. For the majority of the citizens the only way to travel o Rawalpindi was by walking across mountain passes. The Hussaini Hanging Bridge crosses the Borit Lake in the Upper Hunza. This rope bridge is both long and weakly maintained. Many planks are absent, and high winds can shake the bridge as travelers cross it. It does nothing to ease your nerves looking at the previous, broken bridge that hangs in pieces next to the "new" one. 2. The bridge crossing the wide Vitim River in Siberia, Russia is made of wooden planks and is in poor condition. It is wide enough for a skilled driver to drive across at 570 meters. The Vitim River Bridge is located in Russian Siberia. During most of the year, it stays brutally cold there making temperatures way below average for Northern Ontario and everything is usually covered in snow and ice making it extremely difficult for even skilled drivers to cross. This bridge is an icicle with little to no traction however locals drive across this bridge because it is often their only way across Vitim River. 1. Natural Bridge in Bryce Canyon is one of the most famous arches in Utah. This arch is sculpted from some of the reddest rock of the Claron Formation and poses a beautiful contrast to the stark green of the forest that peeks through the arch from the canyon below.

10. Volcán, Panama
Volcán in Panama, also called the Shangri-La Valley, is one of the healthiest and most beautiful places in the world. It’s a popular location for people searching for a low cost of living and stunning scenery, but there’s more to this place than the mountains. Something about Volcán means that residents tend to live for far longer than you would expect based on the life expectancy of the rest of the country, with people often living well into their 80’s or 90’s.
This is likely due to the lifestyle you can enjoy here. Volcán is in the Chiriquí province, which is also known as Panama’s breadbasket, and provides about 80% of Panama’s produce. Farms of all sizes grow pretty much anything you could ever want. With constant spring-like temperatures, thermal springs, and fresh food that includes seafood, eggs and fruits; people that live here exist in a bubble of serenity and health. This is, of course, helped by the surrounding landscape, national parks and a wide variety of wildlife that makes it one of the best bird-watching locations in the whole of Panama.
9. Sardinia, Italy
The island of Sardinia is one of the first places in the world to be identified as a blue zone, a place that holds the world’s longest living people. It’s actually the place that has the highest concentration of male centenarians, with nearly ten times as many per capita than there are in the United States.
The reason why the people here live so long is a combination of their genetic traits along with their lifestyle, and it’s a great place to live. Not just if you want to live longer but because of their quality of life. They tend to keep things simple and have low stress! Life shouldn’t be so complicated! Islanders still hunt, fish and harvest all of the food that they eat, with a diet based around whole grain bread, beans, lots of vegetables and fruits, goat’s milk and cheese. They only tend eat meat on special occasions. The island is also a wonderful place to walk around and explore, and with their close community involvement and love for wine, you could do worse than to make this place your home.
8. Costa Rica
With cloud forests at five thousand feet, to glorious white sandy beaches, Costa Rica has everything you could want from a place to live. Add to this the bustling cities full of entertainment and culture, reliable infrastructure, and good health care, it’s no wonder that it’s a popular destination for expats and people looking to relocate looking for a better quality of life.
The happy planet index, which measures human well-being and environmental impact, ranks Costa Rica as one of the best places in the world to live. This is the result of a unique way of life in the country. For example, since 1949 their constitution has forbidden them from having an army, and it’s the location of the United Nations University for Peace. There’s also an impressive life expectancy, and a literacy rate of 97.8 per cent.
Everything is relatively cheap here too, although housing has gone up since it is popular with expats, and there’s no end of wondrous sights. Despite taking up 0.03 per cent of the planet, over 5% of the world’s biodiversity can be found here in the numerous protected forests and reserves that are full of hummingbirds, sloths and plenty more.
