Let's get lost.

One of my favorite web destinations lately is a blog called Curious Places which is run by an inspiring artist Jinx in the Sky. She describes her blog as "a collection of the weirdest & wonderfulest places built by people with a colourful imagination all around the world." 

And that really is a perfect description. Here you can discover some of the dreamiest places from around the world. Most of the places you will see here will spark an instant desire to teleport yourself there.

Floating house, Krasnosilka/ Ukraine
"Tunnel of Love", Kleven/Ukraine

One of the places that caught my attention was San Zhi UFO houses just outside Taipei in Taiwan.

The construction of this set of pod shaped buildings, also known as San Zhi Pod City, began in 1978. but the houses were never inhabited by people as the project was abandoned in 1980. Some say the reason for abandonment was the investment losses and the more interesting stories say that the main reason was strange fatal accidents which happened during the construction. Some people believed that the site was the former burial ground and therefor haunted.

In late 2008. the demolition of this site began and UFO houses were thorn down so today this site is just a ghost field. Architecturally speaking, these houses looked really futuristic for the time they were built. To me, they even look futuristic today. So you can say that people decided to build the future and then tear it down. Strange, ha?
