Europe’s abandoned border crossings

In 1995, the Schengen agreement took effect liberating travel between 7 European countries. Since then, more countries have been added and today 26 countries, members of the Schengen Area, have abolished border controls and share a common visa policy. As border checkpoints between these countries are no longer needed, many of them have been abandoned. Spanish photographer Ignacio Evangelista travelled around Europe to take photos of those abandoned border checkpoints for his award-winning project “After Schengen”.

This Lake Is The Clearest In The World Which Doesn't Sound Like Much Until You See The Last Photo

It is called Blue Lake, or Rotomairewhenua. It is the clearest lake you will ever see. That is no exaggeration. It is currently the world record holder for the clearest freshwater lake in the world. Located in beautiful Nelson Lakes National Park in New Zealand, Blue Lake has a recorded visibility of up to 80 meters, which is more than 260 feet. That makes it as clear as distilled water. As you look at the pictures you will want to travel to its location and take a swim in its pristine waters, but you can't. Read below to see some beautiful pictures and also to find out why exactly you can't swim in these gorgeous waters.

Grandfather Builds Epic 3-Story, 40Ft Treehouse For His Grandkids

Jay Hewitt is a handyman in Massachusetts who is definitely in the running for grandfather of the year. The experienced contractor is building an epic, 3-story, 40-foot-tall treehouse for his grandkids and family to enjoy.
Before his 5-year-old grandson and 4-year-old granddaughter were born, Hewitt said, “I wanted to build a treehouse for them. You’ve never seen a treehouse like the one I’m gonna build for them.” He had enjoyed a treehouse in his own childhood, “but it was basically a 4-by-8 sheet of plywood. I never dreamed that a treehouse would be anything like this.”
Hewitt began building the treehouse about a year ago. He currently intends to sell the entire property, but if he doesn’t find a buyer, he plans to continue expanding the treehouse.
