Cool find py :biggthump

A field trip would be awesome!!!

Here are the 2 that would be at the top of my list:

Skellig Michael, Ireland (http://www.travelandleisure.com/guides/ireland/hotels)

Skellig Michael, Ireland (http://www.travelandleisure.com/guides/ireland/hotels)

Why It’s Eerie: Rising like a sunken Gothic cathedral off Ireland’s Iveragh peninsula, the island of Skellig Michael was home to Irish Christian monks for some 600 years until A.D. 1100, when it was abandoned out of fear of more Viking raids. Today it’s a UNESCO World Heritage site, and all that remains are the 600 carved stone steps to the summit, some stone clocháns (beehive-shaped huts), and the haunting cries of gannets and gulls.
How to Experience It: To heighten the otherworldliness of the Skelligs, go on an organized dive (http://www.skelligboats.com/) (from $250) in the Gulf Stream–warmed waters around the islands to spot seals, minke whales, hard and soft coral, and steep seawalls coated with colorful anemones.


Bhangarh, India (http://www.travelandleisure.com/guides/india-asia)

Bhangarh, India (http://www.travelandleisure.com/guides/india-asia)

Why It’s Eerie: In 1783, this dusty, rusty city in Rajasthan was abandoned overnight after a guru cursed all residents to death, without rebirth. Today it’s forbidden to visit after sunset; locals and tourists enter during daylight hours only. What remains are eerie ruins, which include two abandoned Hindu temples, several banyan trees, and a few troops of macaque and langur monkeys.
How to Experience It: Known for its luxed-out haveli, Amanbagh (http://www.travelandleisure.com/hotels/amanbagh), just 10 miles away, offers guided twilight tours of Bhangarh (doubles from $550).
