^ Einstein, I think that second shot (phone box + Big Ben) must be mandatory for all tourists in Westminster! I have several of my own.

A small town in northern Spain, Bermeo has great public transportation system and excellent public transportation operators. One exceptionally friendly local bus driver voluntarily and happily stopped anytime he heard me oohed and aahed at the view outside the window. "Go ahead, take the picture," he said. The dozen of passengers on the bus nodded at his suggestion while smiling indulgently at my astonished expression.

The main attraction of Bermeo is the tiny island of Gaztelugatxe, connected to the mainland by a narrow footbridge. At the top (also the end) of the island is the hermitage San Juan de Gaztelugatxe, est. 9th century and dedicated to St. John the Baptist. The climb to the hermitage is based on Stations of the Cross.

Yep! Along with those other two on the side. And I found this neglected guy, unique in its own ways, somewhere near Trafalgar Square:

While on holiday in Poland in 2009 I walked across the border into Slovakia as far as a village called Sucha Hora.

What an absolutely incredible looking place. Thanks for sharing it. I have never heard of it before.

Located south of Antofagasta and north of Valparaíso in Chile, Chañaral is completely unspoiled town with neither high rise nor tourist attraction, and though it is a coastal town, it's not a seaside resort due to the presence of copper mines.

Nearby, Pan de Azúcar National Park is the pride of both Antofagasta and Atacama regions, but its harshness and isolation does not exactly appeal to tourists, especially when they learn that the only living things in the park are cacti, coyotes, and Chilla foxes. Had they given it a chance as we did, they might have found that its stark beauty was worth their time.
