Who ever said that life is not like the movies?

A couple from Transylvania, Romania has made a castle that seemed to be taken out of a fairytale scene.

Razvan and Gabriela Vasile, who are both singers by profession, have built a fairytale castle out of 100% organic materials — clay, straw, sand, wooden pillarsand stone.

They have moved out of their urban home in Bucharest and transferred to a village 24 miles (40 km) from the city of Sibiu.

Castelul de Lut or Clay Castle, a place with not even a trace of modern paint or varnish, stands in a place that fit it well as it is called Valea Zanelor or The Valley of Faries.

The 10-room Clay Castle of the Valley of the Fairies which work began in 2014 is now fully constructed. It is now being decorated and refined inside and soon people could stay in it. The eco-castle will open by the end of the year.

While it is still not operating as a hotel yet, tourists visit the place to gaze in the magnificent views of the Carpathian Mountains blanketed in white, proximity to the famous Transfagarasan highway and medieval Sibiu.

A visit gives them the escape and tranquility from the busy city life. It is perfect for those who seek solitude.

It delivers the image of the Brothers Grimm or Hobbit house, however you want to look at it.
The place gives the complete authentic Romanian feel as it will serve local dishes on its restaurant.

The ten rooms will be kept warm during winter with traditional wood-burning fires. The place has no use of air-conditioning and anything harmful to the ecology.

Couples could also live their real-life fairytale and have their wedding at the place as one already hosted theirs at the castle.

Norway to Build World’s First Floating Underwater Tunnels

Norway has proposed a quicker way to get from Kristiansand to Trondheim, and it’s through 4000-ft concrete underwater tunnels!

If we can build sky-high super highways, who says we can't build underwater traffic tunnels too?

Norway has proposed a solution to the usual 21-hour drive from one end of the country across the nation's many fjords to the other (from Kristiansand to Trondheim via the E39), and it's in the form of submerged floating tunnels.

The proposed tunnel consists of 4,000-foot long concrete tubes that can hold two lanes of traffic. These tubes will be suspended under 100 feet of water, placing them far below the water affected by ships. They will also be held up by pontoons along the surface and connected with trusses. Each pontoon will be spaced wide enough for even the widest of ships to pass through. For added stability, they may also be bolted to the bedrock below.
