During our childhood years, trips to the beach involved burying our friends in the sand, making sand mountains and of course, making sand castles. We have all dreamt of staying inside our tiny castle creations, but we all forgot about that dream because we couldn’t fit.

Worry not, for our childhood desire of staying in a sandcastle has been addressed. The first sandcastle hotels has been opened in the Frisian towns of Sneek and the Brabant Oss, Netherlands. You can now experience living in a sandcastle (even temporarily!) and enjoy the exotic feeling of staying in a hotel hidden in a meter-high sand sculpture. As their website puts it, “come enjoy a sand-tastic experience!”

Imagine having a sand sculpture at the foot of your bed. This has “Instagrammable” written all over it.

It would be fun to take lots of pictures around every corner of this room. The bed looks very comfortable as well. A perfect getaway not just for the thrill-seeking child-at-heart, but for everyone!

Mysterious Beach Formations Baffle Scientists 

These are stunningly beautiful formations…

For years, scientists were unable to explain how beach cusps are formed.

These beautiful yet mysterious regularly spaced, crescentic formations usually appear during or after storms. While those who believe in extra-terrestrial life may attribute these beautiful shoreline formations to aliens, there are two existing theories on how they are formed.

The ‘standing edge’ theory claims that the interaction between the normal waves approaching the shore and the edge waves gives rise to regularly-spaced points of different wave intensity. Meanwhile, the self-organisation theory explains that beach cusps are products of interactions among wave, current, as well as sand over time that result to feedback loops.

If you’re a pilot, would you re-route a flight to save a dog’s life even if it would cost the airline extra $10,000 worth of fuel and an arrival delay? An Air Canada pilot thought it was worth it. He knew that the trip might kill a 7-year-old French bulldog named Simba so he made a stopover at the nearest airport.

According to City News, Simba was resting in the cargo hold of the Air Canada flight that is on its to Toronto from Tel Aviv. Before the plane crosses over the Atlantic Ocean, the pilot suddenly noticed that the temperature in the cargo hold was dropping, and this would kill the dog.

Knowing this, the pilot immediately took the turn and changed the plane's course, taking to a stopover in Frankfurt, Germany, to prevent the poor little dog from freezing to death.

I will never understand why people ride roller coasters. I mean, why would you risk life and limb for a few minutes of high? Well, for adrenaline junkies, no roller coaster is too scary not to get into...maybe except for this one. Because this promises to be the mother of all scary roller coasters.
