Dangerous Bridges 4

Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge

The famous Carrick-a-Rede rope bridge spans a chasm 80 feet deep. Earlier its structure had only one cable hand bar and broadly placed planks which enabled the people to go across. The single hand bar was later substituted with two hand bar bridge. 
The existing one was set up as an additional security measure.Though there is no major accident on record, on many occasions visitors had to be evacuated as they were unable to walk back over the bridge. 
Constructed to serve the requirement of local fisher folk, the uniqueness of its construction made it a tourist destination.

Dangerous Bridges 2

Hussaini – Borit Lake, Pakistan

The Hussaini-Borit Lake Bridge in Northern Pakistan is a major tourist spot for sheer thrills. Built on Hussaini Borit Lake, no authentic record is available of its creator.
This picturesque piece of engineering is considered among the most dangerous bridges in the world because of the difficulty it poses while crossing. This is because of the instability in balance and wide spacing of the wooden planks to step on. 
The bridge swings viciously due to winds and travelers risk the chance of being thrown off in the water to possible death. It is located close to the village Passu surrounded by small hamlets.

Most Popular Ice Cream Flavors

Who does not love ice-creams? 
Everyone loves the creamy, delicious and ‘coolest’ dessert in the world! Even those who say they don’t are simply dieting or have a cold! 
The origin of Ice creams is dated back to the time when Emperor Nero asked for some ice to be fetched from the mountains and ate it with fruits. Over the years the resources became abundant and several Ice cream recipes emerged from nowhere. Soon the markets of every town, big or small, flooded with Ice creams in all kinds of flavors.
Ice cream is one thing which is cold but is relished in summers as well as winters. There are several flavors available today in the market and some of them happen to be more popular than the others.

1. Vanilla

The most popular Ice cream flavor is Vanilla. The flavor of Vanilla comes from a plant called vanilla planifolia. This plant is grown mainly in Madagascar. Few other places where it is grown include Tahiti and Mexico. The flavor has gained popularity because of its amazing taste. Another reason why it is so popular is also because of its flexibility of being mixed with any kind of ice cream.

2. Chocolate

The chocolate ice creams happen to be the next one in line for popularity. The reason is again the taste and the way it can be combined with nuts, made in to syrups, mixed with desserts and ice creams of course. The way the chocolate flavor is used in ice creams differs from Vanilla flavor. Sometimes the chocolate is mixed with the ice cream after making a powder out of it and sometimes syrup is made out of it to pour it over the ice cream.

3. Strawberry
Another popular flavor in ice creams is Strawberry. The reason for its popularity is the freshness of the fruit which is transferred to the ice cream and the sweet n sour taste which makes the ice creams even more delightful!
