We at Popular Kinetics have a penchant for the unusual, the surprising, and the downright bizarre. Hence, the Atlas Obscura blog site is an absolute favorite of ours! Founded by Dyland Thuras and Josh Foer, Atlas Obscura is an ongoing visual dialogue and database of curious places across the globe. To give you a sense of the AO spirit, three tenants of the creators are:  

There is something new under the sun, every day, all over the world

2. Around the corner is something that will surprise the hell out of you

3. Atlas Obscura is for people who still believe in

So get ready for adventure. Visit the Atlas Obscura site, and plan to spend some time roaming around. You could end up in some astonishing places.
