This week we're thirsty for points of connection. Come see what's on the other side.
1. Gaiola Bridge, Naples, Italy
The island of Gaiola consists of two islets connected by a narrow bridge. It's hard to believe that this picturesque spot is considered cursed, but it's earned an eerie reputation due to several of the island's owners meeting untimely ends over the last 100 years. Visiting is harmless though, so pack a bikini and some good juju; your positive vibes are needed to help reverse the curse.
2. Moses Bridge, Fort De Roovere, Netherlands
This wooden bridge "parts the waters" of Fort De Roovere's moat, allowing passersby to remain nearly hidden as they travel at water level - perfect for when you need to storm the castle after being mostly dead all day.
3. Devil's Bridge, Sedona, Arizona
This natural sandstone arch is one hell of a footpath. Located in the Coconino National Forest, this popular landmark attracts hikers, photographers, and globetrotters who don't mind tempting fate every once in a while. After all, it takes moxie to dance with the devil.
4. Ancient Bridge in Kromlau, Sachsen, Germany
With a reflection that brings this serene scene full circle, it's easy to see the appeal of this quaint overpass in Rhododendron Park. This is the postcard shot that you send home to mom.
5. Inca Rope Bridge of Q'eswachaka, Peru
The last remaining Inca rope bridge spans the Apurimac River in Canas Province. Villagers use local fibers and centuries-old techniques to renew the bridge each June, a beautiful gesture that draws the community together and honors ancestral tradition.
6. Suspended Bridge in Gunt Valley, Pamir Mountains, Tajikistan
Bridge-crossing (like life) is all about putting one foot in front of the other. You never know where you might end up.
7. The Kawarau Bridge, Queenstown, New Zealand
Seasoned thrill-seekers know this bridge by name. In November of 1988, commercial bungy (bungee) jumping was launched at Kawarau. For the last 27 years, wanderers from all over the world have taken this zesty 43 meter plunge.
This is the only site in Queenstown that offers tandem bungy, so break out your bucket list and bring a friend. You won't regret it.
Cactus Water bridges health and fun.
