Well tineye.com got a few hits but nothing to solve the problem... But Google Image Search using your photo as the search parameter was more helpful. One of the many hits was to a blog called The Sticky Egg, specifically the post from November 13 2011 called "Feeling Bookish", which includes an address: De Batavier in Lootstraat, Amsterdam. Then ...

Yep, it's real. This wiki article corresponds with the information you have, and searching the island name itself pulls up lots of information about the destination in mind for you: Vaadhoo (Raa Atoll) Vaadhoo island is famous for the 'sea of stars.' This marine bioluminescence is generated by phytoplankton known as dinoflagellates. Woodland Hastings ...

OK, It's called the Hite Crossing Bridge, and a Street View shot is available at this link that best matches the angle you have. It confused me for a bit as yours is using a long lens, but you can 'walk' down the hill and confirm it's all the same rocks, and in your shot you can just make out the Hite Bridge in the background, which is certainly the one at ...

Google reverse image search locates the original of this picture. It is the Fausto Theatre in Havana. The ants were a temporary exhibit.

This is the Rock of Cashel. Located at Cashel, County Tipperary, Ireland. This castle is also known as: Cashel of the Kings and St. Patrick's Rock.

That is the Teatro Fausto, on the corner of Prado and Colon, in Havana Cuba. The "ants" you see in the photo were an artist's exhibit in 2012 for the Havana Biennial. They are no longer on the building.

Google on "half-buried armenian monastery" gives WikiTravel page on Northern Armenia. There I found Haghpat Monastery. Google images confirms.

The address of the church you are talking about is surprisingly hard to find -- you can get all sorts of kinda helpful directions, but no street names are involved. From what I could find, the GPS coordinates are: 43.08208, 25.64125 The street is called "ul. Mitropolit Panaret Rashev" (ул. Митрополит Панарет Рашев). Google knows where to find it, although ...

Currently found only this article with "maybe" address: Lachezar Stanchev Street in the Izgrev borough And from comments found news about that opening date is September, 16. This official news also says that this address is right: Some of the National Art Gallery’s works are to go on travelling exhibitions, while some will go on temporary loan to the ...

Have you had a look at the Iparművészeti Múzeum (sorry, no english page...)? According to http://budapestinterim.blogspot.com, there is (or was) an exhibition about Rubik cubes... They have a page about new acquisitions they made in 2009 which very briefly mentions "a Rubik's collection".

It's the Fausto Theater, as identified on this photo blog. For more information on the history of the theatre. Located in the Habana Vieja (old town) district of Havana, on the Prado at the corner of Esquina Colon in the Jaruco neighborhood. The Cine-Teatro Fausto was built in 1938 and designed in an Art Deco style, by architect Saturino ...

Haghpat monastery located in the north of Armenia.

You're only off by a couple hundred meters. The problem is that the available satellite imagery is not very detailed, not sufficiently to make an object this small (when viewed from above) clearly visible. From above an object of this size is not quite as wide as a lorry, and perhaps as long. So, as we can see from the satellite image, which does capture ...

The town you're looking for seems to be Leh in the Indian state of Jammu and Kashmir quite in the north of India. Leh seems to be the common name, but in Tibetian it is written like that: གླེ. The picture you have mentioned in the question could be either from the Shey Monastery or similar monasteries such as Thiksey, or the Leh Palace. However, all of them ...

Just by looking at the map (I've spent some time in Chile but missed that), it looks like Iquique would be the most obvious starting place. A city with 166,000 people in 2002 and beaches has of course tourist tours.

Next year they'll start building a Rubik's Cube shaped museum that might open for the public in 2017 :) http://ruwix.com/the-rubiks-cube/museum/

There is a post on the Lonely Planet Thorn Tree about Rosa and her place. It's slightly confusing in that it talks about two addresses, a postal one and a "found" one. There's a slight chance the postal address is for a place where Rosa lives apart from the guest house. The other one seems to have a Polish name rather than Bulgarian and doesn't seem to ...

According to this PDF document from the official site of the hall of Bacau the new name of the Filimon Sirbu street is GEORGE BACOVIA. I do not speak Romanian, but google translate says that "Denumire veche" means "old name". Also, it seems that this street had a few other old names beside Filimon Sirbu: "Gimnaziu", "Regina Maria" and "Calea Moinesti". ...

I don't speak Latvian, but my girlfriend is Latvian. I'll make her an account later, but for now, here's what she says: If you go to the "Vietas" tab it gives you a list of street names and numbers of their sites. All the sites are located in Rīga. So, for example, Marijas 19 means : Marijas Street 19, Rīga. Copy-paste the addresses in google maps and ...

I tried translating the site with Bing Translate, but because it's Flash it won't translate. However I did the menu words one at a time, and Vietas means Site - locations, I think. That page just has a number of words with a number after each. If you click on a word, you get a phone number and what are obviously opening hours. The next step would be to ...

The Wikipedia entry tells us that is a 90 mile long valley in Northern California, the city of Salinas is at the northwestern end of the valley, the Salinas rivers flows all along the valley. Steinbeck's novels where all over the valley, I don't know about any specific location worth checking out.

As I have lived in Shanghai for 9 years, I don't remember there are any noticeable stone elephants in the city, and if there is, it'd be difficult to find. Unlike some other tourism cities, places in Shanghai are generally small and they scatter around the city, except several places such as the Bund area and some big parks. There're more than 600 ...

As a Latvian :) I can suggest a better way to search: by using the online Latvian Yellow Pages. Because not all are on the maps, which might be outdated, while the yellow pages keeps up-to-date information.

Hmm, difficult to find. Elephant Trunk Hill Park has some stone elephant statues in the river, but unfortunately that's 19 hours from Shanghai, so even further away. Unless you're travelling further into China. There are some at the Ming Tombs. I'm not sure if this is the same place as the Ming Xialing Mausoleum, but it's 30 miles from Beijing. I found ...

If you go to http://images.google.com, then click on the camera icon in the right of the search box, you can enter the url of an image or upload one to search with it. Using this you can usually find the answer in 2 seconds. It gives this page, and tells you that it is the Haghpat Monastery. Hopefully this will be helpful in the future, and to others.

Kargah Buddha is located approximately at: 35° 54' 38.30" N 74° 15' 43.20" E. You should be able to spot it if you are around there. Google Maps is not high-res enough to be able to see it in the satellite view, I guess that's also due to the angle of the carved Buddha image, anyhow Google Maps includes a photo of the Kargah Buddha when pointing the map ...

It looks like that page I quoted on www.cambodiahome.com is at least out of date, and probably just outright wrong. I asked the person at the desk at my guesthouse and it seems jpatokal and Tom are right that it can't be done directly in Siem Reap. The guesthouse quoted me a price above $60 taking four days by sending it off to Phnom Penh. I think I'll ...

From the coach tracker section of the website, you can see a map with a photo. It's a Google map, and Google shows the bus stop on the map. The A9 coach stops on Bethnal Green Road, just north of the Shoreditch High Street Overground station. The stop is at the very end of Bethnal Green Road as it terminates onto Shoreditch High Street. SDC is the first ...

It is likely you are thinking of El club La Terrrazza (note the 3 'r's). You go up a hill through a quaint village with twisty sort of small streets to get there. It's a converted villa rather than a cathedral, and the 'roof' you wrote about is most likely their balcony. The club opened in 1995 so meets your dating criteria of October 2000. Also, it has ...

According to their website, the address is supposed to be No.99, Ying Bin Lu, GuanDu Qu, Kunming, Yunnan Province, China Off : +86-871- 816 2806, 816 2814 Fax : +86-871 816 2803 Email : mcgkunming.cn@gmail.com That's in a park, here, on google maps. The pointer description (缅甸联邦驻昆明总领事馆) stands for "Consulate General of the Union of Myanmar ...
