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 ...

Santa Monica California. I googled the name on the bottom left of the image and came across this post. The post says Malibu, but I think Malibu is further up the coast. For some reason, I can't find the name of the road on google maps, so had to resort to using bing... Very close to Santa Monica pier. Google streetview link.

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.

I also find it incredibly difficult to search for a lot of things in Japan, especially in English on Google. Having the exact Japanese name and address makes things easier. This tower is actually not a "Castle" but rather a "castle style tower". It is an observation/look-out tower. Here is the address: 松島城天守閣天望台 〒981-0213 Miyagi-ken, Miyagi-gun, ...

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.

This photo was taken in Santa Monica, California, from the bridge leading to the pier, which is named Colorado Avenue. You can see the same angle from Street View.

Clicking "show more" below the video you will read: The Performance of Russian guitarist Estas Tonne at the Buskers Festival Stadtspektakel in Landshut in September 2011 in the Old Town with "The Song of the Golden Dragon".. The shoe store "Lipp" and the Commerzbank in the video give away the precise address: Altstadt 76, Landshut, Germany. Here is ...

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".

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/

It's the Fausto Theater, as identified on this photo blog. More information on the history of the theatre found on cinematreasures.org. 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 ...

Google Maps places the pension slightly differently than the buildings you located. This appears to be the route on Google Maps. Google Maps satellite photo also seems to match the pictures found under this link about a festival that took place at the pension. You can see a garden and solar panels in the pictures that seem to also be visible in the ...

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 ...

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 ...

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.

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". ...

The Liberty Science Center in Jersey City, New Jersey, US, opened a Rubik's Cube exhibition named Beyond Rubik's Cube in April 2014. It remained there until November 2014, and then became a traveling exhibition (schedule available). Google collaborated with the museum in the exhibition's design. Among other things it includes a 10-foot (3 meter) tall Rubik'...

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 you'...

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 ...

You're looking for somewhere near the antipode of Great Britain, which is closest to New Zealand. It's hard to tell without looking at a detailed map, but the Chatham Islands are quite far from several places named "Chatham" in the UK. New Zealand is full of nearby places with UK-derived names: Christchurch, Canterbury, Dunedin, even a rural intersection ...

According to Horario de Buses the bus terminal is called "Terminal Rodoviario de Valparaíso" and the Google Maps insert calls it "Copropietarios Terminal Rodoviarío de Valparaíso". Romani Buses calls it "Ag.Terminal Valparaiso". It seems the correct address is Av. Pedro Montt 2831, Valparaiso, Región de Valparaíso Which looks to be right next to Google ...

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.

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 ...
