🥇 Miradouro do Cabo Girão, Madeira, Portugal · 17 pics by @alexanderfluke

"The observation deck of Cabo Girão has an interesting feature — part of the platform is made in the form of a balcony with a transparent floor and hangs over the cliff which greatly enhances the impression of being at such a high altitude. The floor trampled by visitors is no longer as transparent as it used to be, but some people (such as people with a fear of heights) get their adrenaline rush anyway. "

🥈 Old oak forest and amazing oaks, symbols of strength and life! by @ladysnowhite

" Oakwood is especially represented in the culture of the ancient Slavs. It was believed that the gods lived in the oak tree. That is why this tree had the role of a temple, and various rituals were performed around them. Later, when some Slavic peoples converted to Christianity, a cross was carved into the bark of some oaks."

🥉 Jumping crocodile’s - Northern Territory Australia 🐊🇦🇺 by @vcclothing

"As the name states this is exactly what the cruise implies, you get to cruise down the Adelaide River to see Saltwater crocodile’s jumping out of the water for a little snake of buffalo meat.Now the jury is out on how ethical this practise is, as crocodile's will jump up out of the water to snatch an animal out of a tree for food. But teaching them to come up to a boat and jump up for food must be an absolute nightmare for the locals who fish these rivers. "

      Thanks a lot @LivingUKTaiwan!🙂 I honestly did not expect that my post would enter the top three because unfortunately this old oak forest is poorly visited by tourists. But that's why we promoted it well and I'm glad it's on your map.😃 Greetings to all and congratulations to the winners and participants!😊
