🥇 Exploring Turkey's "underground city" - Derinkuyu by @floridanow

Exploring our past has always intrigued me. Imagining how people lived, where they lived and the means to survive. Today we look at the "underground city" of Derinkuyu in Turkey. There are literally 200 underground cities in Turkey with Derinkuyu being the most infamous. Derinkuyu is an ancient multilayer underground city that supported life for perhaps up to 20,000+ people many years ago. Today, it is a popular tour destination and is excavated so that you can indeed see the unique living conditions for these people. It appears that the depth of the city is over 60 feet and contained several floor levels. There are nearly 100 miles of tunnels and these cities were used from generation to generation.

🥉 A prickly adventure in the Campsies by @natubat

It's been pretty awful for me and my hillwalking friends, having one of the longest, sunniest, driest spells since records began in Scotland, and not being able to enjoy it in our favourite place – the mountains. But with the lockdown regulations having relaxed a bit recently, me and my friend Karen decided to go walking in our local hills, the Campsies, just north of Glasgow. The highest hill in the Campsies is 578m, just over half the height of a Munro. We decided to climb Dumbreck, 508m high, because it's one of the less popular walks so we knew there would be few people there, if any. During our six-hour walk, we only passed one other person.
