PWN Heights

So I ran across these on the web not too long ago... Awesome houses unless your afraid of heights!
Bonifacio, Corsica

Apparently there was a rock slide 20 years ago and 2-3 of the houses plummeted into the ocean! But as you can see the residents of Bonifacio are unshaken, as they continue to stalwartly occupy their precarious mansions.
The view is great but watch that first step!

My dream house!

I couldn't find where this house is, but WOW it looks awesome.

Judging by the looks of it, I'd say it's on some small Greek Isle somewhere in the meditarranean... but I could be waay off.

When I get rich and buy and island, this will be the one.

A monastery literally on the side of a sheer cliff face!
Tiger's Nest in Paro Valley, Bhutan

This is the ultimate in vertical living. Not only does the "nest" occupy a tiny precarious stretch of land on the cliff, but everything must be shipped in by donkey, and even they can't make it all the way. Once near the gates the path gets so narrow that a conveyor belt of monks is needed to get heavy supplies into the village.

Imagine building this place when everything you need had to be literally carried in.

Awesome place to visit but wouldn't want to live there.

God forbid any of the monks sleepwalk!

heights PWNT!
