the two famous leaning bell towers of the world



Pisa, Italy - "Torre pendente di Pisa" or the tower of Pisa is famous for it's magnificent architecture and unfortunately it was close since 1990 it is continualy leaning because of "shifting oil" so, no chance for us when are there way back May-June 2007. It was a wonderful experience to see this amazing tower.


Suurhusen,Emden - one of the main reason to come in this place is the bell tower of Suurhusen. It is now recognized as the most titled leaning tower in the world. Although it's not so famous and beautiful like the Pisa tower in Italy. Sorry about the constuctions site in the photos, please visit wikipedia for more details.

it's up to you guys which do you prefer? the Pisa or the tower in Suurhusen?

    I wonder, where will your backpack and flip-flops take you next ! Looking forward to it...

  8. Hi, have you guys noticed that some words are underlined ? and if you click it, there's an advertisement linked to it. At first I thought it was mispelled, but it wasn't.

    Just wondering ...
