Could be the oldest catacomb site in the World!!

Milos, one of the most beautiful islands of the Cyclades, has a very long history, like all other Greek Islands. The island is the site of Catacombs which tell the tragic story of early Christians in Greece.


According to archaeologists and historians, the awe-inspiring catacombs of Milos have served as the graveyard for 7,000-8,000 Christians, making the site the third most sacred early-Christian monument, after the Holy Land and the catacombs of Rome. The Catacombs of Milos, dating from the 1st - 5th century, are among the most important of the 74 discovered worldwide, together with the catacombs of Rome and the Holy Land. It is possible that the Catacombs of Milos are older than the ones of Rome.

The Netherlands... they now run all of their electric trains on wind energy, meeting a goal to transition to 100 percent renewable energy.


Dutch train companies, especially industry leader NS, worked with power company Eneco to get the train systems on wind power. This makes NS the world’s first rail company that gets its energy 100% from wind power.

NS annually consumes 1.2 billion kWh of wind electricity, reportedly equivalent to the amount all households in Amsterdam consume each year. The 100 per cent wind energy-powered trains transport 600,000 passengers and three strokes of an Eneco (dutch energy company) wind turbine drives a railway train one kilometre. That means 1,200,000 train trips per day without CO2 emissions.

One hour of an operational windmill provides enough energy for a train to cross 200 km, and three rotations of a wind turbine enables a train to travel 1 km.

One of the weirdest places on earth has to be the Japanese Cat Island. A short ferry ride from Japan’s east coast, Tashirojima has a population of one hundred humans and 140 cats…. which roam around napping, playing, and snagging snacks from residents and tourists. They outnumber humans. Originally the cats were encouraged since the island produced silk, and mice are a natural predator of silkworms. Local fishermen regarded them as good luck. The island even has a cat shrine, along with newly built cat shaped cabins for tourists to stay in. It goes without saying that there are no dogs allowed. And Guess what… it appears this is not the only cat island in Japan!
