Fascinating (4)

Hello, and Happy Friday to Y’all!

Thanks so much for joining me for the 5th ‘Fascinating Friday!’ Last week we had a look at 5 Sites on Earth that Will Leave you Breathless! We travelled to the Netherlands, Wyoming, Vietnam, Madagascar, and Nevada!

This week, though, we are looking at 5 unusual and incredible structures!! Today we travel to Ohio, Missouri, Florida, Belgium, and Mexico! I had a lot of fun making this post for you, so I hope you enjoy!

Here we go!ย ๐Ÿš€


#1 The Basket Building, Ohio

    Woah! What a cool post!

    I would totally visit the Kansas City Public Library (books are the best, and a library that looks like books??!! Way awesome.) and the WonderWorks… because who wouldn’t want to walk into an upside-down building that looks like it will fall on you? lol ๐Ÿ˜› jk But seriously, I LOVE laser tag!!!

    The library! And I thought MINE was cool, haha. Hey, Brad! I just wanted to say that your blog is awesome, and that I can’t wait to see more of your posts. By the way, I think it’s so cool that you’re into Real Estate-I think it’s super interesting, but every time I try to talk about it, people’s eyes just glaze over…it’s nice to meet someone else who’s into it!
