'I'm happy to report that my inner child is still ageless.' - James Broughton. Hotel Belvédère, a hotel in the Furka Pass of the Swiss Alps, was once the perfect spot for travelers looking to explore the Rhône Glacier. But as the glacier receded, so did its number of visitors. Since the end of the 19th century, when the Furka Pass road was built, tourists have flocked to the hotel for its panoramic views over the icy landscape. The glacier was once only a 600-foot walk from the hotel and a 300-foot long grotto carved into the glacier allowed guests to journey inside. Sadly, the Rhône Glacier has lost almost a full mile of coverage in the last 100 years or so. The 11,000-year-old glacier has been known to recede as much as 10 centimeters in a day, and consistently loses about 130 feet a year. The grotto, which dates back to as early as 1894, can no longer be securely carved into the dwindling ice. Hotel Belvédère, which one hosted party-goers and adventurers, and even the likes of Pope John XXIII and Sean Connery, has seen better days. As the glacier moves farther away from the pass, fewer people visited. Though the hotel makes a brief appearance in Goldfinger, it is closed indefinitely. Drivers still stop to take pictures of the building and its mountainous backdrop. The building now sits with its doors and windows boarded up, a testament to the passage of time and climate change.

No siempre la mejor foto tiene que representar un lugar icónico en mi vida. Dublin es una de las ciudades que jamás me imaginé conocer, su historia esta muy ligada a los celtas, vikingos, duendes y por supuesto cerveza por esas razones la ciudad me atrajo mucho. Caminar por sus suburbios de noche y tomar cerveza en sus pubs, sentí como si me encontrara en una película de hooligans. Dublin sin duda lo considero mi sexto lugar favorito que me ha tocado conocer. La sensación de estar ahí fue adrenalina. La foto muestra una calle por donde no transita mucho turismo en Dublin 🇮🇪🍀 #hotelbelvedere #street #streetstyle #streetphotography #city #cityscape #cityphotography #urbanstyle #urban #urbanphotography #eire #dublin #dublinstagram #dublino #ireland #ir #bluesky #traficlight #shadow #ue #eu #euro #europe #europa #ireland_gram #irelandaily #ie #irlanda #instagram #beautifuldestinations
