The Top Secret Military Bases And Mysterious Government Bunkers

     For generations, people all around the world have been suspicious of their government, regardless of their style or affiliations. This is because, even in the most democratic of countries, they are still keeping so many secrets from us! The governments of the world have been hiding their most secretive bases right in our backyards, and it is time the people were aware. And you might be surprised to learn that most of the nuclear weapons and ammunition are hidden close to schools, homes, and businesses.

 

     I don’t know about you, but that makes me pretty angry! They shouldn’t be putting their own citizens in this kind of danger. And at the very least they shouldn’t be keeping all of this information from us. We deserve to know! It’s time the rest of the world is made aware of these secret locations. Thankfully, we recently learned the secret location of many of the bases. It took a lot of work and we had to pull some strings, but we even got photos of all of them. So let’s take a look at the most top secret and secluded military and government bases hidden around the globe.

Do You Want In On A $1 Italian Dream House?

Don’t let your eyes fool you. Some Italian villages are selling homes for $1!

Published

on





“Honey, pack up your things, we’re moving to Italy!” Two villages in Italy are offering homes at little more than one American dollar to lure new residents to their towns in the hopes of offsetting their declining populations. They’ve even launched websites to best match potential home buyers with their “dream” property. Amazingly, potential suitors are even able to apply to purchase one of these homes even before setting foot in the country.

Paolo Caruso, the mayor of Zungoli, one of the villages offering this insane deal has stated “I’ve created a special task force of young volunteers who assist buyers, leasing with convenient construction firms on the restyle… Transparency is key but people must really come see for themselves the beauty of the place, taste the great good and breathe the fresh healthy air.”

Simplicity

The best part about this home-buying process… it’s super easy to get started! Even if you’re not interested, it might be fun to explore the numerous offers. To start, head over to the city of Zungoli’s official website – www.comunezungoli.it – on the left column, look for a bright link entitled “Case in vendetta a E(Euro)1”. Once you open the link, you will be greeted with a list of 50 – 100-meter homes available. They all require some renovation and restyling, which is demanded in the $1 agreement, but this cost is largely tax deductible. From there, download the application form for the properties you could imagine yourself moving into. It’s at this portion of the application at which you must decide if your home will ultimately turn into a private house, bread & breakfast, or artisan shop. Heads up, you must renovate your property, if chosen, within three years. Next, simply attach a copy of your ID and send all accompanying documents to the mayor’s office – email or normal postage is requested. Lastly, when all applicants have been picked, Caruso will send you an official contract regarding the property. This step requires you to actually fly to Italy and close the deal in person.

The fine print does require a 2,000 Euro security deposit and agreement to refurbish the property, but once the property is properly taken care of, the deposit is returned.

A Second Opportunity

There is also another larger town, Mussomeli, in Sicily, which has made this 5 step process even easier. They invested in a new, multilingual real estate agency to handle their own version of these 1 Euro deals.

As above, Mussomeli homes can be seen at www.case1euro.it. Even better, this site is in English. Take a second to look around and view the homes with tremendous potential.

Mussomeli Heritage councilor Toti Nigrelli has stated “Original owners calls us each day to dispose of their old houses. There are 100 on sale now and potentially another 400 are suitable… This project is my life mission but had I dealt with it on my own, I would have gone nuts.”

Clearly, this opportunity is an important call of the mayors and people of Zungoli and Mussomeli. The $1 is much more a once-in-a-lifetime purchase, it’s an investment into their towns for years and decades to come.

Tasting 3 Of The World’s Favorite Desserts

Even though we all have a favorite dessert (or several), it’s possible that another sweetheart is out there waiting for you.

Published

on





     Blame it on your grandmother’s amazing baking skills, those wonderful celebration & holiday treats, or flat-out genetic preferences, all dessert is deeply personal and engraved into our hearts. Still, there’s a great wide world full of tastes that have never come close to your tongue. Ignorance may be bliss, but there will always be a part of your personal dessert history that will make you wonder “What if?”. Yes, some of your past choices will always be with you, but as you try new flavors in new places, some of those older “favorites” will make you realize they really weren’t that special after all. To phrase this another way, there are a ton, a plethora, a variety, of new desserts that you are just waiting to try. The problem is… you don’t know what (and where) they are. Therefore, we wanted to take you on an incredibly quick trip around the world in which you can “sample” some of the desserts you would have otherwise never been introduced.

 

Alfajores, South America

To be fair, it’s very possible that you’ve seen these cookies before – they’re found all over South America, from Argentina to Peru. The ends are made of crumbly shortbread cookies that hold a delectable layer of dulce de leche – a similar type of caramel candy made by simmering sweetened milk. Additional versions are available as these cookies are highly customizable. They may be covered in dark chocolate, drizzled with white, rolled in a variety of nuts (including coconut), or simply elevated through the use of spices.

 

Borma, Middle East & Turkey

If you’ve had baklava before, then you should roughly understand the flavor profile of the Borma. These treats are produced by rolling threads of golden knafeh – a type of pasty dough – around a sweet, nutty pistachio, pine nut, or walnut center. However, unlike baklava, these are deep-fried leading to a nice crispy bite. Bakery owners surely tempt tourists and locals alike as they pile these tasty deep-fried sticks high in store windows. 

 

Gulab Jamun, India

Having been lucky enough to sample a few of these from an Indian bakery here in my hometown, I can assure that these gulab jamun are absolutely delicious (and relatively light!). Each of these balls starts as a scoop of khoya – a reduced cow or buffalo milk mixture that is simmered for hours over a very light flame. Then, this melting substance is fried in ghee – clarified butter. This frying adds additional flavor to the “milk” before it is soaked in aromatic syrup. Roses and cardamom seeds often flavor this sweet treat. 

 

The opportunities to try these treats are relatively easy to come by. To be honest, the next time you’re in a culturally-rich neighborhood, just stop by the bakery! You’ll obviously enjoy looking at all the new foods and treats but being able to sample something new is the absolute best.

Staying In Rome Like The Romans

We’ve compiled all the best neighborhoods into one convenient list so you can do Rome your way and have a great Italian vacation. 

Published

Rome is home to some of the most recognizable historical monuments in the history of the world. You’ll see the Colosseum, the Piazza Navona, and the Trevi Fountain. All of these remarkable landmarks are favorites of tourists around the globe, so when many decide to find a place to stay, they decide that the closer to these magnificent wonders, the better. Well, if you want out of these tourist trap areas and want to see the real Rome for yourself then this is the article for you.

We chatted with our colleagues about Rome and they dropped all of the knowledge on their favorite neighborhoods they’ve ever spent time in while visiting this magnificent city. We’ve compiled all the best neighborhoods into one convenient list so you can find the type of Rome you want to base your vacation on. 

MONTI

Stay at Monti if you want to be close to the Colosseum without feeling like you’re just stuck amongst tourists. Monti is a fun neighborhood filled with Rome’s artsy types, so expect to find a bunch of funky shops and cafes. You will also find plenty of delicious pizza pies and after you chow down on one of those you can drink wine in a small little wine bar that is a surefire way to delight any wine drinkers taste buds. Hanging out in Monti will definitely make you feel like one of Rome’s cool kids.

PIGNETO

Pigneto used to be a bit rough, but it is now becoming the hippest part of Rome. People used to think of this neighborhood as working class, but now if you ask around you will hear the word “hipster” more than “working.” Come here if you are a fan of street art, as the slim streets are filled with beautiful pieces done by some of Italy’s finest street artists. There are also plenty of funky restaurants and delightful bars that make staying in this neighborhood super fun.

SAN LORENZO

San Lorenzo is where the college students hang. This neighborhood is right next to the University of La Sapienza, this neighborhood is very hip and has rich, young energy. There is a pretty wild history in this place, seeing as San Lorenzo was heavily bombed during World War 2, so it may not have as old of a world charm as the rest of Rome, but it still offers plenty of hip bars, restaurants, and shops. This is also the place to go if you’re looking for a late-night hang, because of its abundance of clubs and cheap pizzerias. So if you’re looking to party with some hip, young Italians, this is the place for you.

TESTACCIO

If your main goal in Rome isn’t to see the sights but rather to eat, then look no further than Testaccio. The Romans recently redid the city’s old slaughterhouse and once that happened the neighborhood exploded. Expect to see a bunch of trattorias and produce vendors around here. Then, definitely check out the slaughterhouse which now houses an amazing contemporary art museum in
