A Woman Went to Europe and Recreated Some of Her Mother's Old Pictures

When Lydia Coutré took a trip to study abroad in Italy she took along some digital versions of her mom's old vacation slides. She matched up locations and camera shots to recreate the same photos her mother took 30 years ago. Now she's got side by side snapshots of how things have changed since then.

Talk about a bird’s eye view.

Darshan the white-tailed eagle made history on Saturday breaking the world record for the highest bird flight off a man-made structure.

A group called the Freedom Conservation strapped a Sony ActionCam Mini him and captured his 2,722-foot descent off the Burj Khalifa in Dubai to help raise awareness about the endangered species.

The charity works in partnership with both SOS (Save our Species) and UNESCO, and the stunt was also broadcast live on BBC News.

“I’m really proud of the bird,” his trainer, Jacques-Olivier Travers told Khaleej Times. “Today was really perfect. I really think that anyone who saw these shots will never think of eagles again in the same way.”

This wasn’t the first time Darshan has soared off a tall building. He’s also flown from the Eiffel Tower in Paris and St Paul’s Cathedral in London.

After her husband Gordon Scott's passing, Beverly Smith threw her husband's ashes into the Florida Keys with a note and some spare change - money to let the bottle recipient call Smith and inform her of her husband's new locale. Scott, a lifetime lover of travel and adventure, would get one more chance to go across the world. Since then, Scott has traveled up and down the Florida coast, floating from beach to beach.
