Strangest Houses Around the World

Strangest houses can be called a man’s castle and hence he may do with it what he will, but some people turn their normal homes into the strangest of houses. These houses could not be further from a normal suburban house with a white picket fence. The builders of these strange houses were inspired to go above and beyond the normal qualities of a house. They have created some truly beautiful dwellings that double as works of art.

Below is a list of 5 of the strangest houses around the world for you to enjoy looking at and imagine living in them. You never know, maybe looking at strangest houses is what you need to have an idea for what your next house should look like.

Lenovo Vibe Z Review

The Lenovo Vibe Z K910 is a smartphone from Chinese electronics giant Lenovo. The phone was released in late 2013 and currently lists for around $549.99 (or 2000 Aed in Dubai). It weighs 145.2 grams, or about 5 ounces, and is 149.1 mm (5.87 inches) in length, 77 mm (3.03 inches) in width, and 7.9 mm (0.31 inches) in height. Although it’s considered a BIG size phone, it uses 2 micro SIM cards.

That makes it still small enough to fit into a pocket easily, despite the fact that the previous elegant Lenovo Vibe X (reviewed earlier) line is smaller. Finally, the Lenovo Vibe Z runs on Android and it used to ship with Android OS, v4.3 (Jelly Bean), which can be easily upgradable to v4.4.2 (KitKat).

Lenovo S960 Vibe X, the latest mobile phone from Lenovo was sent to me for review. In the beginning, rest assured that I won’t write down a complicated technical review, rather I’ll just list all the things I liked, didn’t like, and those which I should mention in my review here.

If you want a quick review; Lenovo Vibe X S960 is a stylish mobile phone, looker, sleek, shiny, eye-catchy, light, not slow nor fast, with a battery that needs four hours to be fully charged, while 20 minutes of playing a single game brought down the power meter by 11%.

Top 10 Destinations To Visit By Car in Australia

Australia is such a vast land / country / continent, with so much long roads and vast empty areas between cities and towns to visit by car only. I never quite understood what some tourists that I met while traveling meant when they told me how they found Australia to be quite empty!

The distance, though, serves to make Australia a land that can be explored and adventured in, and for that you shall need a car, a rather good one also, as you roam the lands and beaches and greenery, which makes for car-travelers’ paradise. Below is a list of some of my favourite areas of this ancient land.
