Wicked Wednesday 03

Yep, its Wicked Wednesday again, Ok so I am a 'Maina'! Annnd here we go~
 
   Mhmm, this week is about the coolest bridges out there! So yeah, there are a million types of bridges, and obviously they are one of human kind's oldest architectural triumphs; but today I am not (ok so yes I am too busy and left this post till last minute!) going to get into all of that. Just gonna comment on a few of the wickedest and 'awesom-est' bridges))

  First, -I know I know its boring!- but first I have to put the Akashi Kaikyo bridge up here, for the obvious reason that it has the longest central span of any bridge in the world! In total it has a central span of 1,991 meters! Wow. The cool thing about this bridge is the modern pendulum system which uses the resonance frequency of the bridge to work as a shock absorber.
    Completed in 1773, the Pultney Bridge of Bath, England is the coolest! Only four bridges in the world have shops that go full length on both sides, and this is one of them! Plus I just loooooove eighteenth century arcitecture.

  I imagine that most of you already know the Puente del Alamillo Bridge in Seville, Spain. But hey, its pretty great! Especially at night.


  And that's it for this Wednesday, again I think I am going to have to do a sequel to this post, because I soooo love bridges and there are so many amazing ones out there that I think somebody could just start a blog about bridges and have their life work cut out for them. Have a great week, don't worry you still have half of it left~~

  2. sweetness!! bridges are awesome. A few of my favs out of the ones I've been on like everywhere are the Confederation Bridge (to PEI) - that's one's pretty cool 'cause it's long to be up so high, and the 20+ mile causeway in LA. And the Mackinac bridge in MI, not because it's remarkable, just like the view and seeing the lakes that meet.
