This bridge is a few centuries old and it stretches over the Aoos river, hanging from the bridge is a bell, that indicates if it’s safe tocrossor not, cause during the winter the river banks are full and if the wind is strong enough to ring the bell, it’s not safe for passers.
The Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge (Ireland)
This bridge is actually a rope suspension near Ballintoy smewhere in Northern Ireland. Crossing the bridge when it’s windy is probably one of the most terrifying experience a person can have.
