We here at Matouring are all about the adventure, the experience, the memories – and, most of all, the unusual. “Why be normal?” is our motto, and we stand by that. As we say again and again, adventure is found almost anywhere – sometimes when you least expect it.
And, going one step further, art is everywhere, if you take the time to look. But what defines art? To each their own is our mantra. But, you might think we’ve gone off the edge in this post, as we’re focusing on sewage, or at least a specific sewage plant. PS: Did you know that each year, 380 billion m3 of municipal wastewater are generated globally? Wastewater production is expected to increase by 24% by 2030 and 51% by 2052. Riveting, I know. The warning bells have been ringing for years. But we digress.
Even though most municipal edifices tend to be somber, grey concrete eyesores, some places in the world spend the time, energy and money to brighten things up and make a statement. And who but The Tim Traveler would be best suited to enlighten us as we lighten ourselves, if you know what we mean. Behold Crossness: The World’s Most Beautiful Sewage Plant.
