Kolmanskop is a ghost town in the Namib desert in southern Namibia, 10 kilometres inland from the port town of Lüderitz. It was named after a transport driver named Johnny Coleman who, during a sand storm, abandoned his ox wagon on a small incline opposite the settlement. Once a small but very rich mining village, it is now a popular tourist destination run by the joint firm NamDeb (Namibia-De Beers).
Kylemore Abbey, Co. Galway, Ireland - a magical mountainside place. Once a castle, now a Benedictine nunnery (founded in 1920), just off N59 in the northwestern Irish countryside (right near the entrance to Connemara National Park).
