Hey, nerds? Sorry for calling you out in that last entry. This one, though, will have you champing at the bit: Ta Prohm, an overgrown Buddhist monastery dating back to the 1100s, was used in Tomb Raider, which means that Angelina Jolie and Daniel Craig were there once! These picturesque ruins -- a part of the large area that was once the Khmer capital of Angkor -- have been overrun by strangler fig trees, making for some of the most dramatic photography ever to be featured on your friend’s Facebook timeline with the caption “NATURE ALWAYS WINS.”
