Toilets aren’t just necessary for tourists and passers-by – they may also be important symbols, with a story to tell about a country or a certain place. At least they’re the starting point for Lonely Planet’s new book, Toilets: A Spotter’s Guide.
The premise of the book is simple: They’ve scouted the nicest toilets on earth and hired brilliant photographers to immortalize them. Among their picks is this outhouse next to the Huldefossen waterfall, near Førde in Norway.
We don’t have Lonely Planet’s picture (you can see it here), but there are plenty of photographs of the toilet on Instagram. Like this one, captured by @hege.oedegard:
The outhouse itself is perhaps rather simple, compared to many of the other toilets in the book.
But you’ll be hard pressed to find a match for those surroundings, as Lonely Planet too seems aware: “No need to run the tap while perching on this picturesque potty next to the cacophonous Huldefossen Waterfall near Førde in Norway; the sound of thousands of gallons of water rushing over the 90m (295ft) drop should drown out any unwanted acoustics. Norway boasts nine of the world’s 20 highest waterfalls.”
By the way, just recently another Norwegian toilet was named the finest in all the world (we obviously have a knack for this …).
