Google Maps allows us to travel the world discovering streets, landscapes, and incredible locations, but it also takes place for sites with very creepy and depressing names that make us sad just by reading them (and it makes us laugh a lot too).
An Instagram account is dedicated to search and publish the saddest places you can find in Google Maps and that makes us think that those who baptized them were really going through a bad time in their lives, or had some personal problem against that site or its inhabitants.
Divorce Beach, Cabo San Lucas, Mexico #divorce
Cabo San Lucas is one of the most touristic places in Mexico and there are many couples who enjoy their beaches on their honeymoon, but we recommend avoiding the so-called Divorce beach if they want to live happily ever after.
Shades of Death Rd.
Shades of Death Road, New Jersey U.S #shadesofdeath
There are many dangerous streets in the world, nothing is creepier than traveling through Shades of Death Rd. This rural road located in New Jersey, United States, is full of many popular legends, from tragic to funny, behind its name.
Calamity Lake, Crystal Bay, U.S #calamity
Would you dare to bathe in the lake of calamities? With that name, it would seem that only getting your feet wet calls for misfortune. This unfortunate water source is located in Nevada, United States.
Island of Tears
Island of Tears, Minsk, Belarus #tears
We can mourn both sadness and happiness, but the Island of Tears, located in Belarus, responds to a truly sad event. There is a memorial dedicated to the Soviet soldiers who died in Afghanistan between 1979 and 1989.
Depressed Lake, California U.S #depressed
There are sad times in life that leave us depressed and in need of help, but from there to baptize a lake as depressed requires a mental state so negative and painful, that surely led someone to put that name to this lake located in California, U.S.
Suffering Street, Menzel Jemil, Tunisia #suffering
If you are going to move to Tunisia, you must be careful with where you choose to live, since buying or renting a house on Suffering Street is not exactly a good way to start a new life that we hope will be happy.
And the list does not end. Worthless Rd, All Alone Rd, Sorrow Islands, and Murders Kill Rd, are some more examples of somewhat unusual places identified thanks to Google Maps and the account of Instagram Sadtopographies, which delves into this Google service to surprise us with the most unexpected names for baptizing a site.
