The Northern Lights
Also known as the Aurora Borealis, there is no human influence whatsoever in this sight. Instead, it is one of nature's true miracles, which we are lucky enough to get to witness. The best place to see the Northern Lights is within the Aurora Zone. One country within this zone is Greenland. This is a remote country populated by very few. Thanks to these low levels of population, this also means less pollution and more nature! As a result, you can see the Northern Lights in Greenland in all of the glory. The lights up above will be only enhanced by the stunning vistas and natural scenery below the skies. The best places to see the lights are areas not suffering from ‘light pollution’. However, as time goes on and the world keeps spinning, these places may become fewer. So, go and see the Northern Lights now, while you have choice of viewing spots and clarity on your side.

The Floating City of Venice
The romantic Italian city of Venice is easily one of the most unique sites in the whole earth. It consists of 124 clusters of islands, and it dates back to the 7th century. A whole city floats upon the water, complete with houses, shops and restaurants. You can hire a gondola to take in the city from the water, or just enjoy it on foot. Whichever method you choose, you’re sure to be totally enchanted by what you find. However, it is sadly not all good news. In the last century, Venice sank 23cms. Since then, authorities have been working hard to fix this issue. Now this isn’t the main problem… rising sea levels are. The water surrounding and below Venice was slowly rising for quite some time. In time, a combination of these two factors or just the one threatens to take Venice for good. For this reason, be sure to move seeing Venice from your Bucket List to your favourite memories list sooner rather than later. While we won’t lose in for many years yet, annual floods also cause chaos. So head to Italy, hire that Gondola and enjoy what may one day be a lost city.

The Amazon Rainforest

Many of us get to experience the sea, to see a mountain and to stroll on a beach in our lifetimes. However, far fewer people ever get to see a rainforest. That’s because in some parts of the world they are non-existent. And sadly, where they do stand, they are slowly being destroyed. The Amazon Rainforest is the largest tropical rainforest in the whole world, and is found in South America. While it is predominantly in Brazil, it also stretches out into places like Peru and Colombia. Inside this 5.5 million km2 area are around 30 million people and many millions of rare animals and plants. You might think that these stats alone would mean we were all doing our best to look after the rainforest. However, this is simply not the case. Deforestation is one of the several man-made factors that is destroying it. Visit and support causes to protect this from happening further, now.
