Earth is home to incredibly beautiful natural sites. But because of climate change and human carelessness, some of them are in danger of disappearing in the next 100 years — or even sooner. The ruins of the Incan Empire attract millions of tourists per year, far exceeding the limit of 2,500 visitors per day that was originally set by UNESCO and Peru. Many believe that this, along with natural landslides and erosion, could cause the ruins to collapse unless more regulations are put in place. Machu Picchu is a site one should see sooner rather than later.

The resort, known as Deplar Farms, is tucked away in Iceland's Troll Peninsula. The resort got it's name from its past life as a sheep farm. The property still includes the original, but now refurbished, 1,500-square-foot farmhouse, which serves as the front of the hotel. For four days and nights at Deplar Farms with heli-skiing, can cost $11,200 per person. The cost includes the room, transportation to and from the Akureyri airport, all meals, and alcohol. Last year, it was reported that 1.7 million people visited Iceland. In fact, the number of Americans alone who visited the country outnumbered Iceland's own population. Two million visitors are expected to visit Iceland by the end of 2017.

Millennials will go to extreme lengths to live in cities instead of languishing in the suburbs. The qualities that are driving them to move to these highly desirable cities include the cost of living, accessibility of public transportation, and employment opportunities. Cologne, Germany was ranked as one of the many cities where individuals under 30 want to live right now. Additional factors considered for the move included internet speed, gender equality, the affordability of beer, and the number of Apple stores per capita.

It may not have the most millionaires, but nowhere else in the world is it more common to be a millionaire than in Switzerland. 716,000 Swiss people are millionaires — that’s nearly 12% of the adults in the country or one out of every 8.6.
Although it remains a marker of immense wealth, minting a million-dollar fortune isn’t the remarkable feat it used to be. In fact, nearly 33 million people across the globe now lay claim to fortunes in excess of $1 million. 📷:Shutterstock/ Boris Stroujko
