Yes, this beautiful world of ours and what mankind has done to improve it.

Not all that mankind has done is destroy the Earth and mistreat it, we have created great monuments and beautiful edifices and even delightful gardens.

Not all has been destruction and we need to encourage ourselves and each other for trying to improve the quality of our lives and fill it with beauty and honor.

And above all to feel gratitude for all that we have accomplished when we work in harmony with the Universe.

Kelimutu Volcano, Flores Island, Indonesia

If you're planning a tropical getaway to Indonesia, you can soak up creativity in the artist community of Ubud, go surfing on the beaches near Kuta, or visit the temples in Denpasar. While Indonesia is also home to one of the world's off-limits tourist attractions, you can use some of your time to take a day trip to Flores Island, home of the majestic Kelimutu Volcano. The volcano hasn't erupted since 1968, and it has three magnificent crater lakes at its summit. You may have seen crater lakes before, but Kelimutu stands out because its lakes glisten with colors that change regularly. Depending on when you visit, you might see a black, red, or brown lake. Alternatively, it might have multiple shades of blue, green, turquoise, and teal.

Kelimutu's crater lakes are not the only richly colored lakes in the world, but their colors aren't as easily explained, because they change so often. Many lakes get color from specific species of algae or bacteria. One possible explanation for Kelimutu's crater lakes is that the minerals in the water create different hues when they interact with volcanic gas. Fumaroles, volcanic vents releasing sulfur dioxide and other gases, may cause the waters to mix so mineral-rich water rises to the surface, resulting in stunning colors.

Fairy Circles, Namibia

The grasslands of Namibia's Namib desert are home to millions of little circles, which are patches of land without any vegetation growth. According to the BBC, Namibia's fairy circles lie in a honeycomb-like pattern and range in size from about five feet to 50 feet in diameter. The cause of the circles remains a controversial topic among scientists who study the circles. Scientists have presented two main theories to explain Namibia's fairy circles, but nothing has conclusively proven either of the theories.

First, some scientists claim that termites create the circles. Termite nests are located below the ground, and they clear vegetation around the nest. This process creates porous soil, which makes permanent reservoirs of rainwater below the surface to sustain the termite population. Scientists have observed the termite nests, but the explanation doesn't explain why the pattern of circles is irregular.

The second main theory scientists have rests on the notion of water competition among nearby plants. Plants create shade for those closest to them and maintain some water on the surface of the soil. But they strip water from plants further away by extracting water from the soil with their long roots. This water theory explains the circle patterns, but scientists have not tested the theory.

A third and far less prominent theory suggests that radioactive soil or toxins released from plants kill the vegetation around them. Regardless of the cause of the fairy circles, they are an extraordinary sight. If Namibia hasn't been on your radar as a destination for adventure travel in Southern Africa, consider a visit. In addition to checking out the fairy circles, you can surf in the Atlantic Ocean, view exotic and endemic wildlife, and explore German colonial architecture throughout one of Africa's hidden gems. Namibia is also home to one of the longest mountain ranges in the world

The Heat Anomaly in the Great Pyramid of Giza, Egypt

The Heat Anomaly in the Great Pyramid of Giza, Egypt

Egypt has long been a popular travel destination because of its distinct culture, location near the Nile River, and proximity to one of the Seven Wonders of the World: The Pyramids of Giza. The Great Pyramid of Giza is the only pyramid which remains intact, and it's the largest of the three pyramids which make up the Giza Pyramid Complex. In 2015, scientists conducted a series of thermal scans on the pyramids and found spots that were warmer than others. Researchers noted that a difference of 0.1 to 0.5 degrees Celsius difference between blocks of the pyramid is not abnormal or uncommon. But the anomaly they found in the Great Pyramid was that some spots were six degrees warmer than any surrounding bricks. Although Egyptologists and other scientists continue to study the heat differences, it remains unexplained.

Some theories researchers have floated to explain the cause of the heat anomaly in the Great Pyramid include a crack or cavity in the rock, a void below the surface of the warmer rocks, or internal air current. Others believe that the temperature differences may be due to a secret passage or a tomb behind the bricks.
