The Giants Causeway was given UNESCO heritage listing in 1986, and is the only UNESCO heritage site in Northern Ireland. The unique natural phenomenon is assumed to have been created 50-60million years ago, as a result of volcanic activity in the area. There are over 40,000 columns in total, all hexagonal in shape, and locking together like a jigsaw.
At a quick glance, you might miss the ancient cliff dwellings that blend effortlessly into the sheltered alcove of the canyon wall at Mesa Verde National Park in Colorado. These elaborate stone communities contained as many as 150 rooms, some of which still feature smoke-blackened walls and ceilings from fires that burned during cold winter months. The park protects nearly 5,000 archeological sites, inspiring visitors to imagine what life was like over 700 years ago. Photo courtesy of Chris Wheeler.
It’s over 1 am but I feel like I can’t go to sleep before I make a post about the incredible professor Hans Rosling who sadly left the world today.

Here’s a video of when Rosling talks about how to not be ignorant about the world:
