Glass Beach, Fort Bragg – California
Beach gets its name from the smooth colorful glass pieces that you can find in the pebbly beach. Its origins date back to the early part of the twentieth century, when the nearby city of Fort Bragg used the spot as its municipal landfill. For decades, tons of trash were dumped into the ocean, or burned at the shoreline, until ‘The Dump’ was closed in 1967. Over the years, the glass bottles were smashed to pieces, then worn into colorful clear beads that mixed in with the course sand and gravel at the beach.
Meteora is a climbing and hiking paradise. Of course, there is a paved road leading from Kalambaka to the monasteries, but be adventurous – take one of the hidden trails (but make sure to have a good map and, of course, good walking shoes) and wander into the wild. Use caution and make sure you are up for it as rock climbing in Meteora is not for the faint of heart.

Machu Picchu, Peru
Completed in 1450 as a majestic estate for the Inca Emperor Pachacuti, the site was abandoned a little more than a century later, as a result of the Spanish conquest of the region.The site itself is situated nearly 8,000 feet above sea level on a stunning mountain ridge overlooking the Sacred Valley in the Cuzco Region of Peru. Although it was created more than 500 years ago, the outside world had no knowledge of this incredible archaeological site until the early 20th century, which is why Machu Picchu is often known as “The Lost City of the Incas”. The three major structures of the site are the Temple of the Sun, the Inti Watana, and the Room of the Three Windows.
