Aspen Evans's curator insight, December 11, 2014 7:45 AM

Addicts would benefit from seeing this article because it could show them another way of handling their addiction and putting and end to it.

34 Lost Cities Forgotten by Time | Touropia

34 Lost Cities Forgotten by Time | Touropia | Strange days indeed... | Scoop.it
F. Thunus's insight:

It’s hard to imagine how an entire city can get lost but that’s exactly what has happened to the lost cities on this list. There are actually many reasons why a city has to be abandoned. War, natural disasters, climate change and the loss of important trading partners to name a few. Whatever the cause, these lost cities were forgotten in time until they were rediscovered centuries later.
