6 Famous World Heritage Sites Digitally Reconstructed To Show How They Looked Back In The Day

Currently, there are 1,121 properties on UNESCO’s World Heritage List, 53 of which are listed as “in danger”. There are multiple reasons why these historic sites are endangered, with armed conflict and war, earthquakes, natural disasters, pollution, poaching, uncontrolled urbanization and unchecked tourist development being just a few. Sadly, if strict measures aren’t taken, this could mean that these historic relics will one day be completely destroyed and we’ll never be able to enjoy them again.

22 People Share Their Funniest “Quarantine Travel” Pics

It looks like the quarantine won’t be lifted anytime soon and it will probably take months until we’ll be able to travel like before. However, the quarantine doesn’t seem to stop some travel-hungry people from coming up with creative ways of traveling from the comfort of their homes.

Just recently, Lithuanian journalist Liudas Dapkus and his colleague Gabrielė Štaraitė came up with a funny “quarantine travel” challenge. They encouraged people to recreate their travel photos using the things they found in their homes and received some hilarious results – check them out in the gallery below!

In an interview with Bored Panda, Liudas said that the quarantine messed up his 2020 travel plans and he even had to cancel his family trip to Turkey. “I’m not sure if we’ll be going to Portugal for Midsummer’s Day where they have a peculiar tradition to celebrate the day by hitting people on the head with inflatable hammers in the streets,” joked the journalist. “Our trips to Canada, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, and Panama won’t happen, either. We also planned to visit Mauritius and Reunion Island in November. Other than that, not much else has changed.”

Like most of us, Liudas is trying to keep himself occupied during the quarantine. He says he’s giving out interviews, going on TV shows and is even currently working on a new project which he says will be “important for Lithuania after this entire story is over and done with.” The journalist is also planning to release a new book this year and says he has already figured out the plot and even has time to put words on paper.

Liudas is an avid traveler and has visited over 70 countries around the world. Earlier this year, the man published a book about his adventures titled Žuvis, kuri supainiojo duris (The Fish That Fooled The Door).

“When we go on a trip, we’re determined to suffer so that we can become enlightened,” said Liudas. “We wander about to find some sort of meaning in our daily lives.”

One day, this guy just kind of figured – “I spend most of my time on the internet anyway, why not turn it into a profession?” – and he did! Now he not only gets to browse the latest cat videos and fresh memes every day but also shares them with people all over the world, making sure they stay up to date with everything that’s trending on the web. Some things that always pique his interest are old technologies, literature and all sorts of odd vintage goodness. So if you find something that’s too bizarre not to share, make sure to hit him up!

Mister Global Contestants Dress Up In Their National Costumes And End Up Looking Like Bosses In A Fighting Game

Mister Global is an annual male beauty pageant held in Thailand since 2014. This year’s competition attracted 38 contestants from all over the world and on the 26th of September, the winner has finally been announced.

The theme of this year’s competition was called “Inspiring Gentleman” and in an interview with Bored Panda, Mister Global spokesperson Kitti Kamjunsa explained the meaning behind the title of the theme. “The aim of Mister Global is to promote environmental awareness, and we have been promoting this cause ever since we started in 2014. This year, we added a new motto “Inspiring Gentleman” because we believe that the contestants and titleholders should motivate and inspire people,” said Kitti. Also, a successful fundraiser to support an elephant care organization in Thailand was held during this year’s pageant.

According to the spokesperson, Mister Global is a part of the Top 5 Grand Slam Male Pageants. “We have good quality contestants and great support from our national directors from around the world. We have also garnered much support from our many fans that follow us on our website and official page,” said Kitti. “Most importantly, we are true on our advocacy on Environmental Awareness and charity cause.”

“For us, we are really surprised that it went viral around the world and we welcome many positive comments. However, this segment is nothing new in any pageant system as it has always been a part of it. The winning costume is not about the size or design but the story and culture behind it,” commented Kitti on the National outfits idea.
