Ruins are definitely one of the most amazing things to see when you go travelling which is kind of a strange thing when you (over)think about it. In what other situation, would an old derelict building become an object of desire?

Of course, ruins are special due to the history encased in them. They are proof of civilisations from 100s even 1,000s of years ago and are quite frankly, really impressive – especially considering how they’re still standing!

More importantly though, these ruins truly help open your eyes to the potential that people all over the world have for greatness – some of these amazing structures were built long before all the machinery, transport and communication tools that we have now and can still inspire awe by just looking at photos of them. Now, imagine if you could take it one step further and go to visit these ruins in person…
