20 Before-And-After Pics Showing How Famous Cities Changed Over Time

The world is advancing at a rapid pace, it is changing every minute, although sometimes it’s hard to notice it. As we grow older, our surroundings change but we rarely notice the changes happening within. While we compare pictures of cities from today and years before, we start to see how big of a change has taken place.

The oldest continuously inhabited city in the world has existed for 11,000 years as of today. The town, Damascus, is the Syrian capital city, and surprisingly not much has changed behind this ancient city’s walls.

We can say that some of the world’s most famous cities have changed extremely over the decades.

If you’re looking to calm your mind, nature is the place to go. Nothing soothes your soul more than when you surround yourself with the green fields and fresh air.

1. My uncle left me a map when he died, he played it up to seem like it was a map to his life’s riches barried as if they were treasure, turns out it was just a map to his favorite campsite and his idea of a joke is the real treasure being friendship; what a cheap basted.

2. Excuse me while I toot my own horn. Single mom here. For my daughter’s 12 birthday, got her a dog and took her camping and fishing. Not something I’ve ever done alone. I think her dad would have been proud.

4. I’m 32. And last night I took myself and my dog on my first ever camping trip. I left later than I wanted; setup took 2.5 hours; probably overpacked; dog and I slept poorly; exhausted. Worth it.
