Three things to do before you leave the planet! 1 Visit Tuvalu Tuvalu in the Pacific Ocean is the fourth- smallest country in the world. Sadly, its also only 4 metres above sea level at its highest. Because of the rise in sea levels, Tuvalu might be the first country to disappear under the waves. The islands are a paradise of beautiful tropical beaches and palm trees. Why dont you go there before they disappear? Take a plane from Fiji, stay in one of Tuvalus four guest houses and have a drink in its one bar. Go now, before it dies. 2 See the worlds largest flower Go to the jungles of Borneo or Sumatra and find the worlds strangest plants, Rafflesia. For most of its life, the plant is invisible and hard to find. But to find it is amazing. It grows into the worlds largest flower. It can be one metre across and weigh 10 kilos. And it smells terrible! However, it only lasts a few days. Youll be lucky to see one. 3 Find happiness Why do some people live perfectly happy lives while others find life hard? The answer might be in our genes some people are born happy. Lucky them, I hear you say! Dont worry, theres still a lot you can do, for example: help other people, make lots of friends or change your job. Or learn about how people live in Denmark. Its the only European country where people are happier than they were 30 years ago. Why? Go and find out!
