Get your shovel! (5 still hidden treasures)
Everyone loves a good treasure hunt, right? It’s the thrill of the chase and the fortune that can be had at the end. And who couldn’t use a few extra bucks in this economy? There are many stories of people who have dedicated their life to find treasure, only to go broke and never find that proverbial (or, in this case, actual) pot of gold. Even if they find the treasure, there will likely be a lengthy battle over who owns it. A few years ago an expedition found a treasure in a sunken ship worth as much as $500 million. It didn’t take long for Spain to put in a claim on it because they said the treasure had initially been stolen from their country.
So even if you find it, there’s no guarantee that you will keep it and reap the rewards. But as I said before, it’s all in the trill of the chase. Or so they say. Well, if you have any inkling about going out and finding treasure of your own, these may be a few good places to start.
