Everywhere around you . .
. . . there are fortunes to be found. Some of them come from natural sources like gold,
truffles or rare plants. Others come from man-made items long ago lost, or
buried and forgotten about.
While luck obviously plays a large part in finding a fortune, it is also important to keep your eyes open and your wits about you.
Much treasure has been discovered because someone had an instinct about an item or the place
where it was to be found.

can't win. So you have to actively look for the fortune, or at least learn to recognise it when you come

in the late nineteen-nineties.

proved to be worth a fortune.
Hopefully they will inspire you to look for your own fortune, whether large or small, and to
take pleasure in doing so.
