Wonders of the World

The NEW Seven Wonders of the Modern World are the Taj Mahal in India, Petra in Jordan, The Great Wall of China, Machu Picchu in Peru, Chichen Itza in Mexico, Christ the Redeemer in Rio, Brazil and the Colosseum in Rome, Italy.  So far I've seen SIX of the Seven.  The only one left is the Taj Majal in India. I honestly have no desire to go to India.  People who've been have all loved it, but, everyone I ever knew that went got some kind of stomach problems.  Take imodium!  I still have no desire to go, but, who knows. Maybe one day.  
The ones that I have seen are AMAZING.  Petra is awesome (especially for us Indiana Jones fans).  The Great Wall is great :-) I actually had no desire to go to China, either, but, it was surprising and fantastic on an immense scale. I took a tour with Viking Cruises and they were great. Every hotel, every restaurant, the cruise down the Yangtze river was awesome. Altogether a great trip. China is a must.  Machu Picchu is mystical and beautiful. I took a six hour hike up to it rather than the bus ride and when you come up over the mountain and get that view looking down on the site it takes your breath away (not to mention the altitude).  Llamas along the route are so beautiful.  Another must see in the world.  Chichen Itza outside of Cancun is a great day tour. Christ the Redeemer statue in Rio is awe inspiring, looking over the beautiful beach area.  And, of course, the Colosseum in Rome is amazing. Italy is amazing. One of my favorite countries.  I never get tired of visiting (though last year when I went it was over 100' and it hurt).
It's not a small world, after all.  It's an amazing, diverse, spectacular world, and having the opportunity to see so much of it has been a lifelong pleasure.  If you're interested in visiting these wonders give me a jingle. Once there, any of these wonders will make you tingle :-)
