W - See Wonders of the World

Did you know that there were seven wonders of the ancient world and now that they only one exists, there are seven wonders of the modern world? I have been lucky enough to see one of the new ones.

Ancient World Wonders

Pyramids of Egypt
Hanging Gardens of Babylon
Statue of Zeus at Olympia
Temple of Diana at Ephesus
Mausoleum at Halicarnassus
Colussus at Rhodes
Pharos at Alexandria

Current World Wonders

Great Wall of China

Last summer I went to China and climbed the wall. That was smog in the pictures (Beijing was horrible when I was there).

Colosseum in Rome
Petra, Jordan
Machu Pichu, Peru
Chichen Itza, Mexico
Taj Mahal, India
Christ the Redeemer Statue, Brazil

So have you ever seen a wonder of the world?


  1. Cool you got to see one of the modern wonders of the world! Ick on the smog though!

    Nope, haven't seen any of the current world wonders and probably won't either other than in pictures :)


  2. Every time I hear of the Great Wall of China, I get sad, thinking about the history behind it and brutal emperors.

    We're branching into "world travelers" when the kids are older, like moved out.

    True Heroes from A to Z

  3. So cool that you traveled to China. It took until my last year there before I could get people to visit me. The history is amazing and the Great Wall was impressive.
    Crystal, researching the history before I visited kind of added to the experience. I imagine not many people understand the history of how these things were created and the conditions people were in when they where built.

  4. I saw the Grand Canyon isn't that considered to be a wonder?
    I would love to see pyramids.
    Good luck with xy and z.

  5. Stopping by as the #Challenge draws to a close. I've loved it, hope you have too. Hard work but worth it, right?
