Top 100 Wonders of the World I have seen/ been to Dec 03, 2010
I have travelled much by some measure and by others I still have the rest of the world glaring at me, calling my name and smilling at me as if to say "come on, I don't bite". Well I should love to see the top 100 wonders of the world before I kick the bucket, the details and preparations are always a challenge, the journey enriching and the destination breath taking. The world apparently has over one hundren thousand attractions, of those may have listed the ones they consider the best of the best. As I wrote my list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites I have visited, I notice most of them were on the list of what are considered the top 100 best of the best wonders and attractions of the world. I went to google and I found Hillman's top 100 wonders of the world and began my comparison to the others like Ozoux and Peterbe, they were very close yet a few variations existed.So far I have seen 5 of the top ten on Hilman's list and I think that is mighty good no?
