As of 2022, the official list of the seven natural wonders of the world were as follows, the Great Barrier Reef, Mount Everest, Parícutin, Mexico, the Aurora Borealis (AKA the northern lights), the Harbor of Rio de Janeiro, the Grand Canyon and Victoria Falls.
Then you have the man made wonders of the world: The Colosseum in Italy, Petra in Jordan, Chichén Itzá in Mexico, Christ the Redeemer in Brazil, Machu Picchu in Peru, the Taj Mahal in India and The Great Wall of China.
Oh, and the ancient wonders of the world; the Pyramids of Giza, the Hanging Gardens of Babylon, the Temple of Artemis in Turkey, the Statue of Zeus, the Mausoleum at Halicarnassus, the Colossus of Rhodes and the lighthouse of Alexandria.
These are just the official lists and I can think of a good few more, can you? What about the Amazon River, Ha Long Bay, Iguazu Falls, Komodo Island, Table Mountain, Angkor Wat, Moraine Lake Canada, The Dead Sea, the Galapagos Islands, Giants’ Causeway, Yellowstone National Park, the Sahara Desert? The list goes on…….
“I haven’t been everywhere, but it’s on my list.” – Susan Sontag
How many of these have you seen? Are you ticking them off? We at Charitable Travel can help you see the world, either on a private tour or in a small luxury group. There are lots of advantages to booking through us as we work with great local tour operators and private guides. They can help you avoid the crowds by taking you to busy areas at quieter times. For example, I saw the wonderful ruins at Siem Reep and even the Taj Mahal during quieter times and had these iconic places almost to myself. This makes for a much superior experience.
Think you’ve seen the world? There is never enough time to see it all! Better get started!
