Are you watching the Sky1 series, An Idiot Abroad?

Travelling is very very good but there are things we must consider before we travel.

1. You must get an international passport.

2. you need a valid visa of the country you intend to visit.

3. you need a letter of invitation.

4. you need an air ticket.

5. you need book an hotel.

With these points in place i think you can travel to any where in the world.

Thanks

My point was that in An Idiot Abroad, broadcaster and somewhat internet celeb Karl Pilkington goes around the visiting the modern wonders of the world and gives an ''everyman'' look at why people would visit the places.

One of the Seven wonders of the world is The Statue of Zeus

The statue of Zeus strikes terror into the hearts of all who see it. It is the custom of the athletes, as well as their fathers, brothers and trainers, to swear an oath beside the statue. With their hands on slices of boar's meat, they promise to obey the rules of the Olympic Games.

You are aware that these are the wonders of the modern world. I would have loved it for Karl to visit the ancient world wonders aswell, but that would of course mean a time travel machine.

Did you know that there is going to be another series of An Idiot Abroad. Its going to be called The Bucket List, where Pilkington does the list of "things to do before you die". You may all be familiar with his ideas of swimming with dolphins.

Many or all of us know the 7 wonders of the ancient world but what are the 7 wonders of the modern world we live in now?

The 7 wonders of the modern world are, as of today:

    Channel Tunnel
    CN Tower
    Empire State Building
    Golden Gate Bridge
    Itaipu Dam

However, there is also a survey taken around the world voted a new "new" list of wonders based on popularity:

    Chichen Itza, Mexico - Mayan City
    Christ Redeemer, Brazil - Large Statue
    The Great Wall, China
    Machu Picchu, Peru
    Petra, Jordan - Ancient City
    The Roman Colosseum, Italy
    The Taj Mahal, India

I'll assume you were talking to me?

Anyway, which of the two lists are you talking about? I got the first one, about the wonders of the modern world, from here. However, I got the other list, the one about the new "new" list based on popularity, from here.

Enjoy.

It is that first list I take heart to. Doing a little research, and that list is a list compiled by the american society of engineers.

Any ideas how long it took them to decide on that list? I bet they didnt even have to order chinese food. Twisted Evil
