Worlds top 100 wonders

http://www.hillmanwonders.com/kashmi...lley.htm#_vtop

How many of the 100 World wonders have you been to?

I've seen 13 of them, as much as I travel I would have expected more off the list. Now I have a lot more traveling to do with lots of hints were to go next.


Grand Canyon
Teotihuacan
Chichen Itza
Louvre Museum
Versailles
Carlsbad Caverns
Yellowstone National Park
New York Skyline
Eiffel Tower
Niagara Falls
Yosemite
Neuschwanstein Castle
San Francisco Bay & Cityscape


They also have a link for the top 1000 broken down by country.
Out of the 46 in the United States I've been to 31 of them.

only 4 of the top 32, but a full third of the top 100, although the Burj Al Arab was under construction when I saw it, and when I saw the sistine chapel, and karnac temple, I saw mostly scaffolding. Also, while I have been to Serengeti and Kenya, I never saw "the migration", but I still counted it.

16 of the top 100. Will be going to Santorini/Greek Isles this year and will be heading to Galapagos/Machu Pichu for 2006 so that will bump it up shortly.

Around 50 of the top 1000.

I haven't seen/been to any of those, but I consider the list to be incomplete as it doesn't contain the World's Largest Six-Pack

Wow, my "three" looks a lot more impressive coming after "zero."

Edit: ...and just before "one"!
