Top 100 Wonders

Venice, Italy

Venice, Italy

We love travel lists.  Here’s one from www.famouswonders.com. We’ve seen a few but our goal is to make it to these places together someday.  I know quite a task but a lifetime is a long time (subject to change when we have kids of course;). Here’s how we’re doing at 35.

A strike though indicates we both made it, Bold indicates that one of us was there, and regular type means we’ve yet to explore it!

One Response to Top 100 Wonders

  1. I think this is a great list but I didn’t make it. If I did I’d probably include or take off a few places. How about you? Know of any amazing places you’d include or been somewhere on the list that didn’t impress you? Let us know!
