The Wonders of The World

Seeing “The Seven Wonders of The World” is a concept that really appeals to me and my bucket list just wouldn’t be complete without it appearing on there somehow. There are however a few problems with this. Firstly, the origin of the concept came from The Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, trouble here is that only one of these still exists, The Great Pyramid of Giza. Secondly, the almighty “they” keep moving the goal posts and coming up with new lists (maybe not a bad thing, keeps My Bucket List growing without me doing anything). So below is list of Wonders (pretty much harvested from Wikipedia) in three categories that I want to see. I’m not really bothered anymore how official it is or who originally classified any of the below as “Wonders of The World”. So this is Bazzlewazzle’s Timeless List of Wonders of the World!
