You have to visit this place! The Pyramids of Giza are one of the Seven Wonders of the World. How could you turn it down? You have the Pyramid of Kafhre, The Great Pyramid of Khufu and the smaller pyramid of Menkaura. In Giza, there are three main pyramids. Each pyramid is a tomb leading to a different one. Looking at these ancient structures today would be nothing short of a magical experience!


Santorini, Greece

Santorini is one of the Cycladic islands that was created when a volcano erupted. Some people say this is the famous island of Atlantis. The island has a versatile landscape with lush beaches, small white villages and steep rock. Santorini is a group of islands that are formed in a circle about 10 kilometers across. Settlements have been scattered across the islands as a series of tiny villages. There are famous white buildings that are huddled close to each other. This is definitely a must see. Hiking paths and trails are all over!


Stonehenge, England

Have you ever been to Stonehenge, England? Stonehenge is popular throughout the world. This site is pretty large and contains structures that date bad to the Neolithic period as well as the Bronze Age. It is considered to be the most archeologically rich sights to be found in Europe.

Rome is known as The Eternal City. It has churches, squares, monumental palaces and fountains that are a must see. There is so much that you can do in Rome. The largest island in the Mediterranean is Sicily and it is very beautiful. If you enjoy climbing and walking, then the Dolomites is a must see. A lifetime of discovery awaits you!

There are three lochs found in the Great Glen and Loch Ness is the biggest out of the three. It is twenty-three miles long and a mile in width. It averages at six hundred feet in depth. It has over two cubic miles of water that is fresh. And it is plain gorgeous!

Famous Quotes

Those who cannot learn from history are doomed to repeat it.

George Santayana

Pyramid of the Sun and Moon, Teotihuacán

This is mysterious and towering. The Pyramids of the Sun and Moon rise above Teotihuacán. This is an empty city that once had two hundred thousand people. By A.D 750, it had been abandoned, perhaps because of a drought or a disaster. Five hundred years later, the Aztecs found it. Truly, this place is a must see.


Incan Ruin – Machu Picchu, Peru

Machu Picchu is the lost city floating in a kingdom of clouds. It is a mysterious settlement that the Incas constructed. It was lived in and deserted in less than one century. For hundreds of years, this city was hidden away in a jungle. Then, during the year 1911, Hira Bingham took a expedition to the Peruvian Andes. This is where he met a farmer that guided him to the ruins of the hidden city. This is the city that has not been destroyed or looted before.


The Golden Pavilion, Japan

This is probably the most recognizable temple to be found in Japan. It has been covered in gold. The Golden Pavilion shines in the light. It looks as if it is a beautiful jewelry box. During the 1950’s, a Buddhist temple novice who was disturbed burned this fourteenth century pavilion down. After five years, this lovely Pavilion rose again.


Bimini: the Road to Atlantis

An American psychic, Edgar Cayce had predicted that evidence of Atlantis (the lost continent) would show up in the Bahamas in either the year 1968 or 1969. During the year 1968, pilots had photographed structures that looked a lot like roads, buildings and walls under the waters of Bimini Island. Other individuals have claimed that they saw what looked like stone circles and pyramids on the sea bed down there. What has been concerned is the Bimini road. It is unique and there are no denying that they are straight and look like they are manmade.

You see, here, we do not have the common places to visit, such as Florida, the Philippines and Paris, we have unique places, such as The Road to Atlantis and the Stonehenge. These are all sights that you just have to see before you die! Do you have anything to add to this list?

Where Thoughts and Opinions Converge

I've beeen to Isreal and it was the most breath taking place I've ever been to. The people are amazing and not to mention the food. I gained 10lbs in one week that I was there. I can't wait to go back and stay for at least a month.There is so much to see and do there.

Truly wonderful places, but as a travel journalist I would most definitely add the south of Spain to your list. Not because of the iconic Alhambra, nor the buzz of Sevilla or the quaint British outpost Gibraltar - but simply because there's NO place like Andalusia to experience the true spirit of "mañana". By all means - skip the touristy Costa del Sol, the reward lies on the neighboring Costa de la Luz where life gets PERFECT. I mean it!

I would add Sabi Sands in South Africa for the best chance of sotting the Big 5 (lion, leopard,elephant, rhino & buffalo) in the wild. Victoria Falls one of the 7 natural wonders of the world. Tanzania for the Ngorongoro Crater, Mt. Kilimanjaro and the Serengeti. and Mali for the music, culture and the joy of being able to say you rode a camel in Timbuktu!

1 & 3, i didn't even KNOW about 1, and i LOVE atlantis!!!! great post <3

I'd add The Great Wall of China, it's an incredible sight. Thanks so much for the list!

what about the cataratas wonder water falls in Brazil and Florida USA???

I just love your post Melanie:)
