    I have seen exactly none of the wonders IRL :D
    Believe me, I plan to change this in the future.

    I live close to New York City, so I have seen the UN and the Statue of Liberty.

    I've been to Hollywood back in 2005 but not in the Hollywood sign itself. Does that count?

    I guess yes - after all not the sign itself makes the people happy, but the industry behind it.

    I thought I might be the only one to see the pyramids. Now, it's best to go as part of the US Army or other armed force as I did. Egypt is a bit "restive" right now.

    Well, technically I have seen a bunch of the wonders on TV, and I'm using the Internet now... :p

    While I have seen many, my favorite was our company outing to the mids.
    We got to ride camels out to our dinner site overlooking the mids, lit up at night. The tents were set up on the other side so you could see the Nile and the city in the background. It was quite special. The next night we had dinner aboard small skiffs on the Nile.

    The previous year, the company conference was near the GW so our outing dinner was there.

    Interesting company you work for :thumbsup:

    Too few of you are posting actual pictures of them in front of the wonders though :(
