    2: Himeji Castle
    3: Nueschwanstein
    4: Big Ben
    5: Alhambra
    6: Eiffel Tower
    7: Versaii
    8: Brandenburg Gate
    9: Broadway
    10: Pentagon..drove by
    11: United Nations...drove by
    12: Louvre

    Big Ben, Globe Theater (Not around any more, but I was probably close enough), Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame, Louvre, Hagia Sophia, Alhambra, Leaning Tower, Parthenon and Sistine Chapel. I think.

    Hey, you're in the same boat as me! I haven't been to any of the World Wonders. I haven't even been to a city with a World Wonder. I'm boring.

    Pretty sure it's only the Sydney Opera House and Mt. Fuji. Been close to the Great Barrier Reef and Himeji Castle, but haven't actually been to them.


    I'm so well travelled.

    In order of visits:

    Big Ben
    Stonehenge
    Oxford University (National Wonder)
    The Eiffel Tower
    The Louvre
    Sydney Opera House (seen from the harbour, never visited)
    The Pyramids
    Angkor Wat
    Chichen Itza
    The Forbidden City/"Forbidden Palace"
    Petra

    And, later this month:

    Machu Picchu

    I live pretty much outside the Pentagon, but have never visited. I probably visited Notre Dame when I was younger, but don't recall for certain.

    EDIT: Since others are including Natural Wonders, I can add:

    Great Barrier Reef (dived)
    Mt. Sinai
    Uluru
    Mt. Kilimanjaro (flown over, not visited)

    Cairns is the main drop-off point for dives on the reef, but probably the best GBR dive of all is the Yongala, which definitely compares favourably with my experiences elsewhere (topped only by Ras Mohammed because I was fortunate enough to have a dolphin join me at the start of the dive), and is closer to Townsville (not exactly a tourist hotspot, but I was living there at the time).

    Since you list favourites among them, I definitely have to list Petra as my no. 1 - and Borobodur is the one I'd most like to visit.

    I believe it. I only swam around one area (forget the name). Just happened to be incredibly underwhelming. A LOT of ridiculously gigantic clams though, which was the highlight particularly because I had no idea they existed that large until then


    My favorite part about Borobudur is by far the small details - the engravings covering the building tell some pretty amazing stories.

    I assume that most of the people who were at the CN tower also climbed to the top. Don't do it. The entrance fee is robbery. :mad:
