    Yeah, that's what I figured. The strange thing is that the building's picture is that of very Dutch buildings, but it has an English flag on it - I've been to both, so I figured that counted :p

    Maybe when Cathedral of Saint Sava becomes a World Wonder I will have one, at least :)

    World Wonder

    CN Tower

    Natural Wonders

    Old Faithful
    Barringer Crater

    Project

    Apollo Program (Cape Canaveral/Kennedy Space Center)

    Only one natural wonder allowed in Arizona.

    The CN Tower isn't a skyscraper, it's a tower. A really tall tower.

    What makes the Statue of Liberty more special than Cristo Redentor, or Eiffel Tower more than CN Tower?



    Yeah, I guess they wanted the world wonders to be spread about the world. How odd.

    I've only ever seen Big Ben, when I was on a trip to England in high school.

    Neuschwanstein
    Broadway

    I've seen Big Ben and Brandenburg Gate but didn't spend time on them.

    Hopefully Taj Mahal and Angkor Wat next - I live in Thailand and this two places are close + not expensive to reach.

    Out of natural wonders, I've only seen Mt. Fuji.

    Broadway, Big Ben, Statue of Liberty, flown over Stonehenge but didn't visit, and though it isn't a wonder I've always thought it should be St. Paul's Cathedral.

    Big Ben*
    Brandenburg Gate
    Broadway
    Chicken Itza
    Cristo Redentor
    Eiffel Tower*
    The Kremlin
    Louvre
    Machu Picchu
    Notre Dame
    Pentagon*
    Statue of Liberty*

    Also The Hermitage and Oxford University if we're counting "national" wonders.

    Planning to visit Uffizi and the Leaning Tower this spring.

    *Have seen, haven't actually been 'in'

    For the most part they were all pretty awesome. I'd have to pick Macchu Picchu, Chicken Itza, The Kremlin, and Notre Dame as the ones that 'wow-ed' me the most. Notre Dame even managed to be impressive despite having seen plenty of cathedrals by then and pouring through with throngs of tourists. OTOH trying to see the Mona Lisa et al through packs of people was not nearly as rewarding.

    Traveling via plane is the most expensive part.

    If you can get creative and if you are not afraid of taking risks then it's otherwise no more expensive (plane included, assuming you bought your tickets far enough in advance) than a weekend of dining out and a couple of movies.

    I've been mugged numerous times (I always travel with my money in two-three separate spots), I often try to limit myself to $1 street food whenever possible (has gotten me really sick numerous times), and for accommodation I look for the cheapest place to stay depending on the location (that is, a hostel, camping outdoors, couch surfing, or even meeting someone during my adventures and trusting them and staying at their house for free). You have to sacrifice the daily comforts you're used to to see the world, but it's worth it. Traveling through Asia cheap is the easiest of all the regions in the world

    Now that I think of, I am disappointed with myself. I should have traveled more.

    Big Ben.
    Stonehenge.
    Hagia Sophia (the best on the list!).
    The Oracle.
    Statue of Zeus (where is was, anyway. And the workshop where it was made).
    Globe Theatre.
    Parthenon.

    I've visited Oxford University too, but that's a national wonder.

    Only one other person has been to the Oracle- would have thought it would be more...
