Seniors Add to Their Bucket List

There has been a lot of conjecture among those “in the know” as to what THE Seven Wonders really are. There are so many impressive sites that are culturally, historically or naturally significant, all over the world, that choosing only seven is not only very difficult, but today, most ‘senior’ authorities agree that there can be no consensus.  Nevertheless there are sites that say “This is it”  or “These seven belong on the list”.

Senior Citizens, What Would Your ‘Seven List’ Look Like?

If you are a senior world traveler and have seen some of the wonders, what would your own list look like? I remember a friend who traveled around the world.  When I asked him what were the most memorable spots he had visited, Andy replied “I loved Jordan” but “Hawaii is Paradise.”  His spots were countries.  Have you been to both?  If so how do they compare?

Well here is a list compiled by CNN but how can anyone shrink great sites down to just 7?

To each his own…

For many years folks have conjured up lists such as Wonders of the Middle Ages, Seven Wonders of the Medieval Mind, and Architectural Wonders of the Medieval World. I have to admit that each is very impressive.

Then there is the New7Wonders Foundation that has their preferences. USA Today made up their listing that included the Polar Ice Caps, the Internet and the Great Migration on the Serengeti Plains.

Then we have the Seven Wonders of the Underwater World drawn up by CEDAM International (an American-based non-profit group for divers) with includes the Great Barrier Reef, Lake Baikal (Yes, it should be on this list), the Galapagos and the Deep_Sea Vents.

So if you are sufficiently confused we shall proceed…

That’s what my Psych prof used to say daily to our class. To conclude I include the master listing of many Wonders for you to wonder about even more.  Me, I’m into World Heritage Sites that always top my list. So enjoy surfing the world of wonders. jeb
