What Are The Real 7 Wonders Of The World?
Have you heard of the 7 Wonders of the World? You might think that is just one single list, but it's actually much more than that. Which wonders of the world do you know about? Maybe you know about the natural wonders, and there are some great ones to see for sure. There are also the buildings or structures made by man that have their own list. And, there are other lists, too. The number seven is quite popular with these lists, so the point is only that when talking about the 7 wonders of the world, you have to know which list.
Naturally, in conversation, you don't have to be so technical as to point out which list you're talking about. You can just say one of the 7 wonders of the world, but that is also why some people don't know there are actually multiple lists of them. For example, you also have to go by time periods in some respects. The ancient world has its own 7 wonders list. You've certainly heard of the Great Pyramid, and it is on that list.
It's the ancient world that the first list was about, and so it gets first dibs so to speak. Do you know what else is on the list of ancient wonders? The Temple of Artemis is one of them, located in Ephesus. The Lighthouse in Alexandria is another one, and that would certainly be cool to see. It would be cool to see any of the world's wonders in person. However, my favorite would be to see the natural wonders, the ones that God created, not man.
The world's wonders that are part of creation are the most magnificent, and you might even know most of them or some of them at least. Of course, there are natural wonders on other lists, too. For example, the Polar Ice Caps in the polar regions of the world are one of the world's wonders from a list made in the 2000's for world wonders in general by a popular media outlet. So there are all kinds of natural wonders out there that have made various lists, some of them more than others.
One of the current wonders of the world on some modern lists is far from natural but all about technology. Did you know that the Internet makes many people's lists as a wonder of the world these days? Of course, the Grand Canyon is often on the lists of natural wonders, and that is one landmark that puts the US on the map. The older Jerusalem is also considered to be a wonder, and that is certainly a place I'd like to visit.
What other natural wonders do you think would make the lists? There is The Great Barrier Reef, and Mount Everest is another one. Wouldn't it be nice to be able to summit Mount Everest? Not many people out there can say they've done that, but of course, more people have at least been to the mountain and have seen the natural wonder in one way or another.
There are even a wonders of nature list, and there are seven of them all the same. For example, on that list is Komodo Island and the Amazon Rainforest. Both of those are rather large wonders of nature for sure. Have you had the pleasure of visiting any of the world's wonders? I can say that I can't think of a single one that I've been to, and they would have to be stateside, although I have traveled quite often all over the southern US.
