The 50 Most Important Landmarks of the World

I was Stumbling around this morning and came across this link – 50 of the world’s most important and well known landmarks. I was kind of disappointed in how many of them I haven’t actually heard of but was also surprised to find that I’ve been to a few of them! Not many… but I hadn’t seen any of them this time last year! Check out the link and comment, how many of these have you been to?

I've been to the Grand Canyon, and I'm going again this summer! This just inspires me MORE in wanting to see the world. It's really all I want from life. Traveling is such a dream! I've seen the Statue of Liberty from a boat in the water next to it, but I've never been in the statue herself. I might actually be able to see Mt Rushmore this summer also. We'll see.

I don't know what my top 5 would be....
The Great Wall of China, Mt Fuji, Easter Island, The Great Buddha of Kamakura in Tokyo (Kamakura is my favorite period of Japanese history!) and the Acropolis of Athens. I think.... it's hard to choose! Let's just go to them all!
