four wonders in one year

Four world wonders in one year!!!

Let me tell you about that one time we got to see four world wonders in one year!

First up was the iconic Incan citadel of Machu Picchu. We did a four day adventure trek to get here and it lived up to all our expectations!

… And then some!! Perched high up in the Peruvian Andes, it makes you wonder how the Incas built this marvel.

The ancient city itself as well as altitude will truly take your breath away!

Second was the Great wall of China. When $400 return tickets to Beijing popped up, how could we not go??

Seeing the wall wind up and over the mountains was cool to see!

It’s crazy to think that the whole length goes for just over 21,000kms! But despite the urban legend, you can’t see it from space.

Third on the list was the Great Pyramids of Giza.

This only surviving ancient wonder did not disappoint. Although not one of the “new” wonders, how could we not count it?

Truly amazing how they have endured the test of time.

Scraping in with days to spare on the year mark, was our fourth wonder. The beautiful rose city of Petra.

Felt like Indiana Jones stand ins while walking the old routes used for trading between the middle East and Asia.

Was a great finale to our year of wonders!

Pretty excited as we get to tick off another real soon… the Taj Mahal!!

Since we’re running out of world wonders we won’t get to see four in one year again! But don’t worry we’ll come up with more of our own world wonders 😉 got to keep the exploring dream alive 😀
