While searching out a topic for today’s journal, I came across one about The Seven Ancient Wonders, found here.
- The Great Pyramid of Giza
- The Hanging Gardens of Babylon
- The Statue of Zeus at Olympia
- The Temple of Artemis at Ephesus
- The Mausoleum of Maussollos at Halicarnassus
- The Colossus of Rhodes
- The Lighthouse of Alexandria
I would love to see Stonehenge. I can’t really explain why other than the fact that it fascinates me. I’ve always been drawn to it. So much so, that I visited the Maryhill Stonehenge. While I may never be able to visit the real thing, I can enjoy that I live so close to something that not only references that wonderful Ancient Wonder, it also is a monument to honor soldiers who died in WWI.
The Colosseum would also be something to see. I’ve always enjoyed Ancient Mythology. I’ve also enjoyed drama/performing in all it’s many forms. While I’m not a big fan of all the gladiatorial contests that Ancient Rome is known for, I still enjoy the historical aspect of it. It would be something to see should I ever get to visit Europe.
