Places of a Lifetime – World Wonders

       At the turn of the millenium, National Geographic’s Traveler Magazine published a special issue, entitled, 50 Places of  Lifetime, The World’s Greatest Destinations. Over the next few weeks, I will revisit this list, which was divided into five categories, Urban Spaces, Wild Places, Paradise Found, Country Unbound, and World Wonders. Following the recap, which will also include a photo album, I will attempt to come up with my own list. Hope you enjoy the result.
