Title: New seven wonders of World.
Post by: Petra Rocks on January 17, 2007, 06:43:47 AM
A Swiss based group is trying to make a new list of 7 wonders of the world and if you want you can vote for them. :) Bet nobody will guess which one I voted for. XD I have no idea how official or important this is, but BBC ran an article about it and I thought it looked moderately interesting so I posted it here. XD

I need hardly say for what I voted either. ::) In case anyone needs a reminder, Ludwig II was awesome. :D :D

I've been there, it is nice, even if it wasn't finishes.  :(

But I have to vote for something older, like that something in UK.  ;D

We might get there again this year, it's been ages since I've last been there. :)

Me too. Sadly I'll probably never see it again. :'(

I've never seen any of those places in-person before. :-\ 

I've also never seen Timbuktu before whatsoever until now! XD

Interesting, because Good Morning, America did a new Seven Wonders of the World thing a month or so ago. Granted, there was a lot of controversy "they said THAT was a wonder?? What about...??" :P

Is that the Ludwig castle that you visited in Gabriel Knight II, or was that one of the other ones?

No the NEW seven wonders has been in the works for some time now. I've read several articles on it no.

If that question was toward me Tess, I've never played GK (maybe someday.) and while I have been to Disney World it doesn't compare to the real thing, which I have been to. I've actually seen a few on this list.

Neuschwanstein was the one you got to visit in GKII. :)

I can't find the story for it in the few minutes I have, but I kinda found them on the internet...

The Great Migration in Africa
Mayan Ruins
Polar Ice Caps/Glacier Lagoon
Old Jerusalem
Potala Palace
The Internet ::)
Hawaiian Islands Marine National Monument


As I said, it was pretty controversial

Thought I recognized the picture. That's pretty cool.

Nah, just toward everyone in general.  :)
