Machu Picchu

Machu Picchu is a pre-Columbian Inca site located 50 mi northwest of Cuzco Peru thats sometimes called The Lost City of the Incas.

The Incas started building it around 1400 AD but abandoned only 100 years later possibly because of Spanish Conquest or its inhabaitants died from smallpox that the european explorers exposed them to ,although , it was never actually found by the Spanish .It remained hidden until 1911, when Hiram Bingham, an American employed at Yale Universitys led by a local 11 year old native boy rediscovered it and named it The Lost City of the Incas.

I always dreamed of visiting the most exotic places in the world . Stories of Shangri-la, pirates, explorers, and lost cities must have intrigued all of us at some time in our lives. Like most of us, a majority of these places I have never been lucky enough to have actually visited and probably never will. Luckily through modern technology of the internet and shared videos and photographs we can all enjoy fabulous places with a few simple clicks of a mouse . In our imagination we can explore new worlds ,climb mountains and find lost cities and sail the 7 Seas.
Down through the ages many civilizations have documented their own lists of Wonders of the World .Here is my personal compilation of places I always dreamed about.I hope you enjoy visiting them here on these sites and return often to the wonders of the world.
