Having never taken a flown on a plane until my junior year of college when I flew to New York City for an internship interview, I decided to see the Seven Wonders of the World before I turned thirty. With a study abroad in China in 2005, backpacking Europe in 2006, followed by India in 2007, Peru in 2008, Egypt and Kenya in 2009 and touring Jordan, Israel, Turkey, and Greece in 2010, I have managed to see the Great Wall, the Coliseum, Taj Mahal, Machu Picchu, the Pyramids, and Petra. This January 2013, I finally saw Christ the Redeemer while in Brazil with classmates.
