Each one of us has different dreams who wants to be come true. Someone wants to be famous, to be a singer or a great actress. Another one wishes to become a painter, an architect, a doctor, stay home or do weird and different stuff . I like traveling. If i could, i would never stay home. I like seeing new landmarks, new cultures, get information about different places all the world, but also with me being in there. If I would have the possibility, I wouldn’t turn it down. This is my list of the landmarks I want to visit :
The ruins of Machu Picchu, rediscovered in 1911 by Yale archaeologist Hiram Bingham, are one of the most beautiful and enigmatic ancient sites in the world. While the Inca people certainly used the Andean mountain top , erecting many hundreds of stone structures from the early 1400s, legends and myths indicate that Machu Picchu (meaning Old Peak in the Quechua language) was revered as a sacred place from a far earlier time. Whatever its origins, the Inca turned the site into a small but extraordinary city. Invisible from below and completely self-contained, surrounded by agricultural terraces sufficient to feed the population, and watered by natural springs, Machu Picchu seems to have been utilized by the Inca as a secret ceremonial city. Two thousand feet above the rumbling Urubamba river, the cloud shrouded ruins have palaces, baths, temples, storage rooms and some 150 houses, all in a remarkable state of preservation. These structures, carved from the gray granite of the mountain top are wonders of both architectural and aesthetic genius. Many of the building blocks weigh 50 tons or more yet are so precisely sculpted and fitted together with such exactitude that the mortarless joints will not permit the insertion of even a thin knife blade. Little is known of the social or religious use of the site during Inca times. The skeletal remains of ten females to one male had led to the casual assumption that the site may have been a sanctuary for the training of priestesses and /or brides for the Inca nobility. However, subsequent osteological examination of the bones revealed an equal number of male bones, thereby indicating that Machu Picchu was not exclusively a temple or dwelling place of women.
Heralded as the most beautiful waterfalls in the world, the Iguazu Waterfalls are a true wonder of nature. They are located at the border of Argentina, Brazil and Paraguay. While the Argentinean side allows visitors to walk right around the water or explore theNational Park; the Brazilian side is known for its panoramic views and splendor. Today, the region is the border among three countries: Brazil, Argentina and Paraguay, and can be reached by plane or through the Asunción-Paranaguá highway. The Iguazu Falls constitute one of the biggest and most beautiful falls of water in the world, considered by some as the eighth wonder of the world. The volume of water at the Iguazu Falls is nine times superior to that of theNiagara Falls.
Taj Mahal is regarded as one of the eight wonders of the world, and some Western historians have noted that its architectural beauty has never been surpassed. The Taj is the most beautiful monument built by the Mughals, the Muslim rulers of India. Taj Mahal is built entirely of white marble. Its stunning architectural beauty is beyond adequate description, particularly at dawn and sunset. The Taj seems to glow in the light of the full moon. On a foggy morning, the visitors experience the Taj as if suspended when viewed from across the Jamuna river.

Carnival is the most popular holiday in Brazil, the carnival of Rio de Janeiro and the richest known, attracting thousands of domestic and foreign tourists. Every year, the Carnival season, the city of Rio de Janeiro for five days breathes an enviable air of joy. Cariocas forget problems and obligations and surrender to the gigantic spectacle of dance and magic. The culmination of the festival is the Parade at Marquês de Sapucaí where different Samba schools compete for the title of Carnival Champion.Samba, vivid colors, splendid costumes and beautiful women are the main ingredients of this great dispute. The date of Mardi Gras varies from year to year depending on Easter. Generally Bash occurs between the end of February and early March. The official start of Carnival is always on a Saturday and end at noon the following Wednesday, called "Ash Wednesday". However many people are starting the festivities on Friday. It is said that the very year in Brazil officially starts only after the Carnival. During most of the nineties, the carnival was reduced to the samba school parades and dances in the great private clubs. The famous and traditional "street carnival" in which people play spontaneously without paying an admission fee, had been abandoned. In recent years, however, this form of celebration is being recovered. The Carnival has many possible sources that lead to thousands of years before Christ. The word carnival may have its origin in the Latin expression "carrum novalis" used by the Romans to open their celebrations. Or perhaps the word "carnelevale" which means "farewell to meat" in Milanese dialect, a reference to the beginning of Christian Lent.
