Pansy Picks Her Top Historical Adventures

One of my favorite things about being with Avery is our ability to adventure anywhere – from the Parisian museums to Venetian mysteries, we have gotten to learn about the history of each place we visit. Here’s hoping we get to check out some of these amazing sites!


 

Stonehenge
Located in England, its stones come all the way from Wales – a wonder, as this monument is over 3,000 years old! No one is quite sure how the builders got the stones from Wales, and have tried to replicate the feat to no avail. What a mystery – perhaps I shall solve it one day. Stonehenge is now fenced off, and you can no longer go into the circle.

Pyramids at Giza
Mind boggling to wonder how these  3,000 year old pyramids were constructed! The Pyramids align to the stars and the solstices and contain vast chambers we still haven’t opened. How did they even build them?! They are truly a marvel of human engineering  – the largest one, ordered built by the Pharaoh Khufu, stands high in the sky and serves as a reminder that these marvels were truly fit for kings!

Machu Picchu
This amazing city rests on top of a mountain that’s only accessible by train or 4-day hike! Sounds tiring, but worthwhile! The cultural center for the Inca civilization, it was abandoned when the Spanish came and is called the “Lost City of the Incas.” Named one of the New Seven Wonders of the World in 2007, Machu Piccu is awell sought-after tourist destination!

The Colosseum

roman colosseum
The Colosseum beautifully show remainders of a civilization that once controlled the world. Amazing not only for their construction, but also for their history and age, this is where Caesar walked and where gladiators battled. Though it has crumbled throughout the ages and much of it is restricted now, it serves as a reminder to an age of glory and accomplishment

Taj Mahal
Built in the 1600s, this building is a testament to undying love in India. A marble tomb built for Emperor Shah Jahan’s deceased wife, the Taj has around four million tourists annually.  It too was named one of the New Seven Wonders of the World.
