The Full Checklist

This is my full checklist of Wonders, in order of visit or intended visit.  Reviews and previews, when available, are linked.

There's a vague colour-coded system, which I can't be bothered to explain. This is all a pretty slow work in progress, compounded by my lack of design skills or software.

  1. This entire website is very impressive, and a fantastic idea, but I must ask: How in the world can you afford to visit all of these places?

    1. Thanks.

      I work offshore which brings in a reasonable salary. I travel cheaply - a daily travel budget need not exceed £25, which over a year works out at less than £10,000. With flights and extras, this amount is nudged up, but as I don't have children and have low overheads (no car for example), it's fairly achievable.
