Critique: Not everyone was excited about the ‘New 7 Wonders’ contest, from residents of Easter Island to the British, who didn’t cast enough votes for Stonehenge. I’m not a checklist traveler, although obviously a lot of people are (just look at the popularity of the book 1000 Places to See Before You Die, now a
TV show on the Discovery Channel). When it comes to the wonders of world, the most impressive that I’ve been to is Cambodia’s Angkor Wat – and yes, I did vote for it in the N7W contest.
