Seven Wonders(Geography)

Ever wondered about the 7 wonders of the world? Did you hear that on 07.07.07 a new 7 wonders were announced? Did you know there are lots of other ‘7 Wonders’ such as the ‘7 Wonders of the Underwater World’? What about the ‘8th Wonder’?

But this program isn’t just about investigating the wonders. You will be given a budget to plan your world trip to visit the wonders of your choice. You can work in a small team or by yourself. Your challenge will be to plan the trip of a lifetime within the budget. In addition you’ll have to research travel, accommodation, eating, languages and weather. Then there’s the list of things to pack!

Just in case you think that’s all there is to it, don’t forget there’ll be a 7 Wonders Mystery to solve each week. For example, what local ‘ship’ building almost became one of the 7 New Wonders?
