Only 4, but I am happy that I have at least some things on the list. But, the Eiffel Tower, seriously?!?! I walked away after 5 minutes because I found it really ugly. The Notre Dame for example is way more beautiful!! As well the Delphi oracle is way more of a miracle than the Parthenon is, but okay. And I was really close to those meteors in Greece too, but i háven't actually seen them so, 4 it is :)
