Machu Picchu – One of the New Seven Wonders of the World

Have you ever thought of visiting Machu Picchu? Did you know it is one of the New Seven Wonders of the World?

I love the place and that is why I have visited Machu Picchu 3 times!! Is that a bit excessive?? I don’t normally visit a place more than once but this place has certainly captured my heart and I can’t wait to visit for a fourth time in January 2017.

Koyasan, Japan – A beautiful UNESCO World Heritage site

I flew in from China and arrived in Osaka early evening, just in time to go out for dinner.  What a culture shock from the hustle and bustle of china to such friendly and polite people.

The next day I was up early and headed to Koyasan.  It’s only a couple of hours from Osaka and easy to get to.  You get the subway to Namba station and then transfer to the Nankai Koya Line and get a direct train to Gokurakubashi or get an express train and change at Hashimoto station.  Once you arrive at Gokurakubashi then transfer to the cable car which takes you up the mountain to Koyasan.

Ischia – A beautiful island off the coast of Naples
