The Wonders of the World Series

 

Let’s take travel to the next level!

In the next few years we at 1000 Treks will be leading a series of trips to the most amazing places in the world: The Wonders of the World. We will visit the only remaining wonder of the ancient world (Great Pyramid of Giza), the official Seven Wonders of the Modern World and several other places and structures that are considered “wonders” of our world.

Our motto is, “Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”  So let’s go for it! Let’s live and travel like it’s nobody’s business!
