  6. Some people may know this about me already, I am what some people would consider to be introverted. So, for me my wonder would be anyplace that is quiet with no one around to be in my space or making too much noise. One of my favourite places to be is at work, at 5 a.m. before anyone else comes in, so I have time to figure out where I am at with work before I begin the day. I also like to be at home in my room if people are home making a lot of noise, or anywhere in the house if there is only one or two others at home. It has become a lot louder here recently, since a r

  11. And.....well, I guess people are used to it by now, but I'm going to be a bit different. My favorite place is Disneyland. Hear me out. I grew up going to the local theme parks with my family and a couple of close friends. I have so many amazing memories of great times with people I loved. I also grew up loving fantasy and Disney movies. And I've always loved history. My current best friend - the one who introduced me to the Harry Potter Universe - Is a huge Disney fan. He knows everything about the park and shared that love with me. When I visit Disneyland,
  12. I haven't been there in forever, but my personal wonder is definitely the Grand Canyon. I used to go to Arizona every summer with my family to visit some long-time family friends that were like grandparents to me. The Grand Canyon is so different from anything I have where I live, it felt like being transported into a different world being there. It's so gorgeous and it blows my mind that the formations there are completely natural. I can stand on a ledge and overlook the canyon, feeling both on top of the world and incredibly humbled and small at the same time. I also have some really great s
  13. Why must I have that muggle song 'Chicken Wing' in my head? I need New Kids.

      That would be so cool! I'm totally down for it :D

  15. Earlier
  16. I am not a huge fan of travelling but because of certain circumstances I had to travel quite a lot. First, I had to move from Poland to England. Then, I got married to a French Canadian. This led to me frequently going to both Canada and France (his mum lives in Canada and his dad in France). Also, I was in Spain once to visit his great grandma. I really like Canada, especially my partner's home town - London (the one in Canada). I would like to visit each region because of the beautiful environment and the amount of wild life. I love wolves and I know there are tones of them in the Yellowst
  17. Now that I think about it, it is hard to find a place of wonder in the city. If I am there in the island where I grew up, I could list many places. However, in the city, it is a challenge, with the many people bustling through life, ourselves included. Maybe the nearest to our home is my university. I am fortunate to study in a university that is wide and has many greens. I love it when the wind blows and the trees sway and leaves fall. It feels refreshing. It is also magical in the night. The orange glows of the lampposts bring that magical feeling. I would love to sit on a bench and just loo
  18. My wonder place is Easter Island. It's a beautiful place, filled with traditions, loving people and beautiful scenarios. (It's a little island so I'm guessing Will will like it since his favorite place is algo an island) You can literally bike circles around the island, the culture is so diverse and the Moais are magnificent. Also in 1995 UNESCO named Easter Island a World Heritage Site, so if you ever get the chance to go, please do so. Another place for me which is a wonder and not very liked by many is any city at night from a high spot looking down. There'
  19. I wish to address something which Astor wrote -- about 'home' being a wonder. I feel so lucky (?)(is that the word?) to have been posted here where the strait is but 10-15 minutes drive away, I can see mountains and am surrounded by verdant and abundant plant life of all kinds. Here, too, I have my 4-legged friends, who are always a source of quiet and peace (except when they're not ) and I just feel privileged to live in a beautiful place. Amy, your post reminded me of another wonder, which I absolutely loved when I was a kid. Another aunt and uncle had a house/cabin/cabins up
  20. I'm going to switch it up and go to the mountains. We used to go to the smokey mountains as a kid to visit distant relatives and in fall especially, it's magical. The trees are golds and browns and reds as far as you can see and often times there's the mist that hasn't quite faded. I'm afraid of heights, so I would never go to the edges and look over the edge. I was more content to be among the trees, leaves crunching beneath my feet and feeling I had walked into every fairy tale forest that I read about. It probably helps that I've always trees in general as a kid and still do as a adult. S
  21. [OUT OF CHARACTER] Although I haven't been there in nearly a year, I would say that my preferred 'wonder' is a small island that - while within walking distance of where I live, is technically not in my state because of the way the state boundaries were decided way back in the past. The easiest way to get there is by a hidden path: you make like you're about to go into the city and - instead of going straight into the city, or turning left onto the major roads, you take a right onto a hidden, shaded trail with a view of the river. In a few minutes you'll see a small footbridge which wi
  22. Oddly enough, my own wonder of the world goes to the beach too. In a little town close to Santa Cruz, California, my uncle and aunt had a vacation cottage which he had built. From the front window one could see the ocean. It was a short (1/4 mile) walk to wind down the road and then down the cliff and get to the beach. Truly magnificent, the times of sunny days were just as great as times of storms. We'd often go to other places by the ocean, to go clamming and/or fishing -- I just love being by the ocean. A favorite place that I go to now is, again, by salt water -- albeit not the ocea
  23. My Wonder place I like to go to has to be a beach by the ocean. The beach my family and I go to the most is Wells Beach in Maine. Being able to set up our little spot and watching the kids playing in the water or building sand castles is all I need to relax. This year it seems a bit more relaxing than in the past years. With COVID restrictions in many states there wasn't as many vacationers there. The beaches were not crowded, even the little village seemed quieter. Walking the beach early in the morning (5:00am) and watching the sunrise makes you marvel at the sight. It's amazing the diffe

      Still dealing with them. It's gotta be allergy related.


  25. It's really hard to think of my wonder, a place I love to go to. I do not travel much, much less even leave the house. But due to my immense passion and love for animals, I'd have to say the zoo, or an animal conservatory. Specifically, the Columbus Zoo. I went there first when I was 4 years old and I absolutely loved it. I've always loved everything regarding animals and their habits, their actions. I have been fascinated by creatures ever since I can remember, growing up with animals my entire life contributed to that. Another place I consider my wonder, is home. Being able to be with my pet
  26. My wonder, if you will, is a rather humble little place, but one that I find magical all the same. For me, Monhegan Island, off the coast of Maine is almost like a portal to another time and place. To get there from Portland, it is almost an hour's ride by ferry, and you are surrounded by nothing but the mists and fog rolling across the seemingly endless Atlantic. The best way I can describe it is that it is reminiscent of the crossing into Avalon. Honestly, that's what it felt like to me. You feel so...small, and at times the journey is almost frightening. I know it may sound silly, bu
  27. We know the famous "Seven Wonder of the World", both the new 7 Wonders (Mount Everest, Harbour of Rio de Janeiro, Great Barrier Reef, Victoria Falls, Paricutin Volcano, Grand Canyon and the Aurora Borealis) and the original 7 Wonders (The Great Pyramid of Giza, the Hanging Gardens of Babylon, the Statue of Zeus at Olympia, the Temple of Artemis at Ephesus, the Mausoleum at Halicarnassus, the Colossus of Rhodes and the Lighthouse of Alexandria). For a discussion we do "Where is your own wonder.. the place you love to go... " Tell us why it is so wonderful for you. Writ
