Throw a coin into the Trevi Fountain

This one started when I was 5 or 6. That was the year The Lizzie McGuire Movie came out. Theres a part when Lizzie and her best friend Gordo, along with the rest of the class, visit the Trevi Fountain and make a wish to find adventure while in Rome. My 5 year old self was totally amazed by the fountain, it was so pretty, and ever since that movie, I've loved Italy. Then there was also the legend, that if you throw a coin into the Trevi, turned around, throwing the coin with your right hand, over your left shoulder,  it'll ensure a return to Rome. Everyone has thrown a coin into a fountain at the mall or something, but Italy? Thats something unlikely, that I'd love to try.

The Seven Wonders of the World

These places are some I've always wanted to see. I think it all started in about 4th grade when my teacher said he had been to three out of the seven. He showed us pictures, in front of the coliseum and other places. I was amazed at what he'd seen. I didn't know what the other four were, so i had to google it. XD
After searching Wikipedia, I found out what they were. All 7 would be: The Coliseum, in Italy; The Great Wall of China; The Great Pyramids of Giza, in Egypt; The Taj Mahal, in India; Christ the Redeemer, in Brazil; Chichenitza, in Mexico; Machu Picchu, in Peru; and Petra, in Jordan.
