We will never tire of the positive effects of nature . Its calming, soothing and inspiring influence will never go out of style.

Originally, a landmark literally meant a geographic feature used by explorers and others to find their way back or through an area. Now, a landmark includes anything that is easily recognizable, such as a monument or a building, or any other spot to designate places that might be of interest to tourists. A few examples are the Statue of Liberty, Uluru, the Taj Mahal, Mount Everest, and the Eiffel Tower.
If you missed my first post about Weird World Wonders , I recommend you check it out. There were some cool and interesting strange natural phenomenon from across the globe.
