this just makes me want to save up alllll my money and travel!  here is a compilation of some of the world’s most awesome landmarks.  a landmark is any recognizable structure or natural fixture.  we have tons in the United States that are tourist attractions (Statue of Liberty, St. Louis Arch, the Washington Monument…) here are a few of my favorites from the list:

the Statue of Liberty in new york.  i recently read that the statue of liberty was actually intended to be a gift for Egypt, but they refused it and America was France’s second choice… she’s a hand-me-down!
