"European World Tour Ends With a Bang after Visiting Eight Finalists

World Tour Launches in Athens
Declaration in Lisbon, Portugal

After successful visits to the Acropolis in Athens, the Hagia Sophia (photo) in Istanbul, the Kremlin and St Basil's Cathedral in Moscow, the Colosseum in Rome, Neuschwanstein Castle in Bavaria, and Stonehenge in England, the European leg of the World Tour ended at the Alhambra, in Spain, on October 24.th. From the launch on, as the New7Wonders hot-air balloon rose in the pale light of an Athenian dawn to mark the start of the Tour at the ancient Acropolis, there were many incredible moments and meetings with fascinating people. We met historians, politicians, actors, museum curators, Bavarian dancers and singers and, in Stonehenge, real druids with long beards and flowing, white robes!

Watching the New7Wonders airship soaring through the European sky one last time as it gracefully flew above and around the Alhambra, the N7W team reflected on how well it had all gone. For one, despite bad forecasts and lots of rain the days before our events, we always had great weather!

We head to Asia next, with the first stop being the Great Wall of China on November 7.th.
Next year, we will be in Africa, the Middle East and South and North America.
As you know, the finale will be the Official Declaration of Modern World's New Seven Wonders on

July 7.th 2007 – 07.07.07 in Lisbon!"

… And that will happen at the Benfica Football Club's brand-new Luz Stadium!

Thank you, Ric, for the "New7Wonders" link. Whomever started it had/has a great idea!

Oh, I understand your response to 4-horses. But I most certainly hope you were not serious when you said that you have had it and "BYE, PEOPLE."

I need you to stick around!!

RIC disse...

Hello Gray! It's a Swiss guy who had the idea and has been developing the project. A mega project indeed!
Wish you all the best!

André disse...

ric, o "I've had it" era para os senhores dos cavalos, aqui o blog continua tão saudável como sempre, não é?
De Neuschwanstein, aliás de toda a região de Fussen, só tenho as melhores recordações. Já o Coliseu não tenho em tão boa memória, coisas da vida.

RIC disse...

Olá André, Boa noite! Farei os possíveis para que assim seja. Há que ser tolerante. Por vezes, as pessoas empolgam-se. É humano.
Não sou grande fã da Baviera (talvez deva dizer dos bávaros), admito, mas Luís II é quem é e Neuschwannstein é fabuloso! Ainda me lembro do passeio! Quanto a Roma, nada posso dizer, infelizmente...
Mas há mais 19 hipóteses!...
Obrigado pelo cuidado! :-)
