78 Worldly Wonders

Around the World in 80 Ways

— November 15, 2009 — Art & Design
The most amazing thing about the Internet is its ability to connect every corner of the earth. These worldly wonders show just a taste of what the world has to offer to the online community.

North America, South America, Europe, Asia and Australia are all represented in this sampling of worldly wonders.

Implications - The world is growing increasingly smaller in today's digital age, where constant, worldwide communication is not only possible, it's the norm. Thus, those in different parts of the world are adapting one another's customs and cultures, making for a generation of worldly individuals who may never have had to leave their houses to learn what they know.
