After a difficult and exhausting year, 2020 is finally nearing its end. Between wildfires spreading across Australia and the US, a global pandemic that has shaken the very foundation of life as we know it, and so many other circumstances, things have definitely been difficult on everyone across the world. All of these events have essentially put all types of travel on hold for the near future, but it is our hope that with us all working together to flatten the COVID-19 curve, the world can slowly start to rebuild and recover some sense of normalcy. With all of this added stress and pressure to our daily lives, it isn’t abnormal for our mental health to take a hit as well. At FlyLargent we are advocates of all things that improve quality of life! Mental health is such an important factor to our lives that should never be overlooked; and what better way than to partner improving mental health with traveling the world? In general, it has been often said how travel can benefit your health in a plethora of ways, but this blog post is going to focus on some of the best places you can visit to really give you a boost to your well-being!

Last week we explored some of the New Wonders of the World. From the Great Wall of China to the Christ the Redeemer Statue in Rio De Janeiro, from Machu Picchu in Peru to the Chichen Itza in Mexico, these iconic sites are definitely ones you’ll want to add to your bucket list! This week’s post is featuring the rest of the icons on the list of New Wonders of the World and also one very special honorable mention!
The Roman Colosseum (Rome)
Starting off today’s list is the Roman Colosseum. One of Italy’s most famous structures, the Colosseum draws in millions of visitors every year. Teeming with culture and history, it is home to some of the most brutal and interesting entertainment in history. From gladiator contests, to animal hunts, to elaborate reenactments of famous battles of their time, the 50,000 spectators that were able to be seated there were witness to some of history’s most spectacular entertainment.
Taj Mahal (Agra, India)
This magnificent mausoleum was built to honor the Mughal emperor Shah Jahan’s favorite wife, Mumtaz Mahal. The name of this structure essentially means “crown of palaces” which is fitting due to the fact that there are twenty-eight different types of jewels set into the marble. During its creation, the chief architect Ustad Ahmad Lahauri actually constructed the surrounding towers to be tilted slightly away from the main building so in the event that they were damaged they would fall away from the Taj Mahal and protect the grave from being damaged.
Deep within Jordan’s desert canyons lies the stone city of Petra. Tombs, tunnels, and sacred monuments are hand carved into the sandstone cliffs. The outdoor Petra theatre can seat between 5,000 and 8,000 people. The Smithsonian Magazine selected it as one of the 28 places to see before you die by Smithsonian Magazine and this historic site brings in hundreds of thousands of visitors each year.
Other mentions: The Great Pyramid of Giza - Egypt
The Great Pyramid of Giza is the last surviving wonder of the Ancient World. Estimated to have been built sometime between 2540 B.C.and 2560 B.C. this structure has survived incredible harsh climates of the Western Desert. The pyramids were built to house and honor the pharaohs after death. The tombs held a multitude of precious artifacts such as gold and silver but it has been said that curses and traps awaited any who would attempt to steal from the pharaohs.
Every single one of these entries are definitely places worth visiting in a lifetime. They are some of the most visited places for a reason! Their awe-inspiring beauty and stunning craftsmanship will leave a mark on your life like no other. A private and luxurious flight is just one inquiry away and you could be on your way there tomorrow!
