  1. This is truly a wonderful idea. I’m glad he did this, in addition to being intensely envious of anyone who has the opportunity to travel this widely.

    Also, bonus amusement points because it looks like the person in yellow shorts at Buckingham Palace is trying not to pee his pants.

  2. Wow, these are really cool. And kind of more meaningful, right? There’s umpteen nearly identical photos of all those landmarks, but this guy has some really unique, REAL photos. Cool.

  3. Did you know that the Great Pyramid wasn’t in the middle of nowhere in the desert, but is rather, like, right there next to a nice-looking park and a city? I didn’t. All the pictures make it look like it’s somewhere way off out in the middle of nowhere, not a place that you could just go for a picnic after work if you lived in Cairo.
