England- Stonehenge from a distance


The building of Stonehenge may predate any known religion, and seeing it in person can be quite humbling—just as long as you bring binoculars and elbow pads. Sadly, the popular site has been overrun by tourists, making it nearly impossible to see the stones up close. However, some would argue that the stones are impressive at any distance, no matter how far back they keep moving sightseers. Admission costs £6.90 (about $10.63 U.S.; check for current exchange rates) per person, and includes an audio tour.
