Ludwig von Beethoven is undoubtedly one of the finest musicians and composers who has ever lived. He is rightfully remembered with a grand white obelisk and grave. Ironically, his close friend and fine composer Franz Schubert was an attendant at his funeral and died a year later, being buried next to Beethoven. Also buried among this music royalty in Musician’s Corner of Vienna’s peaceful and leafy historic Central Cemetery (Zentralfriedhof which despite its name is a long way from the centre) are Strauss and Brahms.

Welcome to Travel Wonders
My name is Mark and I’m a keen traveller. In fact, over the last 25 years, I’ve travelled to every continent and over 80 countries. This blog is about the most memorable destinations – the places I regard as the travel wonders of the world. I’m also a keen photographer, and have taken nearly all the photos you’ll see. During my travels, I’ve met some incredible people, seen inspiring places, viewed extraordinary wildlife and scenery and had some amazing experiences, and I’m writing these stories not only to entertain but primarily to inspire others to discover their own travel wonders.
