Our UNESCO World Heritage List

Without realizing it, we’d visited many of the UNESCO World Heritage Sites on our travels. These are places that are listed by United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) as of special cultural or physical significance. Now as we travel, we make a point to try to visit more of these sites.

Visiting these sites isn’t about just checking places off a list and we’ve not got a specific time frame we want to see them in. UNESCO World Heritage sites are simply a guide to help us visit some of the most culturally significant places on our planet and we hope to some day see them all one day.
