UNESCO World Heritage Sites

UNESCO World Heritage Sites are some of my favourite places to visit when I travel. I enjoy learning about history, discovering how the ways of life and innovations of our ancestors have shaped our present-day society. I love visiting places that are rich in culture and deeply appreciate the beautiful things in our world, both natural and manmade.

UNESCO World Heritage Sites encompass many of the things I love so much about travelling. They represent the very best of the world in terms of our global heritage.

UNESCO has made it their mission to preserve and protect our cultural and natural heritage for future generations. They have carefully selected a unique and diverse collection of properties for conservation that are of outstanding value to humanity.

What I love most about UNESCO World Heritage Sites, is that they are considered to “belong to all the peoples of the world, irrespective of the territory on which they are located” (UNESCO- About World Heritage). I believe World Heritage Sites contribute to the idea that we are a global community and strengthen our appreciation of different cultures and environments around the world.

Our World Heritage Sites

Here is a list of all the UNESCO World Heritage Sites that either Mike or I have visited during our travels. I’ve been to all the places on this list, but Mike has missed out on some since I did a lot of travelling before we met.

We haven’t written about all these destinations, but those we have featured on the blog include a link to the article(s). This page will be updated as we visit more World Heritage Sites and write about our experiences, so feel free to check back every so often!
