My travel photos and stories

"Heritage is our legacy from the past, what we live with today, and what we pass on to future generations. Our cultural and natural heritage are both irreplaceable sources of life and inspiration." (from UNESCO site)

I do enjoy visiting UNESCO World Heritage Sites all over the globe. All are different and unique in their own way!
Although I list them here on my website, I do not treat them as a 'list' in real life and trying to tick of each and every one of them. Quite a few of them I actually visited, not being fully aware that they are UNESCO sites. But knowing it afterwards, they are deservingly so.
It has been an interesting journey however to list the ones that I have visited, and read about the many remaining ones, that maybe one day I might visit as well.
