UNESCO Challenge

I have always been fascinated by different places, sites, cultures and histories. UNESCO World Heritage sites are a list of places around the world that have been deemed important for the knowledge of mankind.

The UNESCO website states:

The World Heritage List includes 936 properties forming part of the cultural and natural heritage which the World Heritage Committee considers as having outstanding universal value.

These include 725 cultural, 183, natural, and 28 mixed properties in 153 States Parties.

My challenge is to try and visit as many of these sites as I can. I realise that this is not a quick or easy challenge, and may indeed be a challenge I never complete. Nevertheless, it will provide a more or less endless list of places to travel to.

All sites visited will be posted under the category ‘UNESCO’ but links to available blog posts will be available on this page, and will updated regularly.
