UNESCO World Heritage Sites

I have a not-so-secret ambition to see all the National Parks in the Lower 48 states. And I’m a total sucker for historical sites, especially those to do with the American Revolution. Now, what about the rest of the world?

I probably won’t get the chance to see all the UNESCO World Heritage Sites in my lifetime, but it’s still fun to dream. And I’ve already seen a few.

  • Historic District of Old Quebec – Went to the city on a high school trip, I think we wandered through it.
  • Paris, Banks of the Seine – Yep, train trip to Paris when my family lived in Madrid in the early Eighties.
  • Vatican City – On our trip to Rome, also when we lived in Madrid.
  • Piazza del Duomo, Pisa – We had to do the funny pictures where it looks like you are holding up the Leaning Tower with your hands.
  • Historic Centre of Rome – That Rome trip.
  • Venice – We went there twice when we lived in Madrid.
  • Pompeii – I was terrified that Vesuvius was going to erupt while we were there (Hey, I was about seven years old at the time).
  • Monastery and Site of the Escurial, Madrid – Well, duh.
  • Old Town of Avila – It’s not far from Madrid.
  • Historic City of Toledo – One of my favorite day trips from Madrid, I think we did it more than once.
  • Tower of London – We took the plane to London when we lived in Madrid (all our other trips were by car).
  • Independence Hall – Philly? It’s practically next door. I’ve been there twice!
  • Mammoth Cave National Park – My grandfather was from Kentucky, so we went there once so my dad could do genealogical investigations.
  • Statue of Liberty – What a horrific trip, love the statue but it definitely was not worth it.

Hmmm, still so many to see…
