My Visited UNESCO World Heritage Sites

By Wednesday, March 18, 2015

This post was inspired by a post by Karisa at My Hot Pink Passport where she shares her UNESCO World Heritage List. I immediately wanted to make my own. The UNESCO World Heritage list isn't perfect (and quite eurocentric), and is always being added to and updated, but it's a great resource for finding interesting things in your current area or destination. Take a look for yourself, here, and let me know where you've been!

  1. So many historical sites close together, it makes me think I need to get to Europe.

  2. Went to party space rentals in Brooklyn for a great all-you-can-eat buffet and they held nothing back. Their food, service and mostly the staff were truly amazing. I was starving and am one of those voracious "sampling" type eaters who has to try everything in a buffet, and I couldn't make it!
