UNESCO World Heritage Sites

Here's the list of sites that I've been to and the links to my blogposts on the respective places.
Some of the places mentioned below do not have links on them. I have visited these sites, but yet to write about it (mostly those were visited before I began blogging)!
Sometimes 1 place under UNESCO list would include several sites which are split in multiple blogposts. For eg., the 56 belfries of Belgium & France are listed as 1 in the UNESCO listing! So, here too, its listed as 1 and within brackets are the links to multiple posts as Part 1, 2 etc...

  1. Hi, Bhushavali. First of all, seeing at the list of places you have visited, I can only imagine the experience, the moment that you are right there not only simply standing or looking but also to soak in the history and the culture.

    A thought did occur to me. Except for India, you have visited Europe but not other continents. So, let me take a few seconds to invite you to come to the Philippines. We do have a lot of beaches here if that is something that is appealing to you. Furthermore, the famous travel magazine Conde Nast, I am sure you know that. For many years already, readers have consistently voted three of the islands in the Philippines as the best in the world. Each of these three - Palawan, Cebu, and Boracay, are also always in the top five.

    Going back to your travels, I love how you specifically took the time to see the Heritage Sites. There is no guarantee that even if governments and locals were to preserve/conserve a site, that it will last forever. Also, there is no telling where life will take us in the future.

    Because you can, you took the time and should continue doing so.

    Keep it up and have more fun and adventure, as well as an awakening experience in your next destination.
