What’s Your Number?: UN World Heritage Sites

I’ve been trying to use the UN World Heritage Site list (Website Here) as a rough guide of the sites to see when I’m visiting different countries. It’s not as easy at it sounds and pretty much requires a map of the sites and lots of cross referencing to make sure I’m not missing any.

The UN World Heritage sites are places that are deemed to have special cultural or physical significance. For the most part, the list corresponds with places that I already was planning on seeing. I counted and from the list, it looks like we are going to get to cross 20 sites off our list on our honeymoon in September! Pretty exciting since I’ve only checked 7 off the list so far!!!
