My Strange Addiction: UNESCO

My Strange Addiction: UNESCO

I’ll admit it; I have a problem, a UNESCO problem. But I don’t mind. 🙂

If you’ve been reading the blog, you probably have noticed that I talk about UNESCO World Heritage Sites a lot. Well here’s the deal:

I always figured if I was going to travel somewhere new I should gather information first. My last trip to Italy 2 years ago I vaguely knew about UNESCO and I used their site as a jumping off point for what’s significant to see in Italy. Over time I realized that UNESCO is a great cultural travel tool and hence my list was born!

I encourage you to look up the UNESCO World Heritage Website – you never know what you might learn!
