World Heritage: 2007 in Review


Well, another year is drawing to a close, and time for me to take stock of my visits to World Heritage sites. (See 2006 or 2005.)

Five appears to be my lucky number. For the third year in a row, I visited five sites.

  1. In early May, I visited Tallinn, Estonia.
  2. In late May, I visited Barcelona, including the works of Gaudí ...
  3. ...and the Palau de la Música Catalana.
  4. In September, I visited Schönbrunn in Vienna...
  5. As well as Vienna's historic city center.


I also got a bonus site...the Sydney Opera House, which Christina and I visited in 2002, got listed. So that puts me at 40.

2008 is a promising year. I have the potential to add sites in Australia, Turkey, the UK and the US. Maybe I'll break the string of fives...
