World Heritage: Year in Review

Looking at last year's update of five sites inspired me to take stock of this year's total.

Looks like it's five again!

  1. In early April, I went to Cologne and saw the cathedral.
  2. Later that month, Christina and I headed to New York and took in the Statue of Liberty.
  3. In June, I traveled to Russia and saw St. Petersburg.
  4. In September, we went to England. One World Heritage Site we saw was the Blaenavon Industrial Landscape.
  5. Another was the Ironbridge Gorge.

For the second year in a row, Christina made it to a site I missed (which is only fair, given I made it to two she missed), Suzhou. If only I didn't have to go to these conferences...I wouldn't be traveling so much in the first place, I guess.

That brings me to 34 sites. Over 4%, finally! At this pace, I probably have a couple more years to go before I hit 5%.
