We made it to our first 50 UNESCO World Heritage Sites (check out our progress with sites 1 to 50 here!) but we’re not finished yet! There are another 1,002 UNESCO World Heritage Sites dotted across the world and it’s our mission to visit as many as possible! We were aiming to make it to our next 50 UNESCO sites and making it 100 visited in total, in 2016 and we did it half way through the year! Follow our progress below and check out our visits to UNESCOs 101 to 150 here!

  1. I DO share your obsession for UNESCO sites! Well done you guys for visiting as many as you have. I’m only up to about 30 so far and my goal is to visit 500 in my lifetime. At the beginning of 2015 I set myself a goal to visit 16 (as I figure I have to visit an average of 16/year to reach 500) and I thought it was quite a long shot. But guess what! I’m scheduled to see 15 this year! Excited? You betcha. :-)

    Definitely adding you guys to my blog reader to keep up with your progress.

    Happy Travels!

    • 15 is awesome Stacey! We had a good year for UNESCO’s, hoping to make it to 100 next year! Have Denmark and France trips lined up in the next few weeks so hopefully add a few more to our collection!
