Provence (October 2013)
I just spent a couple of days ticking off the 4 WHS in the Provence hotspot. They're an easy catch, but I can't understand why some people devote their whole weeks of summer holidays in this region. The Roman remains are the main draw, but I have seen far better examples elsewhere in the mediterranean.

Suriname (August 2013)
Before joining a nature tour through Guyana, I spent a few days in neighbouring Suriname. That proved to be a good choice: it's a remarkable experience to fly to the other side of the world, arrive in a tropical zone and still be able to speak Dutch all day. My first impression of Suriname is that it is pretty neat and organized, it reminded me most of Malaysia. I only had time to visit one WHS: the recommended Historic Inner City of Paramaribo.
Kassel (July 2013)
Of course I was tempted by a new WHS within driving distance of my home: the Bergpark Wilhelmshöhe with its water features and Hercules statue, near Kassel in Central Germany. So I spent this Wednesday there, nicely breaking my working week into two halves with a visit to my 506th WHS.

|Mount Qingcheng and Dujiangyan|
'My first impression while I stepped out from my bus to the gate of Dujiangyan was irritating, it was a very fast 60 kilometers high speed train ride from Chengdu North Station to Dujiangyan city within 35 minutes, but the bus from the station to the site was maybe one of the slowest buses that took exactly 35 minutes for just less than 6 Kilometers without bad traffic! However when I started to look around I was starting to impress the area.'

||Tomb of Shah Rukn-e-Alam (T)|
'Another day in Pakistan ….. another tomb! But this one was a bit special architecturally and, unusually for Pakistan, had been restored (1971-7) and still seemed in reasonable condition.'
