Congratulations to Atila, who just passed Iain with the new sites he added to his page today!

I'd best come clean. With some multi-part sites (but not Vauban nor Le Corbusier) I have applied my own criterion rather flexibly and allowed myself to count a site if I have visited enough parts of it to have seen more than half the total area of all the parts, but always with a minimum of 2 parts. I hope that's clear.
And in one case I can recall, Vicenza and the Villas of the Veneto, I developed a severe case of Palladio fatigue and simply gave up well before the 50%+1 threshold. I felt that one visit was merely repeating what I had already seen several times. What a Philistine, eh?

Totally ;) And you still haven't ticked of Hamburg... And that is a simple day trip from Edinburgh ;)

And apeaking of Edinburgh, that would seem to be another easy site to complete if you wanted to, Iain. Are you planning to have that be your last site? At any rate, you and Atila are inspirations for those of us looking to learn more about the world. Happy travels!

ColvinI've always intended that Edinburgh would be my last WHS visit, as a drooling dotard in a wheelchair. Indeed, many years ago, when I was not much older than some of you reading this, I had a plan that by the end of 2017 I would have visited every WHS. I soon realised that that will never happen. Just another of life's cruel disappointments, I suppose.

And, I think, Colvin, you must be the first person ever to refer to me and "inspiration" in the same sentence, but I thank you for the compliment.

I look forward to seeing some of you in Gibraltar in September.

Congratulations to Nihal, who just passed 800 sites with the new sites inscribed during this year's World Heritage Committee meeting! Good luck with your future travels!

Iain -- I hope you have many years of travel yet before you decide to mark off Edinburgh, then. I won't be at Gibraltar in September, but I hope you all have a great get-together!
