Since 1997, I travel with a focus on visiting World Heritage Sites. I take 3 to 4 larger trips annually, and there are also many weekend trips in Europe to survive the rest of the year.

For 2020 I have fixed plans to:

  • Israel & Palestine (late May)
  • Central African Republic (late July)
  • Japan (Sept/Oct)

Slate Industry of North Wales (T)

Els Slots The Netherlands - 11-Mar-20

Slate Industry of North Wales (T)

The Slate Landscape of Northwest Wales is the UK’s nomination for 2021. It will be a serial site with 7 components. Each of the components consists of a number of ‘elements’ – the most noteworthy “physical features which embody the attributes of Outstanding Universal value”. That value is to be found in (ii) the technology transfer to continental Europe and the USA, (iv) the dramatic impact of large-scale exploitation of natural resources and (v) the legacy of the industrial workers and their settlements. Its official name has been changed from “Slate Industry ..” to “Slate Landscape”, obviously emphasizing the cultural landscape approach.

The Medieval Town of Tansen (T)

Els Slots The Netherlands - 06-Mar-20

The Medieval Town of Tansen (T)

When you would have asked me 15-20 years ago what my favorite country was, I certainly would have answered: “Nepal”. I loved its mountainous setting, its chaotic but colorful towns, the sense of adventure in the air. In 2001 I spent a month backpacking all across the country, after having made an inaugural visit in 1993. One of the stops on that one month trip was the town of Tansen: little visited by foreigners at the time and still off the beaten track in 2020. It has been lingering on Nepal’s Tentative List since 2008 under the title of ‘The Medieval Town of Tansen’ and has since been unreviewed.

Centre ancien de Sarlat (T)

Els Slots The Netherlands - 21-Feb-20

Centre ancien de Sarlat (T)

The Historic Center of Sarlat has been on France’s Tentative List since 2002. It lies in the Dordogne, in the same general area as the already inscribed Vézère Valley. Sarlat is considered to be one of the towns most representative of 14th century France, as modern times largely have passed it by and its historic district was ‘saved’ from destruction in the 1960’s by then French Minister of Culture André Malraux.

My visit was a very short one: I stayed there overnight during my visit to the Vézère Valley, but had little time to explore Sarlat itself

Cultural Landscape of Salt Towns (T)

Els Slots The Netherlands - 06-Jan-20

Cultural Landscape of Salt Towns (T)

In preparation of my Colombia trip I thought I had stumbled upon an interesting TWHS location to write about. Of the 3 Salt Towns that form a combined entry on the Tentative List, Zipaquirá is by far the most touristy one. Nemocón however is a bit more off-the-beaten track and has more authentic salt history on show. I knew from his itinerary that Solivagant aimed for Zipaquirá, so I thought I had found a different (and maybe better!) angle. Upon his return though we exchanged e-mails and it became clear that he had gone to Nemocón as well instead of Zipaquirá. To make things worse, he even wrote the kind of review which makes you wonder whether you’d want to go there at all.

Virgilio Barco Library (T)

Els Slots The Netherlands - 28-Dec-19

Virgilio Barco Library (T)

As I knew I would wake up early because of the unavoidable jet lag, I had looked for something to do in Bogotá in the early morning of my first day here. I found it with the Virgilio Barco Library, one of two TWHS in Colombia’s capital dedicated to modern architecture. It opens most days at 8 a.m. as it is a fully functioning public library.  If the library were to become a WHS in the next few years, it would be the most recently built site on the List. It only opened in December 2001.
