Larry F Profile

Avid travler (60+ countries and counting), business & technology enthusiast, and amateur anthropologist.

Among the WHS I've visited:

Favorite - Tie between Galapagos (Ecuador) and Tikal (Guatemala)

Least favorite - Singapore Botanical Garden - it was a beautiful garden, but didn't understand the WH significance.  That said, Singapore itself deserves a WH nomination, for its melting pot of cultures, Gardens by the Bay, and being the epitome of a modern city state.

Most inaccessible - Nan Madol (Micronesia) - from San Francisco, it took 5 flights via Honolulu, Majuro, Kwajalein, and Kosrae, a 2-hr car ride to the opposite side of Pohnpei and a small canal crossing by foot

Most intrigued - Hal Saflieni Hypogeum (Malta) - Wow!  How did people build this mega-monument 5000 years ago, to be so well preserved and only so recently rediscovered. A true time capsule and gold-mine for neolithic cultures!
