Matthewsharris Profile

I first caught the travel bug on an Interrail trip as a student many years ago.  This inspired me to undertake a 6 month round the world trip by land (flying over the oceans) the following year.

Over 15 years ago I discovered the UNESCO list and realised that I had visited many already.  Since then I have  become a committed WHS bagger.

Luckily l get to travel a bit for work which allows me to take a few days out to visit nearby sites and also to earn avois for additional leisure trips.   

I aim to visit about 14 WHS a year - so less a year than on average are added to the list!

Archaeological Site of Aigai

Update on the photography policy as at 01 August 2023. Photography is now allowed in the Tomb without flash.  

There is non EU discrimination on entry for kids in that it is free for children from the EU but 1/2 price for kids from elsewhere.   Although the kind ticket lady insisted that our 6 year old daughter was 5 and therefore free (which everyone found amusing except, of course, for the 6 year old)
