Michiel Dekker Profile

When I was young my parents used to drag me along to all these boring towns in France and Belgium. Somehow this exposure to culture did manage to rub off on me and now I'm doing the same to my daughter.
I managed to do two around the world trips during which I visited many heritage sites. It started out as an innocent way to visit the places that are considered important by the country itself, but it has evolved into an obsessive hobby! ;)
It seems that the quest to visit all world heritage sites will be near impossible, but nevertheless my wife, my daughter and me battle on bravely.

Ephesus Michiel Dekker

Beautiful site with a lot of history. Also the site of one of the seven wonders of the world; the Temple of Artemis (eventhough not much remains of this site).

Worth a visit and worthy to be a World Heritage Site.

Frontiers of the Roman Empire (extension) (T) Michiel Dekker

Visited the site and was not impressed...

I really wonder why this site is on the tentative list of Unesco World Heritage... Must say that the site is important to Dutch archaeology/history/heritage, but this site does not have a significance for world heritage. A backwater Roman settlement of which hardly anything remains?? The submission text claims "the remains ... are extremely well preserved"; for Dutch standards: yes. For European standards: NO!
