Why?

If you enjoy spending your holidays in a club hotel in the Caribbean drinking Mai Tais, that's fine. It's your holiday and do as you please. And I personally enjoy the occasional Mai Tai on the beach, too. For me, though, spending more than a few days in the aforementioned Caribbean club hotel would be akin to purgatory. Because I like moving around, seeing new things and going to distant places.

As such I have read my fair share of guide books to figure out where to go and what to see. Eventually I noticed a few annoying biases. The authors would try to cover all regions of a country equally, judge on a relative scale and provide more details on touristy and easy to reach places. For instance, I see little reason to spend any time in Santiago de Chile apart from the international airport. Santiago is a nice city for Chile, but it's not in the same league as Mexico City. Still, any guide book you pick up on Chile will spend a full chapter on the city.

World Heritage Sites are different. They are as objective as it gets. They make you travel off the beaten path. I will always fondly remember my cab ride in a winter landscape to Holasovice. More often than not these are great sites.

Initially, I focused on quantity. And while this may seem stressful, it did give me a good picture and overview. Of late (ever since reaching the magical 300) I collect differently. Now I plan my trips on the truly great sites and pick up any site to the left and right I can visit on top.

So, should you become a whs traveler, too? My honest recommendation is to do as you please. But if you are going to country anyhow (and be it in a club hotel), then use the map provided on this site and check out if any world heritage site is nearby. It may force to travel a bit off the beaten path, but trust me, it will be worth it.

If you enjoy this...

Swiss Tectonic Arena Sardona 16-Aug-18

Swiss Tectonic Arena Sardona by Nan

In what was dubbed by some a mini meetup me and Philipp ventured into the Sardona Tectonic Area. It was a mostly sunny July day when we set out from Flims to cross the mountain range at the Pass dil Segnas and descent on the other side to Elm.

Rhaetian Railway 15-Aug-18

Rhaetian Railway by Nan

Swiss Rail is known by many for its proverbial punctuality. Having travelled a bit by train in Switzerland, though, to me another feature is the most striking one: It's reach. Swiss trains climb most mountain chains to reach even small rural valleys and remote towns in the backwaters.

Hedeby and Danevirke 11-Aug-18

Hedeby and Danevirke by Nan

Being born and raised in Schleswig Holstein, the Northern most state of Germany, I was made to visit Haithabu already at a young age. It features prominently in the local history lessons and we were taken there in elementary school as a school trip. My main memory was that it was fairly mundane: a big earthen circle and grass meadows. The reason the site is featured so heavily in the curriculum of local schools is that there actually is very little else of "early" history in Schleswig Holstein.

Cal Orck'o: Footprints of time (T) 13-Jul-18

Cal Orck'o: Footprints of time (T) by Nan

Having made my way up the hill to see the dinosaur steps at Cal Orck'o I found myself in front of a closed museum door. As so often before; I really need to work on my travel itineraries.

Now I had come to understand that even without the museum offering some context information you would be able to see the site. I was standing at the museum gate on a platform and all I could see were plenty of trucks driving in and out in what to me looked like a usual quarry, a pretty busy one at that.

Sultan Bayezid II Complex: A Center of Medical Treatment (T) 09-Jul-18

Sultan Bayezid II Complex: A Center of Medical Treatment  (T) by Nan

On the outskirts of Edirne you find a former Ottoman medical center, the Sultan Bayezid II Complex. It was founded in the 15th century and operated for 400 years. Nowadays it houses a museum showcasing the training and procedures of Ottoman medicine. Apparently, this was one of the first institutions treating psychological ailments as something other than being possessed by a demon. Or worse.
