Ras al Had Turtle Reserve and Ras al Jinz (T)

Persian Globetrotter Spain - Iran - 18-Dec-23

Arriving from Muscat with a driver booked in Muscat, I made a short stop in the town of Sur to admire the old Dhowns shipyard. Ras al Had is a small town notable for its old fortress, a small WWII airfield, some archaeological sites and obviously the turtle nesting beaches. The turtle reserve in Ras al Hadd, Oman, is known to be a nesting site for green and hawksbill turtles.

It was a great experience to be able to visit the nesting turtles during the night, always with the established means of respect towards these animals, (avoid speaking loudly, making sudden movements and direct lighting), the next day I was able to snorkel among dozens of turtles, flying fish and tunas, at night you can also see luminescent plankton on the water's edges.

Orheiul Vechi (T)

Persian Globetrotter Spain - Iran - 18-Dec-23

My visit to Orhei Vechi was made in October 2023, I had already been touring Moldova for several days, and I have to say that in general Moldova, unlike what many people think, is a country that has many interesting places to offer, I find it incredible that Moldova only has the ridiculous Struve Geodesic Arc as the only WHS.
Orhei Vechi is undoubtedly one of those places that should be inscribed within the world heritage of Moldova.

To get to Orhei Vechi I took a Marshrutka from the central bus station of Chisinau towards [...]

Noréas de Hama (T)

Persian Globetrotter Spain - Iran - 29-Nov-23

In March 2020 I visited Hama on the way to Aleppo, there are seventeen Wheels in Hama, I was able to visit the most central ones in the main squarethe Norias are centuries old and have survived many wars including the last one. They are admirable to see, the people of Hama go to spend time and have picnics and smoke Sisha around them. If UNESCO inscribed the Hama Waterwheels, they would have greater conservation and protection.

Zadar - Episcopal complex (T)

Persian Globetrotter Spain - Iran - 29-Nov-23

Zadar was the first city I visited in Croatia, in the middle of the pandemic, so I was able to enjoy the city without crowds.

The city of Zadar itself is already very beautiful both for its location facing the sea and for its architecture, the area of ​​the Roman Forum, with the Cathedral and the remains of Roman and pre-Roman ruins around it, are places that deserve an inscription.

Churches of Moldavia

Persian Globetrotter Spain - Iran - 29-Nov-23

I visited the Churches of Bucovina on my trip to Romania in 2023. In my opinion it is one of the best WHS in Romania. Are Orthodox churches, colorful inside and outside with frescoes depicting biblical stories. I was able to visit four (Voronet, Humor, Sucevita and Moldovita + the Putna Monastery, which is not a UNESCO Site but is an important pilgrimage center in Romania. Votonet and Humor can be visited by electric bus from Gura Humurului, the rest I stayed at Casa Popa in Gura Humurului where the owner of the house offered to drive his car to the monasteries. I recommend staying at that accommodation. Of the four I consider Sucevita and Moldovita the most favorites.
