Wood Buffalo National Park 22-Aug-18

Wood Buffalo National Park by Zoe Sheng

Not one of the more remote places in Canada but still quite a lengthy drive from Edmonton unless you want to fork out the high sum to fly directly to Fort Smith (FS) and rent a car from there (I assume that is possible). It takes around 13-14h of mainly boring straight roads from Edmonton with only a few things to do on the way (60th parallel border crossing into NWT, Twin Falls, maybe Hay River if you want a longer stopover). Expect to spend at least two days here to see various parts of nature offered, more of you want to kayak.

Yukon Ice Patches (T) 20-Aug-18

Yukon Ice Patches (T) by Zoe Sheng

When I first read Canada wants to inscribe ice patches I already figured something crazy must be behind this site, or let’s call it “sites”. Ice patches are not unique to the Yukon at all. That is for me the first problem. Of this is a pioneer inscription that would later expand to other areas I find it the wrong approach. Secondly, the ice patches in the Yukon are not just in the Carcross/Tagish First Nation hunting grounds. Thirdly this would also extend the sites into the US side which again means for me the entire area should be considered before attempting this inscription. Lastly, and for the most worrisome of all, ice patches are disappearing due to environment changes. That would essentially leave the hunting ground artifacts and possibly keep that as a worthy inscription. Lake Mungo in Australia is a similar example of such a cultural site.

Papahanaumokuakea 18-Aug-18

Papahanaumokuakea by Zoe Sheng

I wasn’t sure I had been to this place until I opened up the map on the UNESCO website with a great overview of islands. It also all made sense: the Midway Atoll is the only accessible place of the entire monument. This is not Hawaii but instead Unincorporated Territory.

Mount Hamiguitan 13-Aug-18

Mount Hamiguitan by Zoe Sheng

Hamiguitan is a good 3½h by jeepney from the nearest town Davao. It is not an easy journey and you also need to ensure the driver drops you off at the junction to the visitor center and then still take a tricycle for the rest of the way. As accommodation is limited I recommend doing this really early morning and going back to Davao in the afternoon already. I can see why this is not of the more visited places as Mindanao is still considered somewhat unsafe in the southwest and tourism has almost nothing going on here. I also looked into renting a car but there is nothing.

Prehistoric Cave Sites in Maros-Pangkep (T) 31-Jul-18

Prehistoric Cave Sites in Maros-Pangkep (T) by Zoe Sheng

Little do they know that I came here as a little girl, stenciled all over the place and now it's considered prehistoric... Okay so not really. They claim the inverted hand prints are older than anything around the world (read: Spain).
