Congratulations Thomas, I hope there wasn't too much of a hangover from celebrating.

Another one to join the 800+ club today: his nickname is Traveler1010, he comes from Singapore and was just recently made aware of this website.

Information: according to the site Nomad Mania, the biggest visitor of world heritage is the Chinese Ke Yin He with 1102 WHS seen, in front of the Turkish Atila Ege.

That means he would only have missed 19. And if I interpret his Regions score well, he has not visited Sicily for example, or large parts of Iran and Israel.

Will ask Thomas B. about it....

Sicily alone is 7. Hard pressed to see how you can have 1102 without it.

I have stated this before, but I feel there is a threshold where verification of some form should be required.

A throughly well traveled individual, though I would be sceptical of that WHS number.

Of course his map may not be fully up to date, but I would make it that there are 18 sites in Italy that he couldn't have visited based on it.

Add in missing the Croatian coast and I'm already at 25 missing sites.

So the data doesn't correlate with the claim at least.

What are those 19 by any chance? There are quite a few that are only for diving, e.g. Cocos, Aldabra, Revillagigedo Islands, I suppose Bikini Atoll as well. Charting a boat/flight just for the tick might be possible if you got the money to burn. Maybe he is a diver but the demo doesn't fit. Plus there is Wrangel Island, I suppose we count Surtsey with a boat-trip, Gough and the INACCESSIBLE islands, the French Austral Lands that take 30 days by boat or whatever. I think there are 30+ that even us die-hard traveler would have serious issues with, SGang Gwaay is pretty much canoe-only. Now this is all without mentioning that the person is a Chinese national and they have limited visa access to many countries, e.g. PNG takes 3 months to get a tourist visa which would be a huge issue unless he's got a second passport. Lastly he's keeping up with TWHS the entire time so get all of last years addition so quickly, especially off-the-beaten track like Coal Mining Heritage of Sawahlunto? I don't think so or at least he would maybe come visit here and say hi, right? If so I'd be very impressed and would like to hear about travel tips to those hard-to-reach places.

Just saying.

Zoe, how did you manage to go to Los Katios National Park in Colombia ? I could not say it is the most difficult to get site in the world but it is pretty complicated to get there, at laest the core zone of the park. Maybe the situation has changed a little bit since I was there (November, 2011) so any more recent tips would be helpful

It's actually really easy to get there as there are boat transports from Turbo that follow the Atrato river through the NP. You will never set foot on land but I count it and much more so than a fly-over.
