possible date and/or venue
No, but we have to get it going again. Thanks for bringing it up again.
The date is 27/28 August or 3/4 Sept. I'd suggest to keep both free for now.
General requirements:* Should be in Europe.* Should not be site everyone has seen already.* Should be half a day's travel from major airport offering cheap flights.
A few additional thoughts could be:- travelling to a major European city, but visit a little-known / difficult to get into place (Horta-style, but maybe there are also options in the Romes, Palermos and Budapests of this world) - travelling to a place where one of us can serve as guide
a. A hard to reach site (whether geographically or because of limited tour options), or
b. A recently inscribed site (either 2015 or some site that will most likely be inscribed in 2016).
I also like the idea of choosing a location with other WHS located nearby, in case anybody who attends would like to visit more while they are in the area.
Places to go:
- St. Kilda / Orkney: would take too much time, not doable in a weekend
- Edinburgh: strong contender for some, but certainly not on 27/28 August due to Edinburgh festival
- Burgundy / Dijon
Let's rack our brains a bit more about possible destinations...
