Wanderlust

http://dailypost.wordpress.com/dp_prompt/the-wanderer/

My love for travel is second only to water; my Mother worked at the Consulate for our Island so I was exposed to the idea of this vast world quite early.

It’s always been my dream to visit all of the UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

Not sure what a UNESCO Heritage Site is?
Criteria for Selection: http://whc.unesco.org/en/criteria/

To be included on the World Heritage List, sites must be of outstanding universal value and meet at least one out of ten selection criteria. These criteria are explained in the Operational Guidelines for the Implementation of the World Heritage Convention which, besides the text of the Convention, is the main working tool on World Heritage. The criteria are regularly revised by the Committee to reflect the evolution of the World Heritage concept itself.

 

View list by Country: http://whc.unesco.org/en/list/

Since I don’t currently have the disposable income to travel the world to fulfill this dream; my revised plan of action is to start with more local sites and work my way up.

I’m particularly interested in the sites listed in the Caribbean and South America as it would also be a part of my own culture that I’m learning in the process.

Before I start on the local (U.S.) World Heritage Sites; I do need to explore NYC a bit and possibly find a travel buddy.

Any volunteers?
