UNESCO Designs

Don’t misread the title of this page. I dislike the term ‘bucket list’ because it emphasizes the desire to achieve these goals prior to death. One should not simply pursue an objective, or seek an adventure because they are fearful of the imminent shadow of the reaper, but because they want to live. These historic sites are not pursued merely because I want to see the history and heritage before I pass on to another world, but because I want to embrace the atmosphere and culture as they are integrated into my everyday life.
