Places Visited (World Heritage Sites)

These are the World Heritage Sites we’ve visited; the full list is here. This only counts places we’ve been together – there may be others we’ve seen separately. When we’ve only seen part of a place, I’ve added a note in brackets – for example, we haven’t seen all of the historic belfries of Belgium and France, but we did climb to the top of the one in Brugges. The year is parentheses marks when each site was declared a World Heritage Site
