Even though I have a normal bucket list, I also want to share my UNESCO World Heritage bucket list. I’m a real fan of it and can’t wait to discover most of them in my lifetime. I think everyone have at least seen or visited one of them, because you don’t always know that it is declared as one of them. I saw already a few of them and I didn’t even know that it belongs to the UNESCO World Heritage.
