Iain Jackson - Edinburgh, United Kingdom

About Me:

My travelling for more than 20 years has been shaped by my desire to visit World Heritage Sites. I was able to retire from work early, in 1992, and since then I have made 3 or 4 trips every year visiting sites. Nevertheless because new sites are inscribed every year there are as many now which I have not visited as there were when I started in 1988. After every visit I have written by hand a 2 page account of my visit noting the date, weather conditions, names of any companions,a description of the site and my impressions of it.

My Favorite Places:

Impossible to say but places I think under-rated include Colombia and Panama, some parts of the former Soviet Union such as Armenia and Georgia, Uganda and Japan.
