This year it just happened to fall on Easter Monday!
The International Day For Monuments and Sites.
The day is observed to raise awareness about the cultural heritage that we see around us. It is also aimed at promoting historical monuments and sites through which we can actually preserve the cultural integrity of a community as well.
If you click on this link, it will take you to the UNESCO World Heritage List. There are 1154″properites”, funny, I thought that there would have been more than that. It’s even got a little legend key on the side there.
Do you have any World Heritage Sites that you would love to visit, or maybe you already have?
I do want to see all the ones on this last. Planetware.com – 18 Top World Heritage Sites. I really do want to see the Pyramids and the Sphynx, but everyone I know whose gone there. Gets HORRIBLE stomach bugs and it does put me off. Today, these giant monuments are the sole surviving member of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World.
Quiet honestly, the others aren’t doing so bad. I believe they mean, like Stonehenge that’s doing alright. I just don’t know if it was ever included in the Ancient Seven?
I would LOVE to visit Athens though. That is like my ultimate place. It was Disney, but you know, I think Athens Greece would much more enlightening to me. I love Ancient Greece so much, all the Gods and Goddesses, so much more human, the stories. I do feel like you’d need a good week there…One day…
For this edition of Fact Friday I thought that I would introduce you to some sites that I have used and learned about through my Studies. If you are curious about our world or are stuck for looking for some information to study up on a topic…Look here!
*I do not own or create any of these sites*
From fun facts to scientific information, this page has everything that you want to know about. Some of the most popular topics are:
“What colour are the colours of your eyes when you shut them” and
“Does drinking something hot on a hot day cool you down”.
I love going to this site because it literally is the meaning of “You learn something new every day”.
