Yea, I do agree with you Becky. Have you been to any of these places listed above?
Thanks for bringing the additions to our attention. I was pleased to see two sites I’ve visited – Mount Etna and Al Zubarah – on the list.
Yes Karen, both of them are wonderful sites. I would like to see Kaesong in N.Korea more than any other site.
Good luck making it to North Korea! I would love to go there too, I just don’t know if I would feel safe enough there…
N.Korea has always been on top of my bucket list.
these are amazing tips and advise thanks for sharing it
I really like such kind of photo-documentary
