Last week, UNESCO decided on new properties for its World Heritage list, properties to place on the danger list and even one to delist.
The folks at TripAdvisor have listed their 2008 mapmakers: Dubai, Le Val, Beijing, Johannesburg, Las Vegas, Chicago, Wasilla – and Oslo.
8 places I’d rather be right now: Spitsbergen, Australia, Devonport (New Zealand), Singapore, Buenos Aires, Paris, Cape Town and Namibia.
We stayed in plenty of hotels in 2008, some good, some not so good, some blah. Here are my fave hotels of 2008 – in no particular order.
Travels of 2008 – many old faves plus some new countries: Macedonia, Kosovo, Moldova, Transdniestr, PEI, Wales, Isle of Man, Srpska and more.
An unexpected recommendation is Sylt. All of a sudden, I want to go to this windy German North Sea island. Where do you want to go in 2008?
