A Plan to Experience What the World has to Offer

There are so many wonderful things to see and do in the world, I decided I’d better get going! This is my way of setting this important travel goal for myself. And if it’s helpful to others, then all the better! If you’d like to see how I’m doing, check out:

The Goal: To visit all 50 states, 100 countries and 125 World Heritage Sites by the time I’m 60. (Thus 50+100+125=275x60)

Cheers and good luck with your life’s adventures…!

  1. 1. A Plan to Experience What the World has to Offer There are so many wonderful things to see and do in the world, I decided I’d better get going! This is my way of setting this important travel goal for myself. And if it’s helpful to others, then all the better! If you’d like to see how I’m doing, check out: http://www.slideshare.net/drchrisstout1/the-list-27414319 Cheers and good luck with your life’s adventures…! Chris The Goal: To visit all 50 states, 100 countries and 125 World Heritage Sites by the time I’m 60. (Thus 50+100+125=275x60) 50 States 50 United States Of America …and… Fortunately, There are over the 1000 World Heritage Sites 97 World Heritage Sites + 125 World Heritage Sites 125 + 100 Countries = 275 Counties Based on the Century Club Criteria So far, I have… Been to 50(!) (Check!) States …and The Travelers’ Century Club’s maintains an official list of countries and territories. Although some are not actually countries in their own right, they have been included because they are removed from the parent country, either geographically, politically or ethnologically. Anyone who has visited 100 or more of the places cataloged is eligible to join. What are World Heritage Sites? To be included on the World Heritage List, sites must be of outstanding universal value and meet at least one out of ten selection criteria:  to represent a masterpiece of human creative genius;  to exhibit an important interchange of human values, over a span of time or within a cultural area of the world, on developments in architecture or technology, monumental arts, town-planning or landscape design;  to bear a unique or at least exceptional testimony to a cultural tradition or to a civilization which is living or which has disappeared;  to be an outstanding example of a type of building, architectural or technological ensemble or landscape which illustrates (a) significant stage(s) in human history;  to be an outstanding example of a traditional human settlement, land-use, or sea-use which is representative of a culture (or cultures), or human interaction with the environment especially when it has become vulnerable under the impact of irreversible change;  to be directly or tangibly associated with events or living traditions, with ideas, or with beliefs, with artistic and literary works of outstanding universal significance. (The Committee considers that this criterion should preferably be used in conjunction with other criteria);  to contain superlative natural phenomena or areas of exceptional natural beauty and aesthetic importance;  to be outstanding examples representing major stages of earth's history, including the record of life, significant on-going geological processes in the development of landforms, or significant geomorphic or physiographic features;  to be outstanding examples representing significant on-going ecological and biological processes in the evolution and development of terrestrial, fresh water, coastal and marine ecosystems and communities of plants and animals;  to contain the most important and significant natural habitats for in-situ conservation of biological diversity, including those containing threatened species of outstanding universal value from the point of view of science or conservation. 100 124 Countries
