The “Pin Your Passion Travel Series” continues this month featuring ten places of “Historical Significance” NOT located in the United States of America. If you missed out on what the Pin Your Passion Travel Series is you can head back to the first piece in this series HERE which outlines my motivation for it.
What does historical significance mean to me and who would this be a good idea to consider for international trips or portions of them?
To me it’s learning about the world. Seeing what has happened and laying witness to it. Maybe not even agreeing or completely understanding it but having the perspective to get “into the shoes” of where it occurred.
The list that I chose could have been simply war memorials & religious sanctuaries. To me there is too much war in the world and it’s a somber reminder of our irrational decision making as human beings. I can only visit so many churches or temples on a trip before they all look the same, and I am a spiritual person. So with those caveats I chose to limit those two categories to only fill a small portion of this list.
Hopefully this list sparks new ideas of places to travel to and what you are going to do and see when traveling there. Bon voyage my friends!
