Profile Donald M Parrish Jr

I am a major world traveler and have been traveling internationally for 50 years. I am an active member of the Circumnavigators Club, the Travelers Century Club, MostTraveledPeople and TheBestTravelled.

Most of my trips this century have involved visits to World Heritage Sites. Now many of my trips have a primary focus on visiting World Heritage Sites. One enjoyable way to get a good perspective on a country is to visit all of its WH Sites.

Proposal for a new WHS: the Panama Canal. It is an engineering marvel that came in ahead of schedule and under budget. Now that it is one hundred years old, let's renew the push for WH status for this magnificent achievement. It continues to transit ships between the oceans every day.
