Possible UNESCO World Heritage sites

It’s rarely surprising to learn that a major landmark has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage site. Pick a major city in any of the 167 state parties with listed landmarks, and you’ll almost certainly recognize at least one. After all, more than 1,000 sites of natural and cultural importance have already earned protected status across the globe. It’s a big world out there, however, with no shortage of UNESCO-worthy attractions, and it can be surprising to learn what hasn’t made the list. ...

Traveling I-95 on a Road Trip from NYC to Miami

My East Coast road trip started in Connecticut. The goal: get my aunt’s car all the way down to Fort Lauderdale so she’d have it for her winter home. With my flexible work schedule and passion for road trips, saying yes to the trip just came naturally. I’ve done pieces of this road trip before, including driving through Florida a handful of times, as well as a handful of New England road trips. But the full trip I’d never done before. Google Maps made it seem pretty straightforward. From my sta...

2013 Year End Musings

Originally posted 2013-12-30 09:00:38. English: Photo of the Virginia State Capitol before renovations. (Photo credit: Wikipedia) It’s that time of year again here at The Law Office of Christopher G. Hill, PC.  Christmas has come and gone and we’re in the relatively quiet time before the new year.  What does that mean?  It means the obligatory (almost) year end reflection on everything from the success of the firm to the changes in the law over the course of 2013.

March To Mother’s Day: Sewn Into History

I am honored to be a part of the March to Mother’s Day campaign here in Virginia! Our state is packed with history, as last week’s Tom Tom Festival posts showcased. I feel very lucky to live so close to Monticello and Ash Lawn-Highland, which was President Monroe’s house. Love being an easy drive to Williamsburg and Jamestown too. Women’s history has always been close to my heart, and it was my focus of study at Davidson College, especially the women’s rights movement of the 1860s. In partner...
