About

My name is Stephanie Craig. In 1990, at the age of six, I read my first American Girl Dolls book (it was Meet Felicity). In a rose-pink bedroom in Oklahoma, I learned about what life was like in Colonial Virginia. I was hooked.

 

Since then, my love of history has been my favorite hobby, leading me to travel all over the world to experience the places and peoples I have read about. I seek out important architecture, artworks, UNESCO World Heritage sites, and monuments-the places that bring history to life.

 

Through my travels, I have gone from history lover to amateur historian, sharing photographs and stories from far-away places.

 

To date, I have visited 85 UNESCO World heritage sites spread across 47 countries and 4 continents. However, there are many, many more visits to come.

 

Some of my favorite historic sites:

  • Standing on top of the city walls in Istanbul
  • Visiting the battlefield of Gettysburg
  • Touring the White House twice
  • Seeing the Soviet break-away republic Transnistria
  • Being haunted by the dual terror regimes of the Nazis and the Communists in the Terror House in Budapest
  • Seeing the layers of civilizations atop the Citadel in Amman, Jordan
  • Being given the keys to a 14th century chapel in the Troodos Mountains in Cyprus
