Each day that we are alive, a page of our life is turned over, never to reveal itself again.
While most of us concentrate on our career progressions, how many of us actually take time to let loose and work on those little things that keep us truly happy, such as travelling to new destinations, exploring and learning about new cultures.
Haven’t you ever sat down and excitedly wondered ‘my next holiday will be in …….! Well what are you waiting for? Quickly grab your pencil and paper and write down your very own bucket list of the places that you absolutely want to see. And then go and make that happen. For Real
So far I have been fortunate enough to experience and tick off my list
The Taj Mahal, India
The Pyramids of Giza, Egypt,
The Grand Canyon,USA,
The Auckland Bridge, NZ,
The Milford sound ,NZ
The Christ Redeemer, Brazil.
But there are still a few places mentioned below which I definitely want to see and experience before I die.
- The Northern Lights
Right there on the top of my list is what every traveller’s bucket list should include. The Northern Lights, one of nature’s spectacular phenomenon. Believe me from what I have heard from friends and family who have visited them, it’s beyond magical. The Northern lights have the power to take your breath away. The dancing lights in the north and south hemispheres are nature’s way of providing us with a free light show. I just can’t wait to witness Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights in the North)
2. Cruises- Alaskan, Mediterranean. Caribbean – All of them? Maybe…Why not?
Sailing into the sunset is one of the best ways to experience life. Cruises are definitely more fun, have more entertainment, amazing food and offer more than one destination to explore. Caribbean cruises to Antigua, Barbados, Dominica, Martinique and St Kitts, the Cayman Islands, Jamaica and Mexico, Aruba, Trinidad & Tobago offer such a wide verity of destinations to explore.
Cotton-white views, untouched ice scapes, breathtaking scenery, wildlife and some spectacular glaciers, I mean who wouldn’t want to see the spectacular fjords, glaciers and mountains along Alaska’s coastline.
From gorgeous Italy to sunny Spain, Turkey and the Greek islands of Santorini, Mykonos and Crete to destinations such as Venice, Rome and Sicily in Italy, Monte Carlo, St. Tropez and Barcelona. Mediterranean cruises offer activities for the whole family on board the cruise liner and ashore.
3. The Great Barrier Reef, Queensland, Australia
If you have a travel bucket list, I can bet my last rupee that The Great Barrier Reef will make an appearance! And why shouldn’t it? This largest living organism in the world is an intricate maze of colourful corals, unique marine life, turquoise oceans, and white coral sands. Spanning over 1400 miles, the largest collection of coral reefs in the world, can be seen from space, and it’s among one of the Seven Wonders of the Natural World. Can you think of anything more defining than swimming alongside a school of large fish? The Great Barrier Reef is the place to go diving, offering a one-of-a-kind display of underwater life.
4. Eastern Europe
What can I say about eastern Europe? Amazing cultures, budget friendly prices, unique cuisines, traditions and landscapes mixed with modern influences. And some of the “le crème de la crème” places such as Croatia, Poland, Ukraine, Romania . These are just some of the places that are a delight for wine tasting, historical sites, castles, cathedrals, museums, breathtaking natural beauty, and well-preserved architectural gems dating back to medieval times. Of course there are so many more hidden gems that will guarantee a holiday of a lifetime.
