I have had this absolute burning desire to do a tour of the world! We spend our whole lives planning our trips and making a bucket list, but sadly only a few of us actually work towards crossing off that bucket list.
But don’t worry, we have got you covered! Planning this ultimate bucket list with us will get you one step closer to your traveling dreams.
From wildlife safaris in Kenya to wandering the romantic streets of Paris, this ultimate bucket list has something for every intrepid globetrotter in the world.
See the Northern lights
The Northern Lights are one of nature’s great displays: a mysterious, multicolored show in which the night sky is suddenly lit up with a wondrous glow that twists and swirls like a heavenly lava lamp, “says Nigel Tisdall, Telegraph Travel’s Northern Lights expert.
Northern Norway is amongst the most comfortable and interesting places to see the northern lights as hundreds of thousands of people live in this huge geographical area.
It is breathtakingly beautiful and the whole Arctic experience; the unbelievable colors in the sky, is definitely a sight you do not want to miss.
Wildlife Safari in Kenya
Kenya is one of Africa’s prime game viewing areas, renowned for its dramatic scenery, magnificent game parks and abundant wildlife. Its landscape is populated with diverse species of animals. From majestic herds of elephants to elegant packs of cheetahs, Kenya is a paradise for wildlife enthusiasts and family excursions. Besides the exotic animal safari, Kenya has some of the most alluring landscapes in the world. The national park is covered with tall grasses and lush swamps are scattered throughout. Rivers and streams add a whole new dimension to the landscapes pleasing aesthetics.
See the Taj Mahal
Located in the city of Agra, in India, it is one of the wonders of the World. It is the epic story that draws millions of visitors to it each year, more than the actual structure. The Taj Mahal was erected by Shah Jahan in honor of his wife Mumtaz Mahal who died during the birth of their fourteenth child. We recommend visiting the Taj Mahal first thing in the morning at sunrise when the crowds are sparse and the rising sun glows warmly against the white marble structure.
Cherry Blossom Season in Japan
Hanami is the traditional Japanese custom of ‘flower viewing’ and takes place during the Cherry Blossom season of the year from February to May. The Sakura is a symbol of Japan and thousands of people from all over the world flock to the country to catch a glimpse and celebrate the spring season.
It’s a breathtaking sight with an even deeper meaning. The cherry blossom represents the fragility and the beauty of life. It’s a reminder that life is almost overwhelmingly beautiful but that it’s also tragically short. However, it is a must to add to your bucket list!
Island hopping in Greece
The most beautiful Greek Island has to be Santorini. You might feel like you’ve already been there; you’re bound to have seen the iconic shots of doomed white-washed houses set against the bright blue sea. It’s even better in person; famous for its dramatic views, stunning sunsets from Oia town, the strange white aubergine, the town of Thira and naturally its very own active volcano. One of the most ancient vineyards of the world has been developed on this island. Be sure to explore the areas outside of the towns. There is beautiful countryside where tradition still survives; cave houses, gardens, and tiny churches to be discovered.
Gondola in Venice
There are many reasons for which Venice is famous in the whole world, but few are as well known and evocative as the Venetian Gondolas.
While we know that some are happy just to admire and take pictures of these beautiful Venetian boats, we also know that many visitors are thrilled to experience a gondola ride! You can get your own private tour of the beautiful city of Venice. And the view is even better at night. Of course, if you want to see specific landmarks such as the Bridge of Sighs or the Rialto Bridge, you should take a gondola in the stations next to these famous areas. Venice, the floating city will never disappoint you!
