We've all heard of the term 'Kicking the bucket'. Thinking of all the things you want to do, and places you want to visit before you take your last breath is something most of us think about at least once. Making a Bucket List is something that many people do so that they accomplish all the things they've wanted to do in their lives whilst they still have time. There are so many activities to put on a bucket list, but we're going to focus on all the places to visit before you die.

Summing it all up: There is such a huge world out there to discover, however getting to visit most of it is merely a dream for many of us. If you make a list of all the places you wish to visit and tick one of every year or two then you'll be well on your way to completing your bucket list. Also, tick off a few on each trip if you can swing it. Be adventurous, be creative with choice and be bold and brave.
