Places to visit before you kick the bucket...


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. 


Popular with the masses:  There are some obvious choices when starting this list and they are as follows:  

Egypt's Pyramids of Giza   

Visit the Galapagos Islands

Trek to Machu Picchu     

Visit the Grand Canyon

Marvel at the Taj Mahal             

Dive the Great Barrier Reef 

Walk the Great Wall of China 

See the Northern Lights

Take an ice-cold dip in Canada's majestic Lake Louise


Cities with the goods:  Don't forget about major cities that have so much culture and amazing architecture that you can wander around for hours if not days.  Some popular choices are:

- Paris - London - New York City - Las Vegas - Moscow - Tokyo - Istanbul - Shanghai - Venice - Rio De Janiro - Rome - Athens - Amsterdam - Bangkok - Prague - Cape Town - just to name a few..

Something a little more obscure:  Why visit the same place as everyone else when you can really think outside the box and experience something unique.  Why not consider some of these more unusual destinations:

Antarctica - For the people that don't mind the cold

Mt Everest base camp - For the fit and healthy

Iceland - A little bit of something magical

Petra in Jordan - Mesmerizing rock faced city

Patagonia - For untouched wilderness

Havana, Cuba - A little bit of old world charm 

Bhutan -  For an untouched cultural experience

Sea of stars, Vaadhoo Island Maldives - Marvel at the stars on the sand

Jacobs Well, Texas - For a feeling of another world

Antelope Canyon, Arizona - Mystical rock formations

Marble Caves, Chile Chico, Chile - Some glacial splendor

Iguazu Falls, Brazil - Bigger than Niagara

Tulip Fields, Amsterdam, Netherlands - Fields and fields of bright colour.

Monument Valley, USA - Wild West imagery

Giant Causeway, Northern Island - Volcanic column phenomenon

Avatar Hallelujah Mountain, Hunan, China - Named after the film 'Avatar'

Grand Prismatic Spring, Yellowstone National Park,Wyoming, USA -Kaleidoscope of colour

Tundras of Mongolia - Sparse beauty



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.  


Most of all have fun and savor the moment..
