A bucket list can be filled with many things, from reconnecting with old friends to making amends. But the best addition to any bucket list is a trip; and we’re not talking about a day at the beach. Where you go should be a place that calls to your soul and becomes your happy place when the world around you gets crazy.
For those who do not have such a place, maybe you need a little inspiration. For those looking to fill that blank spot on their list, here are three very different trips for anyone looking for an adventure of a lifetime.
The African Safari
This stands high on top of the ultimate vacation destination lists for many people across the globe. It’s a great trip if you love animals, but it’s also a great trip if you love nature, beauty, or fun. Take your pick of the places you want to see based on what they have to offer.
Kruger National Park: South Africa. At one of the largest and oldest game reserves in Africa, you’ll find lions, leopards, rhinos, elephants, and buffalos as well as hundreds of other mammals and diverse bird species. The landscape includes rivers, mountains, bush plains, and tropical forests; perfect for viewing from rustic or elegant accommodations.
Serengeti National Park: Tanzania. Prides of lions, millions of wildebeest, and a quarter-million zebras compete with the largest crocodiles in the world. The views are amazing, and the local luxury accommodations can’t be beat (Persian rugs, anyone?).
Volcanoes National Park: Rwanda. The scenery is unbeatable, form rainforests to volcanoes; grasslands to lakes. Hike, mountain bike, and canoe to your heart’s content. Take time to watch the mountain gorillas, or relax in luxury accommodations.
Bucket list 101: Take an amazing island trip. Bora Bora is the place to do just that. This island in French Polynesia is chock full of resorts, excitement, and relaxation. It has been called the “experience of a lifetime” and has everything you want in a vacation. The quiet and tranquil, beaches of Bora Bora are like a postcard come to life; the water really is blue, the beaches really are white, and the coastal forests really are green. Oh, and you can sleep in a bungalow that’s built on the water.
If you want water sports like jet skiing, scuba diving, and parasailing you’ll find them here. And the snorkeling it top-notch with beautiful live reefs and tropical sea life that make for amazing underwater scenery. Do not forget to bring your underwater camera!
For those who love to party and shop, bars nightclubs are open until the wee hours of the morning and the multiple galleries, gift shops, and black pearl shops will keep you busy. Better bring a Zeus Messenger Bag to carry all of your purchases.
Take your pick from some of the most amazing vineyards in the world to have a truly amazing experience. Some vineyards are located in the most gorgeous cities ever built, with plenty to do and see. The beauty of the landscape, the luxury of the accommodations, and the exquisite food will be enough to make your trip memorable. Even if you don’t like wine, you’ll love everything that a class-act vineyard has to offer. Consider:
Or, take a Rhine River Cruise in Germany to tour the gorgeous Riesling vines that cascade down the rolling hills to the river’s edge.
A bucket list trip goes beyond the basics into something boundless. Where to go depends on what you want to see and the memory you want to cherish forever.
