10 UNIQUE BUCKET LIST IDEAS

As leaving day draws closer we have found ourselves dreaming of places we want to see and adventures we want to experience during our travels. So we compiled a list of our top 10 pick of wonderful and breathtaking places we have on our bucket list, that are a little unique and a little different from the norm.

10. Salar De Uyuni, Bolivia

One of the worlds largest salt flat can be found in Salar De Uyuni in central South America. It is covered in a layer of salt crust that is very flat and if you head down here in November, the Salar becomes a breeding ground for the Pink Andean flamingos.

Could this also be the worlds largest mirror?

9. Santorini, Greece

The intricate, beautiful and highly photographed architecture of Santorini is breathtaking and is one place that we must visit in person. Combine Santorinis views with its mediterranean climate, this easily made it onto our bucket list.

8. Machu Pichu, Peru

Also known as “The Lost City”, we would love to hike this world wonder. The Inca Trail takes about 3 to 5 days to complete and spans for 45km, but it will all be worth it to sit and stare out at this marvel.

7. Igloo Village, Finland

Seeing the Northern Lights is a natural wonder that we would like to see in our 20s and what an amazing way to view them than inside your very own igloo.

6. Marble Caves, Chile

These caves can only be travelled to by boat and only when the weather is nice and the water is still. It is said that the light show caused by the reflection of the turquoise water is unparalleled to anywhere else in the world.

5. Holi Colour Festival in India, Nepal

This spring Hindu festival is held in India and involves celebrating love by throwing dry colourful powder at everyone around you. The best part – anyone can attend, including travellers and non-Hindus.

4. Jellyfish Lake, Palau

If you are daring enough you can jump straight into Palau’s jelly fish infested water and live to tell the tale. Over the course of a millennia, resident jellyfish have completely lost their sting due to the lack of predators to fight off.

3. Cinque Terre, Italy

Probably the worlds most colourful and enchanting coastal villages it’s something you would picture being in a fairytale or a picture book. Do you really need another excuse to visit Italy?

2. Lantern Festival, Taiwan

This annual event happens on the last day of the Lunar New Year and involves letting go of ones past in preparation for the new year through the symbolisation of the lanterns floating away.

1. Tree Camping California, USA

Finally, we want to take camping to the next level, literally. This can be done in most countries, but it is in Elk, California that we wish to tree camp due to the beautiful surrounding scenery.
