Bucket lists tend to be comprised of a lot of really similar wishes. The most popular tend to be things like breaking a world record, going skydiving or swimming with dolphins. But there’s actually one type of bucket list wish which appears quite often, yet which never seems to get worn out. Travelling is one of those universal desires that easily captures the imagination, and the majority of people will list some kind of travel plan on their ultimate bucket list. If you’re busy writing your own bucket list, you may want to consider including some of the following destinations:
The Huffington Post listed Kosrae as one of their top bucket list destinations and it’s easy to see why. This beautiful, tiny island in the Pacific Ocean is a tranquil, unspoilt paradise, and is a firm favourite with eco-tourists who help to keep the area unspoilt. If you’re a fan of the great outdoors and have even a passing interest in scuba diving, Kosrae should be the place for you.
Kynance Cove, Cornwall
A bit closer to home is the UK’s very own Kynance Cove, which is often included in lists of the top beaches to visit in the world. Impressive rock formations tower over the pristine golden beach, creating explorable caves and tunnels which are sure to intrigue amateur and professional cavers alike. Nature lovers will appreciate the fact that Kynance is situated in a protected wildlife reserve, and marine life enthusiasts will have a whale of a time spotting basking sharks, dolphins and seals.
The Norwegian Fjords
The Norwegian Fjords are globally recognised as being some of the most beautiful waterways in the world. Ideal for travellers who want to relax amid stunning surroundings, the Fjords offer the kind of reverential atmosphere that’s almost impossible to experience anywhere else. The best way to travel these majestic waterways is on a Hurtigruten Pluss cruise liner in winter, when you will be better able to see the glorious colours of the Aurora Borealis from the deck of the deck of the ship.
Salar de Uyuni, Bolivia
For those with a more existential mind-set, as people making bucket lists often tend to be, there can be no better sight than the Salar de Uyuni – the world’s largest salt flat. After rainfall the water lies very still atop the hard ground, creating a perfectly still mirror effect which stretches out for miles in every direction. A truly unique experience, for those seeking something a little bit different.
