Time for some bucket list inspiration: Consider these ideas

We can all agree, that we can often get stuck in a rut when it comes to booking our vacations. We can often prefer to stick with what we know, after all, for some a vacation only happens just once a year. So it has to be right first time. But, because we can be a little fearful of the unknown, we can be less inclined to revert to our bucket lists and try somewhere new, even though we all would love to visit some of these places or do some of these things at some point in our lives. With that in mind, here are some of once in a lifetime experiences that are worthy of your bucket list, hopefully inspiring you to consider something a little different for this years vacation.

Witness the Northern Lights

One of the most spectacular things to witness in the sky is the Northern Lights. The Aurora dance can only be seen at certain times of the year and you need to travel as far north as you can to really make the most of it. Countries like Iceland or Finland are some of the most popular ways to see them. While you are there, you could also make the most of other ways to enjoy your holiday. Exploring in the snow and even searching out Lapland. 

A safari or wilderness experience 

Maybe you like the idea of being in the wilderness and exploring, then a safari or trek could be the perfect answer for your next vacation and holiday experience. There are plenty of destinations to consider all over the world, so deciding on the right type of expedition for you will be essential. You could go for something wild and maybe a family african safari is more your thing or perhaps you just want to have a safari trip as just a day outing rather than the whole vacation. Either way, you are bound to impress on this type of vacation and it certainly could be one for the memory bank. 

Walking the Great Wall of China

The great wall of China. It is one of the wonders of the world that can be seen from space no less. It is definitely something that appears on a bucket list from time to time, and now with the option to walk across parts of it, the dream could become your reality. While you are there, you can also take in some of the other amazing sites that China has to offer. 

Swimming with sharks

Maybe you like to get the adrenaline pumping and what better way than to really put yourself in hot water, figuratively speaking, and swim with one of the worlds biggest predators. Swimming with sharks may not be for everyone, but there are destinations across the globe that you can take on this challenge. 

Taking a cruise

Finally, a more low key option but one that people still would like to do is take a cruise. It may be sailing across the biggest oceans, it might be touring islands in the Mediterranean, or it could even be a river cruise taking in some of the worlds best cities and locations. 

Let’s hope that this has offered up some inspiration for your bucket list.
