Maybe you can’t afford to go on long vacations or quit your job so you could travel the world and see all of its wonderful places, monuments and amazing sites. However, at least once a year you can probably go somewhere and experience something new, so you should make sure that your each travel experience is an unforgettable one.
If you can’t think of a travel experience that should definitely be on your bucket list, read on to find some suggestions.
1. Swing at the end of the world
In Ecuador, there is a tourist attraction that doesn’t involve any technology, and it is a swing that swings you above a very deep abyss (actually a crater of an active volcano known as Mount Tungurahua). If you are afraid of heights, this may not be the experience you’ll be looking forward to, but if you’re up for some excitement, this is certainly something to blow your mind and enrich your life with one amazing experience.
2. Take a walk through the Sagano Bamboo Forest
This magnificent forest, located in Kyoto, Japan is something completely opposite from the first-listed experience. The bamboo trees have a calming effect on you and it is a truly relaxing experience. The scenery is wonderfully beautiful and really worth seeing, at least once in your life.
3. Drink beer at Oktoberfest
Now something completely different – Oktoberfest is a festival many people dream of visiting their whole life, and why wouldn’t they? This is the time and place where and when you can let go of your worries, enjoy fantastic beer and music while socializing with likeminded people.
4. Meet the Moai on Easter Island
The Easter Island has several large solid rock statues which nobody knows who, why and how made them. The most intriguing question is how people carried those large statues across the island to erect them in different places. Nevertheless, the mystery remains, but the sights of these statues aren’t any less interesting or fascinating.
5. Witness the Northern Lights in Sweden
The combination of indigo blue, purple and yellow lights, among many others can be seen on the wonderful sky above Sweden. Just going there and seeing nature playing with colors right in front of your eyes is an experience to remember for the rest of your life, and you can do that by going to the Abisko National Park, Torne Valley or Jukkasjärvi and getting ready to be amazed.
6. Visit the Hobbit Village
If you are a fan of the Lord of the Rings movie series, this is the place you should visit at least once. Even if you’re not, these small houses hidden in the green hills near Matamata in New Zealand’s North Island are amazing to see and explore. But prepare your wallet, as a tour costs $75 for adults.
7. Go bungee jumping at Bhote Koshi River
The bridge over the Bhote Koshi River close to Katmandu gives you the best bungee jumping experience and the longest jump of 160 meters. If you are an adrenaline junkie and like this sort of excitement, put this one onto your bucket list.
8. Take a swim in Iceland’s Blue Lagoon
This is a place like no other and you simply can’t go through life without ever having experienced the wonderful turquoise waters of Grindavík’s geothermal pools and enjoy magnificent landscapes while relaxing and enjoying the wonders of this beautiful place. You can treat yourself to this pleasure for approximately $41 and have an experience you will always gladly reminisce of.
9. Take a flying tour in Cappadocia
Turkey offers you an amazing experience of floating in a hot air-balloon while having the chance to experience the beautiful landscapes. Besides flying and becoming a part of the scenery, and feeling the wind in your hair while you relax and enjoy the view, let yourself fantasize about the better side of life and embrace all the feelings overwhelming you while flying in the great blue skies.
