I have a bucket list. I only came up with it a few weeks ago when I wrote a story for Traveller about the idea of a “reverse bucket list” – the things you shouldn’t do – and was asked to also list the experiences I genuinely did want to have before I died.
Until then I’d never really, properly, thought about it. I’ve written about the concept of a bucket list plenty of times. I’ve advised other people to put things on their list that I’ve enjoyed. But I’ve never sat down and thought about the five things I really, really want to achieve in my travelling life.
If you want to avoid the panicked-travel-booking trap in February (“anything that’s cheap in six weeks”), or you’re determined to make this the year that you finally visit that place you’ve always wanted to see, a little pre-planning right now can go a long way.
The World’s Best Journeys list for 2018 was created by a collaboration between Canada’s Flight Network and 500+ of the world’s top travel journalists, agencies, bloggers, and editors. (I was one of them, asked to select a listing of my all-time favorite travel experiences.)
What resulted is a collection of the top 50 trips every traveler can aspire to in their lifetime, a guide to diverse and dynamic adventures and activities in some of the most stunning and culturally-rich lands on the planet.
As you read, you’ll be tempted to travel to massive icebergs in Antarctica, night skies in the Sahara, unique creatures roaming the Galapagos Islands, blue waters from the Aegean Sea to the Caribbean. You can enjoy the landscapes of Greenland; the seas of French Polynesia or the Greek Islands; or maybe Patagonia, the Nile, Mount Kilimanjaro, and other of the world’s greatest destinations.
There is so much to see in this world, yet, so little time. If you’re thinking there is still so much time to start seeing the world, you could be wrong.If you have a burning desire for traveling and adventures, start planning now.
We all making bucket lists for things we want to do in life. Some of us want to try something new each new, some of us want to work in the top PR companies in cityof Toronto, and some of us want to travel the world. Here’s a list ofhow you should finally make that bucket list:
From snapping up tickets for iconic sports events to tracking down locations featured in much-loved films, theme-based bucket lists are all the rage. Foodies devise plans to dine at as many Michelin-starred restaurants as budgets allow; party animals tick off A-list carnivals and festivals; and American retirees set out in massive motorhomes to see all 50 states (finishing with a flight to Hawaii). Music lovers have global checklists, too, and they don’t come much bigger (and in some cases brasher) than these seven.
