Back in April I mentioned in a post that I don’t have a bucket list and really dislike the term and idea of it. However, in that same post I also wrote how I still have a mental list of places that I’d love to visit and explore some day.
When it comes to travel, the right experiences and interactions can change us in a variety of ways. It can be thoughts on a particular issue, being more open to things or even something as simple as incorporating new foods into our diets.
I came across an article from USA Today featuring 10 Best Bucket-List Cultural Trips.
According to the article, “a meaningful trip yields more than just bragging rights…It’s a way to see things unique to other parts of a country.”
Here is the list of trips from USA Today:
- Shakespeare in the Park- New York
- Petra, Jordan
- Polar Bear Viewing- Churchill, Canada
- El Castillo Pyramid in Chichen Itza- Mexico
- Holi Festival in India
- The Great Wall of China
- Wilderness Viewing- Galapagos Islands, Ecuador
- Western Wall- Jerusalem, Israel
- St Peter’s Basilica and the Vatican
- The State Hermitage Museum- Saint Petersburg, Russia
From this list of 10, I’ve been to 4 of these sites (which I’ve highlighted).
I’d say that all of these places are worthy of being on anyone’s list, some more than others though. Out of the 4 that I’ve visited, I found Petra to be the most impressive and the Hermitage to be at the bottom.
Do you have a list of places and sites that you’d love to visit? If so what is your top site/ destinaton on it?
