Everyone should have a travel bucket list! They give you something to plan and do and it feels amazing once you tick it off.
So to give you some inspiration on what to put on your travel bucket list, I have listed mine down below. I have tried not to make it too much about animals, but I have chucked a few in there!
Before I start though, I want to say that these are in no particular order! So my travel bucket list starts here:
1 – Skydiving
Skydiving was my parents second date – how adventurous! I’m not exactly afraid of heights but this is a lot higher then what I am used to, so I need to mentally prepare myself, and also save up as it can be quite pricey.
This is also a great opportunity to fundraise for future travels or for a charity! Please read my post here on a charity which really needs your help!
Skydiving in the UK is possible here!
2 – Swim with dolphins/sharks/sea lions
Due to the nature of my travels, I really need to be careful to avoid animal exploitation. This can be done in the animals natural habitat, inside of a cage for protection purposes as I believe this is the most humane of doing it!
The photos below are my own from visiting Plymouth Marine Aquarium, which I highly recommend visiting!
3 – Walk on the Great Wall of China
This is a sight that I think should be on everyone’s bucket list! You can get a lot of information about it here.
It would be incredible if I could get my own photos and walk a section of it, as well as learn the history of it as I do so.
4 – Visit Harry Potter studios
Okay, so I have already been here before (whoopsie!) but I loved it so much that I want to go back. When I did go, it was for my 18th birthday and I caught a stomach bug so I wasn’t feeling very well!
On my next time round, I am definitely bringing more money for the shop at the end because I want everything they sell.
5 – Put ‘Love Lock’ on bridge in Paris
I’m not usually a romantic and I feel like this would make a break-up even worse, and so this is something I would do with my closest friends!
Unfortunately, the practice is now banned (you can read why here) and so, I need to find a creative way of doing it!
6 – Zipline through jungle
Can you imagine anything more beautiful?! Flying through a jungle, possibly seeing some animals and feeling the wind on your face; I can’t imagine anything more freeing.
I would chose to do this in Costa Rica (you can check it out here) simply because it is so beautiful and a dream destination. I definitely need a GoPro for when I do though!
7 – Jungle Swing
Once more, such a freeing and beautiful experience. Although, the fact that the girl below is not wearing a harness sets my anxiety off, it is something I am dying to do.
My choice of location would be Indonesia or Bali, you can check a company that does this here!
8 – See a tiger in the wild
I have seen a tiger in real life before, but unfortunately it was behind bars and I am really against that.
Tiger’s are my 3-year old brothers favourite animal! I can’t imagine anything more exciting than taking him to the beautiful jungle (when he’s older of course) and seeing one of these magnificent creatures in their natural habitat.
9 – Go scuba diving
Imagine swimming along the beautiful coral reefs, seeing hundreds of species of fish and maybe some turtles! I think this is the ultimate experience, one that can be done off the coast of Chile.
I would need to purchase an underwater camera though! Or get a waterproof case for the GoPro I will use for my zip lining!
10 – Go rock climbing
I have done a little bit of climbing in a climbing centre, but I don’t think anything could compare to the fresh air and the thrill of climbing on rocks.
When I was about 11 years old (I may be completely off with my age there but it was a long time ago!) I did some rock climbing in the same place as my brother in the picture below and I was terrified! But I could go up easily, it was coming down that was the problem.
These are the first 10 things on my travel bucket list! There are a couple more lists coming so be sure to keep an eye out for them! I’ll be posting them at the same time next week (and the week after for the 3rd list). Check out part 2 here, and part 3 here!
What is on your bucket list? Have you got anything to recommend to me that I should put on mine? Let me know in the comment section down below!
