It’s exciting to travel, and everyone should do it. It can be incredibly enriching, and you’ll grow as an individual with each experience you partake in. The world is a big place, and there are so many things to see and do from a travel point of view, that you definitely need a bucket list. So here are ten travel experiences you need to check off your bucket list this year.
Hire A Boat
Most of us will use a traditional form of transport to get to and from a holiday destination. Usually, it’s a plane, train or cruise ship, but what if you could hire yourself a boat and experience a new form of driving for you and your party? There’s likely to be a many national boat club in your area or within a suitable distance, and it can be a great opportunity to learn a new skill. These boat memberships then allow you to hire the boat any time you want, which makes for a great spontaneous trip away somewhere.
Visit The Tallest Building In The World
To say you have been in the tallest building in the world is pretty special and currently, the tallest building is the Burj Khalifa in Dubai. Definitely worth a visit if you find yourself there anytime soon.
Go Sky Diving
Sky diving is the ultimate thrill for any adrenaline junkie, and even if you don’t consider yourself one, a skydive is something you should do at some point in your life. This is something that you can do in your home town or near to a city. Or if you’re wanting a bit more of a spectacular view, it’s worth jetting off to Dubai. Falling down towards the iconic Palm Jumeirah tends to be a very popular choice amongst tourists, and it’s something that is truly a once in a lifetime experience, especially if you tell yourself you’re never going to do it again!
Take Part In The Holi Festival
If you want to add a bit more color to your life then taking part in the Holi Festival in India is definitely worth attending. You may have seen pictures of it before, thousands of people throwing colored powder at each other and ending up looking like they’ve walked through a rainbow. This festival is celebrated in the springtime, and the reason for it is to represent the victory of good over evil and as a day of spreading happiness and joy.
Scuba Dive In The Great Barrier Reef
There are very few experiences that will really take your breath away, but scuba diving in the Great Barrier Reef is definitely one of them. If you love the sea and swimming in it, then you’ll find exploring the sea life along the reef, wonderful. Glide through a home to over 1,500 different species of fish, over a hundred species of sharks and rays and of course the beautiful turtles.
Drive Along Route 66
There doesn’t seem to be a route more famous than Route 66. If you find yourself over in the USA, why not hire a car and drive it? It’s a highway established in 1926, and its original route could take you from Chicago all the way to California. As it stands now, it is removed from the official US Highway system, however, you can still drive down it and explore what is, a famous stretch of road.
Experience The Souks Of Marrakech
There’s nothing quite as hectic as the souks of Marrakech. If you’ve never been to Morocco before, then you are missing out on a truly unique way of life. These souks have existed for many years, and not much has changed to them since they’re existence over a thousand years ago. These souks sell incredible wares that are all mostly hand-made or used with ancient equipment that we wouldn’t expect to still be used now in modern day society. The souks in Marrakech attract a lot of tourism throughout the year, and many go to experience it through a tour guide. It’s definitely worth doing it this way, rather than going alone. These tour guides can give you advice on any time you spend away from them so that you are shopping and browsing safely. You can easily become lost in a souk because every narrow alley tends to look the same, so it’s good to navigate through them carefully.
Ride In A Hot Air Balloon
A hot air balloon can be an exhilarating if not daunting experience when you realize that your standing in a basket and being held up by what’s essentially a giant balloon. But never the less, it’s certainly one to acquire the best views of your area. There’s plenty of events to find across the globe that get together to celebrate hot air balloons. One such one being the New Mexico balloon fiesta. Hundreds of hot air balloons in the sky is a pretty amazing sight to behold.
Go On A Safari
A safari is a holiday that for some, will never even happen. However, if you do get the chance to do one, you’ll be blown away by how breathtakingly beautiful these animals are to see up close. Some of us have probably only seen such animals like elephants, giraffes, and lions as a photograph. It’s quite a difference to see it in the flesh. Make sure when booking the safari that you do your research and pick the right place, tour operators and accommodation.
See The Northern Lights
The Northern Lights are a natural light display that are the results of disturbances magnetosphere caused by the solar wind. For those who don’t care much about the science behind it, it creates a colorful array of waves in the sky. Definitely one for the photo albums and is a great place to go with loved ones.
And that’s ten travel experiences for you to go out and try. So what are you waiting for? Go!
