Yes, the world is big. But life is long--and you’ve still got plenty of time to check these must-visits off your bucket list. Read on and get your wheels a-spinning.


Drive Route 1 Or Route 66

Or better yet, both.

Marvel At The Egyptian Pyramids

Sally the camel had two humps.

World Wild Life

Scuba Dive The Great Barrier Reef

You just might spot an electric eel.

Take A Cruise To Antarctica

Because: penguins.

Walk The Great Wall Of China

The official length is 13,170.7 miles, so you might want to consider the abridged version.

My 1st Impression

Bask In Iceland's Midnight Sun

Preferably at a geothermal bath.

Trek Machu Picchu In Peru

The views are worth the altitude sickness.

Play With Paper Lanterns In Thailand

To ward off bad luck and cast wishes.

See A Real Live Elephant On Safari

Bonus points if you wear a pith helmet.


Go Hot-air Ballooning In Myanmar

Hope you’re not afraid of heights.

Visit The Taj Mahal In Agra

Then remind your husband that this temple was built by the emperor Shah Jahan as a tribute to his wife.

Float In The Dead Sea

And then treat yourself to a falafel sandwich.

Drink Wine In Burgundy

Also: cheese.

Catch A Rainbow At Victoria Falls In Zambia

Or bungee jump the 111m drop… if you dare.

Eat Fresh Sushi In Tokyo

Preferably served to you by sushi master Jiro himself.

Elite Yacht

Sail Around The World In A Giant Yacht

After you win the lotto, of course.
