The Ultimate Travel Bucket List
16 places we need to go before we die
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.
Scuba Dive the Great Barrier Reef
You just might spot an electric eel.
Take a Cruise to Antarctica
Walk the Great Wall of China
The official length is 13,170.7 miles, so you might want to consider the abridged version.
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
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.
Sail Around the World in a Giant Yacht
After you win the lotto, of course.
