Anyone who has an interest in travel, or indeed just enjoying life, will have some sort of bucket list. It may be a list that is completely all about those daydream experiences, or it may include some more realistic and everyday things. But, nevertheless, a bucket list is one way to ensure that you see and do everything you want in life, no matter how big and extravagant, or how small. However, we can all be a little guilty of following the crowd, or adding things that are quite generic. Which is why I thought it would be nice to share with you some of the bigger more travel-oriented experiences that I think are well worthy of being added to your bucket list. Perhaps this list will inspire you to add a few of these yourself.
