We’ve all been so locked down for the past year that the possibility of any kind of trip is an exciting one, right? Well, have you made a list of things that you want to see and places you want to go yet? Most people have a bucket list of sorts for their vacations and trips that they want to go on in life, but have you written yours?
A bucket list is just a list of things that you want to do before you “kick the bucket”, and your list should include some beautiful places that you’ll find in the world. You can learn all about the best time to visit the Galapagos Islands, why you should visit the Outback as much as Bribie Island. In your quest to create the ultimate bucket list, you should make sure that these are all trips that you can take before you meet your next decade milestone, and it’s just exciting to know that you have this milestone coming! So, where are five places that you should see before you turn the big four-oh? Let’s dive right in!
If you haven’t ever considered the U.S Virgin Islands as a destination, you should think about it. Right over in Caneel Bay, you’ll find a resort within 170 acres of the National Park. You’ll find total peace, complete quiet and a chance to enjoy a leisurely time away. There are seven beaches for sunbathing, the chance to ride kayaks and beach barbecues to be had, too. If you fancy exploring, there are tours on the island and it’s a place for singles or couples!
Oh, quaint England! There is so much more to London than being quaint, of course, but if you’re on a visit to the English countryside, make sure that your 40th birthday trip includes the city, too. You can take in a show or two, tour The Tower of London and enjoy a glass of bubbly on one of the many Thames River Cruises. Getting tickets to a West End show or London theatre can also be an amazing cultural experience to add to your memory book.
It’s a city that remains unforgettable, and if you go for the Tango Festival or the nightlife, you will get so much from a place that offers you a chance to explore the wilderness as much as enjoy the Latin music. It’s the Paris of South America, so why wouldn’t you want to book it as one of your many trips to come?
Okay, so depending where you are in the world, this may be a little more pricey than other places to visit, but it has to be on the list. You get theme parks, adventure parks, the chance to see the beautiful Gold Coast via helicopter tour and more. It’s not a place to leave out of your life, and if you want weather, crystal clear oceans and beaches, it’s exactly where you need to be.
This shouldn’t require more than one word: Vegas. The place is filled with all the glitz and glamour anyone should want to enjoy as they turn into a brand new decade. See the drag queens and dancers, gamble some cash and enjoy Gordon Ramsay’s finest. It’s got to be on the list!
