Top 10 Bucket List Locations
It’s been my goal for a long time to visit every single country and immerse myself in the food and culture unique to each area. Unfortunately, I can’t be everywhere at once and until cloning becomes normal I’ll have to slowly work my way around the planet. However, I keep a list of must-see destinations to narrow down my which locations to visit next.
I’ve put together the top 10 bucket list destinations and why they made it to this list as well as a dedicated gallery.
Iceland: Set in a unique location, Iceland makes it to my bucket list destinations for many reasons. The fact that Iceland is situated in the Arctic Circle means that summer nights are bright and there is light 24 hours a day from mid-May until late-July. If you’re lucky you’ll also get to experience the Northern Lights, which is a magnificent scene of dancing skylights that paint the night in the fall and winter months. Iceland is also home to the city of Reykjavik home to boutique style hotels and restaurants with Nordic charm. I’ll be traveling to Iceland in October 2018, so I’m glad I'll get to check this destination off my list.
