Quitting a job and traveling around the world, checking off one bucket list destination each month, sounds more like a movie script than a realistic plan. It often takes years between visits to places a person has dreamed of for a long time, as many explorers need to save money and plan accordingly.
But all of the obstacles are worth the trips to some of Earth’s most amazing sights. One of the most difficult tasks is deciding where to go because many landmarks are not as well-known as the Eiffel Tower in Paris or the Colosseum in Rome.
The following list is a fascinating collection of old and new world wonders, marvelous architecture, natural phenomena and mysterious places located all over the world.
Thrill-seekers will love swinging over a gorge at the edge of a canyon without any safety measures; see how flowing waters create natural dams, caves and waterfalls; visit Iceland and witness for yourself why it’s often called “the land of fire and ice”; or explore oldest mountain formations on the planet.
Mountains, parks, lakes, forests, islands and “lost” cities – all of these breathtaking locations are worthy of being any adventurer’s ultimate trip destinations.
