Places you've not been before - anywhere in the world? Singapore was at the top of my list, but I went in 2009. Choose 3.


Trieste in Italy.

The Orkney Islands.

Vancouver Island (during a Seattle to Alaska road trip)
South Pacific island hop

I'm desperate to go to Zanzibar - preferably twinned with a Serengeti Safari. My bucket list gets bigger the more I travel though so also on there are Namibia, Hong Kong, India (Kerala) and Nicaragua. I'm lucky to have ticked a few off my list already but I need more ,only and more time off work!

Zanzibar here too. Cape Town. Florence - the last one remaining from my Italy list.

I would like to go to:

1. Botswana, or similar southern African country with amazing wildlife and natural beauty.

2. Japan I'm cherry blossom season.

3. New Zealand also for stunning scenery.

far Cape Town was top of my wish list until 5 years ago when I toom. Year off and went travelling. It really did live up to expectations.

I started my bucket travel list in my early twenties when I found Pinterest. So far I've done;

The Maldives
Ibiza (for both lifestyles & the sunset)

Left on the list;

Japan & Bhutan too - shall we have a MN trip?!

And then it's a toss-up between sailing the North West Passage/seeing the wildebeest migration/watching a turtle lay eggs (handily combined with some sort of south pacific idyll)/northern lights huddled in a siberian yurt

I had Tanzania on my list and just did it - Serengeti, Ngorongoro Crater and Zanzibar.... Amazing!

Still on my list (random):



Machu Picchu

StarsInTheNightSky Wed 08-Jul-15 10:16:40

I've done quite a bit on my bucket list as I was lucky enough to have a job where I worked all over the world, but my top three still to do are:

Easter Island
French Polynesia (to see the Sun fish migration)
Roa trip across deep south USA

SooticaTheWitchesCat Wed 08-Jul-15 10:17:24

Morocco - Marrakech, Essaouira, Fez
Venice (maybe next year smile)

cardibach Wed 08-Jul-15 10:17:28

I've been lucky enough to have been to some of the places others have listed. They're all good!
Mine at the moment are:
Vietnam- rReunification Express from Ho Chi Minh City to Hanoi then trip into the mountains to visit the child I sponsor
Train through the Canadian Rockies
American road trip NY to Nashville via eastern seaboard and Mississippi delta.

None of these is strictly 'a place' but I'm a bit greedy travel-wise!

LovelyFriend Wed 08-Jul-15 10:17:39

I'm not telling. I want to go to places that don't have too many other people there smile
