Globe Guide’s travel bucket list

With so many incredible destinations around the world, it’s truly impossible to experience it all. With that in mind, I’ve made a bucket list of sorts, with the things I simply MUST do while I still can. I have a strange feeling that this will continue to evolve…but here’s where it stands so far!

    A wonderful and extensive list Tamarra. I hope you get to complete some of the outstanding ones soon. I’d love to go to The Maldives so I’m jealous that you’ve done it already. It looks breathtaking.

    Very similar to my own list! I also have tour Angkor Wat in Cambodia, eat pizza in Napels, hike Mnt Vesuvius, view St. Basil’s and sip vodka in Russia, haggle for a rug in Turkey, and go Polar Bear viewing in Churchill.

    • OMG your list is so good! I love all of those and probably need to add them all to mine. I have gone Turkish rug shopping in Istanbul already, and it’s a fun experience- especially because they’re all so friendly and give you lots of apple tea 🙂

    You make some great suggestions and I hope you get to do all of these trips; you might want to add eastern Europe to the list not to mention the Yorkshire Dales, the Highlands of Scotland, Iceland, etc. never mind letting the world know that we have some amazing places to visit in Canada. Cheers, Glenn

    • Thanks for the suggestions Glenn! I finally made it to Eastern Europe a few months ago (Hungary and Estonia) and loved both- I’d definitely like to head back and explore other spots like Montenegro and Croatia.
