5 Places to add to your Bucket List

Who wants to see the world? I recently read a quote from St. Augustine that really inspired me to search for beautiful and unexpected destinations I hope to one day add to my bucket list.

“The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page”

If you can’t get off school/work but are day dreaming about the moment you buy your plane ticket and leave, check out the 5 places you need to add to your Bucket List!

PS want more inspiration like this post? Check out my own personal bucket list at http://bucketlist.org/list/sara.ruthnum/

1. Cinque Terres 

Located in the rugged and scenic Italian coast, Cinque Terres is unlike any area I’ve ever seen. Named for the surrounding 5 villages, you can find beautiful buildings, crystal blue sea, and jaw dropping-ly beautiful cliffs.

2. Mauritius 

Fun fact, Mauritius was the last known country of the famed (but extinct) do-do bird. From pristine white sandy beaches, to a diverse cultural hub, Mauritius is truly unique.

3. Bora Bora 

So nice you say it twice. (I’m sensing a theme here) It may be because it’s winter, or because it’s been raining for a while now but my wanderlust seems to be focus on beaches, and Bora Bora isn’t anything to be surprised about.

4. Tanzania

I mean it’s the inspiration for the Lion King, do you really need any more of an explanation? Well, Tanzania is also home to Mt. Kilimanjaro, one of the most sought after mountains to climb in the world! And to boot, Tanzania has one of the worlds largest Safaris where you’ll be able to see lions, and elephants.

5. Vancouver

There are not many places in the world where you can ski and surf in the same day, but Vancouver is one of them (if you’re up for the challenge). Surf in legendary Tofino, a surfers paradise, and then take the ferry across to one of Vancouver’s local mountains, which is open late for an evening ski sesh. I’m not saying you won’t be exhausted, but it will be a memory you won’t soon forget.
