Sometimes life can get a bit overwhelming with all the amazing activities you want to engage in. There’s just so much adventure to experience and you catch yourself wondering; is one lifetime even enough?

We believe that if you know what you want and you plan out your goals, one lifetime is indeed more than enough. 

Today we take the chance to present you with our take on the ultimate bucket list. This series is meant to show you the best activities that give you adrenaline, experience and something to remember for the rest of your life. Buckle up!

Chef up!

Do you really want to die without knowing how to prepare your favorite dish yourself? We didn’t think so. Sure, some people may have it easier than others. We admit that if your favorite meal is scrambled eggs, you might want to skip this item from your bucket list. For the gourmets out there, it’s time to book that cooking class!

Become a volunteer

Something that shouldn’t be missing on the ultimate bucket list is definitely giving back to the world that gave us so much. There are underprivileged communities all over the world that need any help they can take. Volunteering in a foreign country might look very distant to you but there’s a reason why so many people believe it was one of the most important experiences of their lives. 

Visit a national park

The world’s national parks contain some of the planet’s most beautiful, protected natural surprises. Visiting one of them does not require too much planning effort but will for sure be a pretty cool experience! And if you’re not convinced or just don’t know which one to pick, check out our article The Best European National Parks For Your Next Adventure. We’ll definitely help you with that!

See the magic of the Great Barrier Reef

What life would it be if you have seen everything the land has to offer but nothing from the ocean? There’s a whole different world out there under the sea and we’re lucky enough to be able to experience it. Scuba diving around the Great Barrier Reef is a classic bucket list item but its popularity doesn’t take away from the memories you will make!

Drink and learn

Our favorite drinks offer us much more than just a good feeling. Ever thought about visiting a whiskey distillery in Tennessee? Or immersing yourself in the jungles of Colombia to see the coffee beans grow? Visiting the places where your own favorite drink has been or is being made can turn into a very fun trip. 

Wander around the 7 wonders

We’re sure you heard about the 7 wonders of the world but are they on your travel list? They definitely should. To remind you, it is these majestical monuments we’re talking about:

  • The Great Wall of China - China
  • Chichén Itzá - Mexico
  • Machu Picchu - Peru
  • The City of Petra - Jordan
  • Statue of Jesus on the top of Mount Corcovado - Rio de Janeiro 
  • Colosseum - Italy
  • Taj Mahal - India 

Travelling teaches you about the world what youtube could never do. To experience the true vibe of the most magical places on Earth, you have to witness them yourself. And which more wonderful places to see than the world’s 7 wonders?

Become a local

Checking off all the important historical monuments or traditional sightseeing stops is definitely fun. But have you ever thought about connecting with a country on a more personal level? If you engage in activities that enable you to see how locals live, you experience a new side of travelling. Switch up a hotel for an Airbnb, a taxi for public transport and famous restaurants for street food stands. Get to know your travel destinations in the eyes of a local!

Be a pro for a day

Ever caught yourself watching a sports game on TV and wondering how would it feel to be one of the players? Why settle for wondering, go try it out on your own! In this age, extreme sports are not for professionals only. There are many places, probably closer to you than you think, where you can be a professional athlete for a day. Take a three-day surf course, try to drive a formula on a racing circuit… Or have you heard about backcountry skiing? 

Escape into nature

Disconnect from the electronic age we’re living in and escape the busy life of an urban jungle. Only take what’s necessary, grab a friend, family or your spouse and immense in nature completely. This is the power of camping. And why should it be on your bucket list? Because it’s relatively easy to plan but the experience will be unmatched.

Fight your fears

Overcoming our fears is something each of us should at least attempt at doing. Stepping out of your comfort zone is, of course, uncomfortable. But it will take you places you never even dreamed of going. Whether it is watching the view from Burj Khalifa to overcome your fear of heights or diving with sharks so you see them in a less scary light… Do it and you’ll see what you’re capable of!

Now you should be good to go! The first 10 tips from the ultimate bucket list should definitely keep you occupied for a while. Choose an activity and start planning for the next month? Or next week? One thing is for sure; adventure doesn’t wait around!
