First off, if you don’t have a bucket list, make one! All it is is a list of things that you want to do before you die. Personally, most of the things on my bucket list are travel related. So today, I’m gonna share with you guys 15 things that we have on our bucket lists and these are things that we think everyone should try before they die.
This is a very common one for people to have on their bucket list. Also, this is something I’ve always wanted to try myself.
There are just so many appealing traits to falling out of a plane! The view for one! The feeling of free-fall. The adrenaline rush. Being able to say that you’ve been skydiving!
Also, while I was writing this, it made me think of Felix Baumgartner (the guy that jumped from the edge of space), so here’s that video!
2. See the Pyramids
Another extremely popular one. The pyramids are a staple on many people’s bucket lists.
Riding through the desert on a camel, being guided around these historic sites would just be an unforgettable experience! Also, many of the tombs are still in remarkable condition and are open to the public.
3. Climb Mount Kilimanjaro
I love climbing mountains. I’m not quite mental enough to go for Everest, so I feel like Kilimanjaro is a good one to aim for. Still an incredible challenge, at almost 6000 metres high.
This one’s definitely for those who want to push themselves out of their comfort zone a bit.
4. The Great Wall of China
By the way, it’s a myth that this is visible from space. Just thought I’d put that to rest!
An absolute spectacle of the highest proportions, The Wall winds its way through China for over 21,000 km (over 13,000 miles)! It took over 2000 years to build!
However, since it’s nearly 2,500 years old, some areas are in ruins, but it still remains one of the most popular travel destinations in the world.
5. Road Trip Across the States
This one has been on my list for a while now.
Cruising across America in a Hippie van or something, stopping off in different states on the way just sounds like the dream travelling experience.
The great thing about the US is the fact that each state is vastly different to the next. There are just so many bucket list things to do there.

6. Fire a Bazooka in Cambodia
Yeah, you can do this!
This just seems like the perfect way to get rid of some of your pent up anger and frustration without hurting anyone. You just get to blow the s**t out of the side of a mountain. Also, just think of the awesome pictures you can get of yourself holding an effing bazooka!
7. Hang Gliding
Honestly, I want to try paragliding too, but I put hang gliding on the list because you can go much faster doing this one! If you are in an incredible location with spectacular landscapes, what better way to fully appreciate it than to experience it from above?
The views plus the thrill and the rush of the activity itself. That’s a pretty decent combination!
Side note, apparently the world record for distance covered while hang gliding is 475 miles!
8. Full Moon Party in Thailand
This just sounds like the ultimate party experience!
Located in Koh Phangan, Thailand, the full moon party is a beach party that lasts from midnight all the way to noon!
It occurs once a month (full moon) and up to 30,000 people are there every single month!
Check out our post all about the Moon Party here.
9. Bungee Jumping
Another very popular bucket list idea, bungee jumping is another one for those adrenaline junkies out there! It’s very simple (in thought) to just jump off something with a bungee cord attached to your feet, but I imagine there are few things more nerve-racking than standing on the edge about to jump!
Another thing that I hadn’t heard of before is reverse bungee jumping, but it sounds amazing too!
10. Witness the Northern Lights
Aurora Borealis – more commonly known as the Northern Lights – is an amazing, naturally occurring light show caused by charged particles from the Sun entering the atmosphere and colliding with gases in the Earth like oxygen.
This creates one of the most amazing things to witness on the planet!
The closer you are to the North Pole, the greater the chance of you witnessing this event. So North America, Canada and Northern Europe are probably good bets to catch a glimpse of this spectacle.
Bonus: Nagaoka Fireworks Show
I felt I had to throw this one in since I was just at it the other day.
Located in Nagaoka, Japan, this was the most incredible fireworks display that I’ve ever seen, with almost half a million people in attendance for it.
Check out some of the pictures from it:
You can see even more insane pictures on our Instagram account.
There you go, guys! Please comment and tell us what things are on your travel bucket list. We’d love to hear it!
Other than that, hope you have an awesome day guys!
