** CONTRIBUTED CONTENT **
Are you the type of person that has a bucket list? It seems like if you are, then it is never ending as there are just so many places to go and things to see, that it can be hard to narrow it down sometimes. Well, if you are the kind of person that does have a dream travel list, then it is about to get much longer! Here are some of the world’s best ‘once in a lifetime’ travel experiences. There is something for everyone, so which will you be ticking off the list first?
Europe By Train
Once you are in mainland Europe it is pretty easy to travel around to different countries, as some of them are fairly small, and they are all close together. And one of the best ways to travel, so that you can hop on and off, as well as seeing the beautiful varied landscapes, is by train. You can start off in London, taking the Eurostar to France, and then quite easily stop in twenty cities around Europe, from Amsterdam, Paris, Rome, Budapest, and Vienna.
Hiking in Patagonia
Being able to explore the fjords of the Patagonia, located right at the South American tip by Chile and Argentina, is a great place for those that love the outdoors. From hiking and swimming to kayaking, there is plenty to see and do (and in such a beautiful landscape too). Just make sure that you look somewhere like ClimbThatRock to make sure that you’ve got all of the right gear to help you navigate the giant glaciers, large lakes, and mountainous areas.
Drive Along The Great Ocean Road
The Great Ocean Road, in Victoria, Australia, is one of the most scenic driving routes in the world. The drive is 151 miles in total, so easily done, but there are plenty of places to stop off at along the way. From rainforests to beaches, lighthouses, and the natural Australian wildlife, you will be in for a once in a lifetime adventure as you enjoy a place that is like no other in the world.
The islands of French Polynesia are some of the most beautiful in the world. The white sands and clear waters are a dream trip that is often so popular with honeymooners. When there are places like Tahiti and Bora Bora, you won’t want to choose. Which is why a cruise is a good way to experience what several of the islands have on offer.
If you think of a trip to Italy then normally places like Rome come to mind, as well as the world famous Venice. Being getting into the countryside of the country can be a good idea as there is so much to see and do, and the place is breathtaking. There are several World Heritage sites in that region, as well as places close by like Pisa and Florence. The Tuscany region is known for good wine and good food, so what more would you need?
