A Country From Each Continent to Add to Your Bucket List
Do you have a bucket list? Most people have a rough idea in their heads of the things that they would like to see and experience in life before they die, and if this describes you then you should consider putting it down on paper. This will make the list more real and give you a little more impetus to go after it and get it completed.
If you want to get some awesome countries on your bucket list then we have put together a little list of countries from each of the 7 continents in the World that you can add to your bucket list.
Mexico, North America
Mexico is about far more than donkeys and ponchos and the country in fact does not get the recognition that it deserves as one of the greatest travel destinations in the World. From the beaches of Baja California and the cosmopolitan capital Mexico City, the jungles of Chiapas, the surfers paradise of Oaxaca and the raging volcano of Michoacan to the Mayan ruins of the Yucatan Peninsula, Mexico really does have it all ad you need to add it to your bucket list. As the first language is Spanish, make sure you take some Spanish lessons before you go in order to make the most out of your trip
Brazil, South America
Brazil is by far and away one of the best cities in South America and a trip here will give you memories that will last a lifetime. Start your trip somewhere like Rio de Janeiro, the stunning coastal city with iconic landmarks, famous beaches and a lively atmosphere. Brazil is so vast that a nine hour flight from Rio will take you up to the mouth of the incredible River Amazon where you can see River life and the incredible rainforest, all inside the same country. Brazil truly is a country like no other and you need to get it on your bucket list.
Large areas of wilderness, friendly locals, the ability to swim between two continents, skiing and glacier walking and remote villages are what you will find on a trip to Iceland, not to mention the chance to see the stunning Northern Lights. Tourism is still pretty low in Iceland in relation to how beautiful it is so try to tick this one of your list whilst you can have the place to yourself.
From the neon lights and futuristic Tokyo to the beautiful, health conscious island of Okinawa, Japan is a richly cultured and deeply interesting country which you have to visit before you die. Japan perfectly combines ancient tradition with ultra-modern thinking and you will find something new in every city that you visit. As if this wasn’t enough, the Japanese are among the kindest people on Earth and will bend over backwards to help you out.
Whilst the continent of Australia also features places like Tasmania, New Guinea and Seram, there really is nowhere quite like the mainland that you should be putting on your bucket list. Australia the country is a vast and varied nation which offers guests beautiful weather, glorious beaches, iconic landmarks like Ayers Rock, the Sydndey Harbor Bridge and the Great Barrier Reef and if you don’t yet have it on your bucket list, then it’s time to get this great country added.
A visit to Antarctica will give you the opportunity to see barren lands and kilometers of ice and snow that is home to penguins and sea life such as whales and sea lions. You can best reach Antarctica from the south of Chile and Argentina and it is worth making the trip for the night sky that is packed with more stars than you have ever set eyes on.
