Everyone has an idea of what they want on their bucket list, but have you ever wondered, is there more?

travel bucket list | over 50s travelNot everyone has travelled, and not everyone has travelled everywhere. Have you got a bucket list? Have you ever thought to yourself ‘I want to get out there’ or ‘I want to see the world’. Have you ever just thrown a dart on your world map and just gone?

Well keep reading and I have found three beautiful places for you to add to your bucket list.

If you’re wanting a mesmerizing site, why don’t you go visit the grand canyon? You might think you know all the facts about the Grand Canyon, but this Arizona landmark is still full of surprises. You might just think it’s all rocks and water, with a deadly drop. However this beautiful place has a lot of history, in fact, no one knows how long the canyon has really been there for. It has long been believed that the Colorado River began carving the Grand Canyon about 6 million years ago, but a 2012 study contained a real shocker, suggesting that the process may have begun as far back as 70 million years, the Grand Canyon as we know it today started out as a series of smaller canyons 70 million years ago, but the majority of the canyon did not begin to take shape until much more recently. So why not plan a trip and go see this incredible site and learn some history whilst you’re there.

If you are into your wildlife, this is the one for you. Have you ever wanted to come eye to eye with Africa’s mountain gorillas, well now you can in Rwanda? Volcanoes National Park is one of the most exciting wildlife experiences Africa has to offer. And locating the apes in their tangled and misty forest home is part of the thrill. A close-up encounter is practically guaranteed, but be warned – it can get tough. Any exhaustion dissipates immediately, however, when you look into the liquid brown eyes of one of the magnificent bamboo-munching beasts – these are the archetypal “gentle giants”.

Explore the living masterpiece that is the great barrier reef by swimming, sailing, snorkeling and diving. The World Heritage-listed attraction stretches more than 2,000km along the Queensland coast and can be seen from outer space. Cool right! Hop between the idyllic, palm-fringed islands and discover the bright coral and marine life. Visit Heron and Wilson islands during the annual turtle nesting season (November to March) where you can witness hatchlings scurrying to the sea and take some amazing photographs.

Create these amazing memories with a friend, husband, wife, boyfriend, girlfriend or anyone. Start creating your bucket list today with these at the top of your list.
