25 Adventures To Add To Your Bucket List: Part 1

15 Adventures To Add To Your Bucket List

As far as I’m aware, everyone has a bucket list. I’ve filled a whole book of adventures that I hope to one day experience. A few months back, I made a five year bucket list and I am surprisingly checking things off faster than I thought. I suggest you make one yourself, and while you’re at it, check out all these amazing women, bloggers, and their own exciting adventures. Hopefully, you will be inspired and add a few of these experiences to your own bucket list.

I still can’t believe I was able to experience this magical part of Africa.”[/su_quote]

[su_quote]  “6 AM surfing at Big Wave Bay in Hong Kong easily ranks high on my list of amazing travel experiences. This was my first time surfing. The waters were warm, and the nature around you just makes you feel small in a big world. I loved it.”[/su_quote]

[su_quote]” Flying down the zipline so quickly, you don’t register any fear, it is pure exhilaration from start to finish with some of the most spectacular views imaginable on the way down.”[/su_quote]

[su_quote]”Hiking all over a glacier in Iceland has got to be one of the most unique things I have experienced while traveling. Seeing nature in its raw form like that is just amazing! I felt so empowered after this experience, I mean I just hiked around a glacier so I can basically do anything right? If you are wanting to add a truly unique experience to your Iceland trip glacier hiking is a must!” [/su_quote]

[su_quote]”While in Hawaii, I camped at the base of the Haleakala Volcano and woke long before dawn to hike to the top. I made it to the summit just in time to watch the sun rise. It was a soul-cleansing experience!”[/su_quote]


No. 7 | Helča | Io Torno A Vivere

[su_quote]”The giraffes were eating from my hand like some horses or dogs.I had never done it before, so it was so good. I think everybody should experience it at least once. It’s like feeding horses, only the giraffes have much longer tongue and it feels strange when they lick you.”[/su_quote]

No. 8 | Donna Wanderlust |Haute Culture Fashion

[su_quote]”Sapa was the first place I ever witnessed and fell in love with cultural costume. My red Dao homestay was the inspiration behind my website today. Staying with a family for 1 or 2 nights is a great way to break down cultural boundaries and open up to new methods of communication, be it though textiles, cooking and eating together or playing with the local kids. I always pick a homestay over a hostel whenever it’s available”[/su_quote]

No. 9 | Jess | A Blonde and Her Passport

[su_quote]”There is no better way to experience the the crazy Star Wars-esque landscape of Cappadocia than by hot air balloon. Every morning hundreds of colourful balloons fill the sky and create the most unique sight. We went with Voyager Balloons and their years of experience shone through as they guided us from the cone-like rock formations and up into the sky. If there is one thing you should do in Turkey, this is it. There is nothing else quite like it in the world.” [/su_quote]15 Adventures To Add To Your Bucket List

 No. 10 | Samantha Bilkey | Samantha En Route

[su_quote]”I went whale watching in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico with Vallarta Adventures. It was amazing! We saw several baby humpback whales come within 50 feet of our speed boat, and we used the hydrophone to hear them singing below us. It was such a fantastic experience!”[/su_quote]15 Adventures To Add To Your Bucket List

  No. 11  | Annemarie | Travel on the Brain

[su_quote]”In nature, you shouldn’t go close to any kind of kangaroo, big or small, but if you happen to be in a shelter or petting zoo with a baby kangaroo, go very close to its nose and lightly blow on to it. But don’t pull back because the baby kangaroo will kiss you, which means it wants to be your friend.”[/su_quote]15 Adventures To Add To Your Bucket List


No. 12 | Sarah | sarahalexandrageorge.com

[su_quote]”One of my best travel experiences was riding this beautiful creature bareback through the jungles of Langkawi and out to the sea. As we were riding, a tropical storm was brewing and the air was sparking with electricity. The horses were so excited and we raced along empty beaches beneath palm fronds and fallen coconuts. “[/su_quote] 15 Adventures To Add To Your Bucket List

No. 13 | Lisa | Lisaldn.com

[su_quote]There’s no adrenaline, and it isn’t as extreme as bungee jumping or the likes of it (unless you fall in, the cold water will get the adrenaline pumping, for sure!), but it sure is a beautiful experience! Seeing the majestic mountains towering over the quiet fjord from the fjord itself shines a completely different light on the magnificent nature of Norway. I believe there is no better way to discover the country![/su_quote]
