Some Ideas For Achievable Bucket List Vacations

By Kelly Wood


When the time comes to plan your next vacation, it's easy to fall into the trap of going to the same places and doing the same things that you've done last year and the year before. Maybe it's time for a change. If you don't start going on your bucket list vacations, you may never get the opportunity to do those things you've always wanted to do.

Many people dream of simply visiting a particular destination. For Lucy Jordan from the famous Marianne Faithfull song, that destination was Paris, where she wanted to ride around in a sports car, feeling the wind in her hair. Maybe your dream destination is New York or Tokyo or the Tahitian islands. It's just a plane ticket away.

A common item on people's bucket lists is to go on a long trek. The Inca Trail in Peru combines this with a visit to Macchu Picchu, a marvel of construction. Others simply want to complete the entire Appalachian Trail. You don't have to do this in one go but can do it in smaller, more manageable sections instead. If you'd like to conquer a mountain, you may find that getting to the top of Kilimanjaro is more within reach than reaching the summit of Everest.

One type of journey that can really change your life and strengthen your faith is to go on a religious pilgrimage. For Muslims the ultimate destination is Mecca; for Sikhs, it's the Golden Temple of Amritsar; for Jews, the Western Wall in Jerusalem. The most famous pilgrimage for Christians is the Camino de Santiago, which can start from anywhere and ends at the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela in Spain.

A different type of pilgrimage can be to visit the places where your ancestors came from. In a country like the United States, for instance, most people are descended from immigrants. Visiting the town or village where your great-great-great-grandfather grew up provides a link with your past and will help you to understand where you came from and why you are who you are.

It's a good idea to combine some of the things you dream of doing with a destination you dream of going to. For instance, if you've always wanted to bungee jump but are dreaming of an African safari too, you may want to visit Zambia or Zimbabwe. The Victoria Falls Bridge between these two countries is the site of spectacular bungee jumps with the world's largest waterfall thundering in the background.

Another way to have an unforgettable experience is to volunteer while you go on vacation. Simply look for a project at the destination you'd like to visit or decide on the type of volunteer work you'd like to do and then choose your destination accordingly. For instance, if you'd like to work with sea turtles, you may want to consider a trip to Costa Rica or Cape Verde.

It's easy to make your bucket list vacations a reality. First you need to decide what it is that you want to do more than anything. Then stop dreaming and start doing by taking small steps toward achieving that goal.
