Should you or should you not?
Bucket lists are things that you want to do regardless of how outrageous or strange they are. But it pays to have a goal in life else, why would one want to work their lives? To buy stuff they want? Sure.
But the issue is, seeing the world and everything life has to offer is everything that is as important as that goal.
See the northern lights
“The northern lights are one of nature’s great displays: a mysterious, multicoloured show in which the night sky is suddenly lit up with a wondrous glow that twists and swirls like a heavenly lava lamp,” says Nigel Tisdall, Telegraph Travel’s Northern Lights expert.
“Elusive and ethereal, it is one of the great, timeless thrills of travel, a beautiful, shifting dance of nocturnal rainbows that many viewers find a humbling and spiritually uplifting experience.
“It occurs most commonly in the Arctic region, and in recent years the chance of enjoying the spectacle has become a prime reason to fly north for a winter break, despite the often high costs and the cold. The good news is that the range of holidays available for viewing the northern lights has never been better.”
Visit the Galápagos Islands
“The Galápagos is probably the most famous wildlife-watching destination in the world. And no wonder – it’s almost impossible to exaggerate the sheer spectacle of the place that provided inspiration for Charles Darwin’s ground-breaking theory of natural selection,” describes Mark Carwardine, Telegraph Travel’s Galápagos Islands expert.
“This remote archipelago is a land of stark lava formations, cactus forests, lush green highlands, turquoise bays and quintessential tropical beaches. But, best of all, it is overflowing with wildlife at every turn. Within minutes – sometimes seconds – of landing on this dot in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, you can be face-to-face with more strangely fearless and curious animals than anywhere else on Earth.”
