Our world is filled with unspeakable beauty, both man-made and natural, and it’s hard to say whether a single lifetime would truly be enough to truly experience all of it. Most of us will maybe never see everything that the world has to offer us, but it’s worth a shot! Here are 40 unbelievable places around the world that are certainly worth adding to your bucket list.
Some consider travel to be a luxury or even an needless burden, while others consider it to be extremely important to living a fulfilled life. Still others don’t even have the opportunity to make that decision. But if you are distressed with a case of wanderlust, you know that seeing the world’s sights can be a deeply moving and valuable experience.
My personal favorite is ecological tourism – climbing mountains, exploring deserts or simply in drinking in the sights of the countryside. However, you can’t deny the appeal of some of the man-made structures as well – from the epic, antique grandeur of the Pyramids of Giza to the sunny charm of sea-side villages in Greece.
It’s a wonderful and beautiful world we live in, so make sure to see as much of it as you can before you kick the bucket! Here’s an excellent quote from St. Augustine that will hopefully inspire you to get your foot out the door:
“The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page.”
