20 bucket list trips of a lifetime

Club Elsewhere - Strories for and by the world curated by Rosie Bell - 20 bucket list places to visit - places to go once in your life

Ah, bucket lists. There are certain places that simply call out your name. An early childhood trip to the zoo might have left you harbouring a burning desire to play with penguins in Patagonia. Perhaps stars are more your thing, in which case the astonishing radiance of the dancing beams, which make up the Northern Lights may speak to you more. Natural or manmade, mountain, cityscape or seaside, there are new places to be discovered for every single day of your life – and what a beautiful predicament that is. I have been fortunate enough to tick so many places off my bucket list, but my work is not done, nor will it ever be. While I have had my share of pinch myself moments – swimming inside a volcano crater in Costa Rica? Check. Dancing at Rio carnival? Sim!. Here are 20 more bucket list places to visit that are currently taking space in my dreams, which I long to make reality, and that might just inspire your very next adventure.
