Discuss: What’s at the Top of Your Travel Bucket List?

Travel is addicting. No matter how much you’ve seen, there’s always something else. However, everyone has something that they want to see more than anything else in the world. That’s why this week’s discussion topic is “What’s at the Top of Your Travel Bucket List?”

Take a minute to read about mine, and then let me know yours in the comment section below.

For me, Petra is at the top of my travel bucket list. However, it hasn’t always been. At one point, the Colosseum in Rome was at the top. Then it was Angkor Wat. Then the Great Wall of China. Then the Trans-Siberian Railroad. However, despite seeing all of those, my list keeps getting longer and longer. That’s what’s great about travel bucket lists, there’s always two things to add for every one you see!

The first time I saw Petra, I thought, “Hey, wasn’t that in Indiana Jones?” And, ever since I realized it was a real place, I’ve wanted to see it in person. After all, what’s not to like. Giant buildings carved into sheer rock walls. Towering canyons meandering through the desert. Camels. It really looks like an awesome place.

Everyone I’ve ever talked to or read about who has visited Petra has come back marveling at how amazing it. Evidently, the pictures can’t even begin to do it justice. But, damn! Those pictures look pretty awesome.

So that’s what’s at the top of my bucket list. What’s at the top of yours? Let me know in the comments below.

    For me, the list is ever so long. I would like to get to Angkor Wat (and I lived in Thailand for two years! So close!), Machu Pichu, and Buenos Aires. For now. Oh, and New Zealand.I hope to get to NZ this coming Lunar New Year, and if I do, I’ll definitely write about it!!!
