Top 5 places on my bucket list


1. Morocco, Africa

I added Morocco to my bucket list after watching Somebody Feed Phil. I was able to see Oudaias Kasbah during the show and the elegance of this neighborhood intrigued me. I want to experience the lost-in-time atmosphere. Here’s a quote in Arabic to get a feel of Morocco: لن تكون قادراً على قطع المحيط إذا لم يكن لديك الشجاعة أن تخسر مرآى الشاطئ.⁣ (You can never cross the ocean until you have the courage to lose sight of the shore)

2. New Zealand

I have always wanted to visit the continent of Australia because of kangaroos, penguins and the breathtaking landscapes. The waterfall pictured here is popularly known as Bridal Veil Falls and its unique because of its 55 m cascade. New Zealand is also famous for stargazing as it does not have that much pollution. Here’s a quote to inspire your future travels:⁣ The biggest adventure you can take is to live the life of your dreams. – Oprah Winfrey⁣

3. Croatia, Europe

I discovered Croatia during the 2018 FIFA World Cup, won by France, which beat Croatia 4–2 in regulation time. I decide to explore its cultures and traditions, after seeing the team’s excellent performance in the World Cup. Croatia is a must visit for all the Game of Thrones fans as well because Dubrovnik is King’s Landing, the capital of Westeros. Here’s quote in Croatian for you:⁣ Bez muke nema nauke⁣ (No pain, no gain)⁣

4. Peru, South America

I have always wanted to visit Peru since it is home to one of the 7 wonders of the world. Machu Picchu is a 15th-century Inca citadel situated on a mountain ridge 2,430 meters above sea level. I am super excited to see the most familiar icon of Inca civilization once this pandemic ends. Here’s a quote in Spanish:⁣ Piérdete en el mundo y encuéntrate contigo mismo⁣ (Get lost in the world and find yourself at the same time)

5. Iceland, Europe

The land of fire and ice has always appealed to me due to its unparalleled beauty. Iceland is famous for its astonishing natural phenomenon and geysers. It’s a wonderful destination for those who’re seeking surreal escapes. Personally, I’m a sucker for those ice caves and glaciers. Here’s a common Iceland slogan for you in Icelandic: þetta reddast (The idea that everything will work out all right in the end)

  1. Hello.

    Great choices. I have checked tens of this kind posts and wondered why people forget my country. My country offers art, nature, culture, ice sculptures, sand sculptures, snow sculptures, bear carving contests habits, culture, handicrafts, quilts and unique things which do not exist elsewhere like poor-man statues and of course happenings which are only in my country! I have told more about these in my about-page, I show here one of those happenings which are unique in the world:

    If you read my about, you will notice that my unknown country has made world’s biggest cruise ship, world’s biggest snow castle, which is much more that snow castle and world’s oldest surviving diving suit. It offers possibility to spend a night inside the snow castle, having cold drinks in ice bar, ice restaurants and snow chapel in which it is possible to get married. Cruising on some of our lakes in midsummer on board of old steam ship is an experience, which will stay in mind all the life. Experiencing a white night, because sun do not set, is something difficult to understand. If you love Samba, then you could follow it Helsinki. Our churches are unique on the countryside. They are generally wooden and bell towers are separated from them.
