A bucket list of travel must do’s. (for us anyway) As we have not travelled to these places, we don’t feel a second hand account is good enough. So we have sourced some images from Wikimedia Commons to whet your appetite, so to speak. Must try to get to South America and the Far East one day…….

If you look closely you can make out the snake that appears at the Spring or Autumn equinox.

We would add on the Golden Temple of Amritsar,
and the border closing ceremony at Wagah/Attari. Can attract huge crowds on both sides for a lowering of flags and a slamming shut of the border gates. And the border guards of both countries strut like peacocks in perfect symmetry. Try a Youtube video for the full effect.
Iguazu Falls, Brazil/Argentina

Nevertheless, we have managed to visit a few place on our ‘original’ bucket list;
Grand Canyon, Arizona, USA
Abu Simbel, Egypt
Do you agree with this list? Where would your bucket list take you?
A video to 25 places to go before you die. Ignore the Santorini in Italy comment, it’s actually a part of Greece.
