Unlimited Budget – Where Would We Go?

Hi,

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…….

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.

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.
