    Great bucket list! We are still working on ours to post on our website too! Now you have sparked more places we might need to see! You should look into adding driving on the PCH1 to your list! Good luck!

      Having a bucket list makes you want to travel so much more! Great addition, the Pacific Coast Highway 1 is definitely a must!

    I have done quite a few of these but as soon as I tick one off I seem to add another. Hiking to Everest Base Camp & seeing the Taj Mahal are on my list. Always so much to see and do 🙂

      Hi Clare!

      That is great, it is a massive list and will take some time to complete but exactly once one is ticked off it gives you so much motivation!

      Happy Travels!

      Yes! There are too many beautiful sites and things to do in this amazing world, it was hard to just pick our top 100!

    Such an amazing list. It’s really exciting to see the things slowly marked off the list with time 🙂 Isn’t it?

    wow! This is an incredible list! There are so many things on this list that I want to do too! I may have to write myself a travel bucket list!

    • Luxurybackpacking 11/12/2016 at 5:27 pm - Reply

      Hi Annalise!
      It makes you realise, how many cool places and things to do there are out there. You should definitely write one for yourself! 🙂

      Happy Travels!

    It is great that you have been able to cross off so many items from your list. I am sure you will make rapid progress on the remaining ones. We do not actually have a physical bucket list, but we do have dreams, dreams of destinations that we would like to visit and we are trying to realize one dream at a time.

      Hi Vyjay!
      There are just so many amazing and beautiful sights out there it is hard to quantify and write a list of them all! Having dreams is a great way to look at it, and we hope you can turn those dreams into reality as well! 🙂

      Happy Travels!

    This list is awesome .. you’ve also given me some inspiration! I would love to hear more about how you would plan to “Visit Antartica” and how it was “Staying in a watervilla in the Maldives” 🙂


    • Luxurybackpacking 11/15/2016 at 12:17 am - Reply

      Hey Flunkingmonkey!
      In regards to visiting Antartica, we think the most viable way would be from Ushuaia Argentina, the southern most city in the world as many tourist expeditions leave from there. You can also get flights from South Africa seasonally, however it is very hard and expensive to get a ticket!
      We stayed at the Constance Moofushi, and we can honestly say it was one of the most magical destinations we have been too. Waking up to the sound of the waves around your room and stepping down to the water in the morning for a swim was a once in a life time experience, we were very lucky! If you ever have the chance to stay in a watervilla do not hesitate, it is worth every penny!

      Happy Travels!
      Emma & Yannick
