Bucket list: 126 must-visits all over the world

Australia's Uluru or Ayer's Rock

Our bucket list: Been there, didn’t do that yet.

We’re travellers and we’ll always be travellers. Although we hope to see everything and every country in the world, chances are we won’t be able to. Therefore it seems better to make a bucket list of things we really want to do. Beware, it’s a long, very long list. Things we can tick off are in bold.

This map includes all bucket list items. Green bubbles are natural features while yellow ones are man made. Black bubbles are places we’ve already visited.
