30 Places to visit before you die

I’m in the mood for a fun, light blog post, so I’m doing this one ‘Buzzfeed’ style. I’ve created a list of the top destinations I’d like to visit, or my “Travel Bucket List”. I have already visited 3 or 4 of them, but I just couldn’t create a list without them! Feel free to share some of the places on your own travel bucket list!

1. Iguazu Falls, Argentina/Brazil

This one is mostly for Seth. The bird is a blue-footed booby and somehow he’s managed to sneak this one on to my list.

9. The Pyramids, Egypt

11. India

I don’t actually have a specific place I’d like to visit in India, but the country seems so rich in culture and I’d love to one day visit.

16. Thyolo, Malawi

Thyolo made the list because of the four months I spent living there, but Malawi would still have been on my list. One of the first projects I contributed to was based in Malawi and I always wanted to visit. It’s a beautiful country filled with beautiful people!

17. Bay of Kotor, Montenegro

18. Marrakesh, Morocco

20. The Shire, New Zealand

I know the Shire is not actually a real place. But I really just want to go to New Zealand to soak in the scenery and check out some Lord of the Rings filming locations.

21. Geirangerfjord, Norway

22. Machu Picchu, Peru
