Bucket List — Five Places to See Before You Go

The penning of bucket lists doesn’t have any true source, or historical root, per-se. But it serves as a fun way of planning your travels and vacations with an emphasis on placing importance over certain locations and attractions.

With countless worldwide attractions, it was no easy undertaking compiling this list. We had to drum down through hundreds of our top picks just to get them down to the top 50. After that, we knew that only one percent of them could make the final tally. While these are not definitive, and some locations may be more appealing to you than others, they can serve as the starting point for your very own bucket list. Without further ado, make sure at least one of these serene destinations is on your bucket list.


The Great Wall of China (above)

One of the longest standing walls in the world, it’s easy to understand why it made our top-five list. Over 2,000 years old and spanning a length that’s greater than 5,000 miles, it’s colloquial to Chinese history. An accessible portion is just adjacent to Beijing, about 70 miles from the city. According to various historical records, some of the portions of the wall are dated to 700 B.C. Built using slave and prison labor, it was constructed to offer added security to the nation during the dynasty era. Today, it gets more than 10 million visitors annually. Make sure you plan your visit around the holidays to get the best hotel rates and for a less crowded experience.

 

Louvre parisThe Louvre in Paris, France

Some of the most sought after and priceless works of art are housed in the Louvre in Paris. From Monet to Picasso, you will see some of the rarest paintings and sculptures ever created. While you can certainly see these in online images or magazines, there’s nothing like having the real thing before your very eyes. Once a fortress, The Louvre was opened to public tours in the late 1700s. It’s now the most popular of all museums in the world, getting over 8 million visitors each year. Of course, it’s located in Paris, a must-see on any good bucket list.

 

Grand Canal, Venice, ItalyVenice, Italy

Comprised of more than 115 islands, which are connected by a sophisticated system of canals, Venice is truly a beautiful and unique destination. But the city sinks about two-inches per decade, so its beauty won’t be accessible forever. Filled with ancient and preserved buildings that date back to the Renaissance, you will also find plenty of museums, art galleries and tours that will keep you occupied for the large majority of your stay. When you are not busy catching sites, make sure you take a romantic gondola ride for two down the canals.

Pyramids, Egypt

The Great Pyramids of Giza, Egypt

Listed as one of the Wonders of World, the Great Pyramid of Giza is awe-inspiring. The pyramid eclipses the Nile River, and decorates the landscape with is grandeur; a true landmark of epic proportions. Over 4,000 years old, it was created during the fourth dynasty of Pharaoh Khufu and exceeds heights of 450 feet at its pinnacle. Millions of hand-carved limestone rocks were constructed using 2,000 workers who toiled for decades. A short camel ride from Cairo will take you here. Just make sure you dress for the desert before you head out.

 

Grand Canyon, ArizonaGrand Canyon, Arizona

An artful masterpiece that was carved out of the ground by Mother Nature awaits you in Northern Arizona: the Grand Canyon. It’s 18-miles wide and spans over 280 miles, connecting the Colorado River and Arizona. Whether you just want to take in the sights, go on a donkey, horse or helicopter tour, test your grit on the glass bottom skywalk or go river rafting, the choice is yours. By and far, it there’s one thing that you see before you die, make sure that the Grand Canyon is near the very top of the list.

    I’ve got some suggestions for your blog you might be interested in hearing.

    Either way, great blog and I look forward to seeing it grow
    over time.

  2. Hey, how’s it going?

    I want to pass along some very important news that everyone needs to hear!

    In December of 2017, Donald Trump made history by recognizing Jerusalem as the captial of Israel. Why is this big news? Because by this the Jewish people of Israel are now able to press forward in bringing about the Third Temple prophesied in the Bible.

    The Jewish people deny Jesus as their Messiah and have stated that their Messiah has been identified and is waiting to be revealed. They say this man will rule the world under a one world religion called “spiritualism”.

    They even printed a coin to raise money for the Temple with Donald Trumps face on the front and with king Cyrus'(who built the second Temple) behind him. On the back of the coin is an image of the third Temple.

    The Bible says this false Messiah who seats himself in the Third Temple will be thee antichrist that will bring about the Great Tribulation, though the Jewish people believe he will bring about world peace. It will be a false peace for a period of time. You can watch interviews of Jewish Rabbi’s in Israel speaking of these things. They have their plans set in place. It is only years away!

    More importantly, the power that runs the world wants to put a RFID microchip in our body making us total slaves to them. This chip matches perfectly with the Mark of the Beast in the Bible, more specifically Revelation 13:16-18:

    He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

    Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666.

    Referring to the last days, this could only be speaking of a cashless society, which we have yet to see, but are heading towards. Otherwise, we could still buy or sell without the mark amongst others if physical money was still currency. RFID microchip implant technology will be the future of a one world cashless society containing digital currency. It will be implanted in the right-hand or the forehead, and we cannot buy or sell without it! We must grow strong in Jesus. AT ALL COSTS, DO NOT TAKE IT!

    Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name.” (Revelation 14:9-11).

    People have been saying the end is coming for many years, but we need two key things. One, the Third Temple, and two, the technology for a cashless society to fulfill the prophecy of the Mark of the Beast.
