One of the best creations of Bollywood till date is “Zindagi milegi na dobara”. It taught us the true value of life, that we should cherish every moment of it. Some experiences are worth dying for but only those experiences can teach you how to live to the fullest. There is so much to do and so little time. Everybody has a list of things that he/she wants to do before dying. The list, of course, varies from person to person. However, there are some things that should be on everybody’s bucket list.
1. Travel the worldImage source: https://blog.speek.com/resources/wp-content/uploads/2014/01/tumblr_m2zjb16ICA1r0ikiqo1_500.jpg
There is a big difference between a traveler and a tourist. Most of us are tourists. A traveler does not need anything more than his/her backpack and camera. A tourist, on the other hand, can not even think of going out without packing everything and booking everything.
Everybody should try being a traveler at least once in life. Travelling would change the way you look at the world. It would change you for better.
As they say, “Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.” Travelling the world is the first step to begin your life.
2. Sky diving/ bungee jumpingImage source: http://www.audiocompass.in/wp-content/uploads/2014/06/skydive.jpg
Just to be clear, jumping on a trampoline is not called Bungee Jumping.
Have you ever had the dream where you were free-falling?
Do you want to feel the adrenaline rush gushing through every single vein in your body?
If yes, then sky diving is the answer for you. Scared of heights? You HAVE to try it. If sky diving looks too risky, try bungee jumping.
The moment you are in the sky, falling, you will forget everything, every stress. In that moment, you will know what amazing gift life is.
3. Scuba diving/ snorkelingImage source: http://www.sportdiver.com/files/imagecache/enlarged_image/_images/201210/rm-05.jpg
This planet is full of wonders. The most amazing of the wonders is the marine world. There is a whole another world under the waters which can thrill your soul. Watching the marine life up close can calm and soothe your ever-distracted mind.
The beauty of the marine kingdom has no bounds. It is so unexplored but so surreal. The feeling of little creatures swimming past your body. The feeling of looking at the most splendid combination of colors is inexpressible.
Scuba diving would make you feel more alive. It would make you realize that nature has the most amazing architects and painters. It would let you appreciate life more. It would make you realize the vastness of the universe.
4. Discover paradise
Real beauty lies in the most unexplored places.
Tourist guides, travel companies, etc. would not tell you where to find paradise.
You have to look for it on your own. Go as remote you can. It is in the most unusual places, you live your dreams.
There are so many places that are beautiful but underrated.
There are so many villages that have their own language, culture and scenic beauty but are undiscovered.
Backpack through your country and find your own paradise.
5. The Northern Lights
Not many of us know about this but the Northern lights is something you really do not want to miss. Also known as Aurora Borealis, it is nature’s own light show. It occurs in the high latitude regions and is totally unpredictable.
If you’re lucky enough, you will surely get to witness this.
It looks as if somebody is showering colors on the Earth from the sky. It can be seen in Sweden, Iceland, Norway, Finland, Canada, and Scotland.
If you happen to visit Alaska (which should also be on your bucket list, by the way), your chances of witnessing this spectacular phenomenon are high.
Go away from the city light, build a camp, light a fire and wait for the magic to happen.
6. A road trip to some distant place with your best friends
This is my personal favorite. Our best friends know us the best and we love them despite of their flaws. They’re the people we enjoy the most with.
Everybody should go on a road trip with their best of friends and revive their love for each other.
It would not only rejuvenate your bond, it would be the best time of your life.
So, gather all your buddies and plan a trip to your dream destination.
