Do you love to know the unknown? The answer is probably yes that’s why you are reading this blog. Sometimes you are your best company. It’s a journey of self-discovery where you can experience the world uniquely. Solo travel is gaining popularity day by day. At least I believe something you should do alone. Maybe you are already on the road or at your house sitting in front of your laptop like me, but maybe your mind is travelling in Greece. This is your go-to resource for your Travel Bucket List.

It will be focused on the world, but I will create a blog on unique Indian experiences for solo travellers.

So let me start.

Trekking to Machu Picchu, Peru:

I kept it the first on my list because It’s my dream spot, but why? It’s one of the most iconic archaeological sites in the world. It always attracts travellers as it has some magic. It not only carries the title of UNESCO World Heritage Site, but its serenity is unmatchable.

The Inca Trail is the most renowned trekking route to Machu Picchu, taking hikers through diverse ecosystems, from lush jungles to high-altitude mountain passes. The journey lasts for several days, and hikers camp along the trail, immersing themselves in the raw beauty of nature.

Your breath will stop when you cross the sun gate. The sun rising over the ancient ruins creates a surreal panorama, taking you back to the Inca civilization’s glory days.

You will witness the stone structures, terraces, and temples providing a glimpse into the ancient Inca way of life. It has to be on the top of your bucket list.

Safari in the Serengeti, Tanzania

Don’t you love wildlife? Who will say no? How will you feel when you see the wildebeests and zebras running beside you? Guess what? You will Encounter majestic lions, elephants, and other exotic wildlife in their natural habitat.

It’s a paradise, it’s a heaven, for the wild creatures. And do you think you won’t feel the same? Its supine grasslands and abundant wildlife make it one of Africa’s most iconic safari destinations.

Walking into the Serengeti on a safari allows you to witness the circle of life unfolding before your eyes. Predators like lions, cheetahs, and leopards prowl the savannah, preying on the abundant herbivores that call the Serengeti home.

Northern Lights in Norway

Do you believe in Magic? If not, then you should start but not the card’s Magic. It’s the Magic of nature. Will you dance in the lights of the Magic?

The Northern Lights, the Aurora Borealis, is a natural light display caused by solar particles colliding with the Earth’s atmosphere.

The best time to witness the Northern Lights in Norway is during the winter months when the nights are the longest, and the skies are darkest.

It would be best if you don’t miss the mesmerizing experience. Popular destinations for aurora hunting include Tromsø, the Lofoten Islands, and the North Cape.

TRAVEL MORE, WORK LESS

Immersing in the Culture of Kyoto, Japan

Do you know why Japan is one of the growing countries? No, I will not discuss this, but Japan is rich because of its culture. So will you miss the chance to wander through the enchanting streets of Kyoto, Japan’s cultural heart?

With its rich cultural heritage, Kyoto is a city that seamlessly blends tradition with modernity. As the former imperial capital of Japan, Kyoto is home to some of the country’s most iconic cultural landmarks.

But wait, do you know the best time to visit Japan? Visiting Kyoto during cherry blossom season is a surreal experience. The city’s parks and temples are adorned with delicate pink blossoms, creating a picturesque landscape like a fairy tale.

Great Barrier Reef, Australia

I remeber I read about the Great Barrier Reef in my geography book in class 8. It was so fascinating. Till now, I was talking about the wonders on land, but it’s the wonder under water. Snorkel or scuba dive in the vibrant coral reefs and encounter various marine life, including colourful fish, turtles, and majestic manta rays.

The Great Barrier Reef is the world’s largest coral reef system and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It spans over 2,300 kilometres along Australia’s northeastern coast and is home to a vast ecosystem of marine species.
