There are nearly 200 countries on the planet, 195 to be exact, with over 2 million cities, so just imagine how long it would take you to explore every corner of the globe. Look, if you were flying in the world?s fastest private jet charter, not only would you be traveling in style and comfort, you?d also be able to globe-trot without a care in the world. But what if, like the rest of the 6 billion people on the planet, you don?t own a private jet? Well, you find alternative ways to explore. And with that comes some cool things to see and do in 2022. Here?s what you can tick off your bucket list edition!?
Hot Air Balloon Ride- Bucket List Edition
Not only is this activity romantic (if that?s what you are after), but many have described hot air ballooning as a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Since the balloon moves in the direction of the wind, passengers hardly ever feel it. And it transports you to a different world. You get to see a city or town in a completely different light. What?s more, most cities have their own unique hot air balloon ride, so no two experiences will be the same.
Explore a museum
Let?s go back to our roots. Over the years, museums have kind of faded into the background since technology pretty much took over. We no longer have to visit a museum physically to see its contents. Which is great, but nothing beats stepping into the Louvre or the Museum of Modern Arts, right? Even the Guggenheim Museum; all amazing spaces that are preserving the Earth?s most precious art and artifacts. Let?s make going to the museum a thing again. And how can this be a bucket list item, you ask? Simple, make a list of the museums you?ve still to see in your town, city, or state and make a day of it. Look out for any exhibitions, and who knows, you might see King Tutankhamun?s exhibit.?
Explore your city via helicopter
We recognize police and news helicopters, but they are also meant as a tool to explore your city. And boy, is this a wonderful way to explore. If this has been on your bucket list, it?s time to tick it off in 2022. What makes flying in a helicopter so amazing is just how you will see the city. Those epic views only visible from the sky are majestic and, again, once in a lifetime. Grab a friend or your partner, or spoil your kids, because this is one activity you?ll speak about for years to come.
Each city boasts at least one fine dining restaurant that is booked out months in advance, and it?s precisely where you should be going. If you are a foodie, you?ll already know which restaurants are top tier and worth every dollar you have available to spend. But what makes it a bucket list item? Some of these epic eateries offer dishes using ingredients that are so expensive and rare that it makes no sense to buy them and then cook them yourself. Think Wagyu beef, the best and most costly cut of meat on the planet. Make a list of the fine dining restaurants in your city and check out the menu. Select your once-in-a-lifetime dining experience according to your taste and, voila, another item to tick off your bucket list.
Explore the ocean in a submarine- Bucket List Edition
Look, we aren?t saying you should join the Navy or anything like that, but many coastal cities offer their own unique submarine experiences. The ocean is a scary yet wonderful place to explore, and there is breathtaking marine life, coral reef (depending on where you are in the world), and more. Imagine seeing a gorgeous shark swim right by you without the fear of getting attacked? Amazing! The Atlantis Submarine in Mexico will afford you this out-of-this-world experience.?
Go on safari
So, there are several types of safaris. We all know the usual African safaris where you get to see majestic wildlife that truly sets Africa apart from the rest of the world. But you can also find water safaris, photographic safaris, walking safaris, cycling safaris, and horseback safaris. If you live in a beautiful state like Texas, you can opt for a wonderful horseback safari and see and take in some beautiful sites. Looking to stretch your legs? Check out the walking tours in and around your city; you might discover a few hidden gems. Many cities have underground tunnels that were used to store and transport goods during the industrial revolution.
