Following on from my Railway Bucket List earlier in the year, I’ve decided to do an Aviation Bucket List covering 10 flights that I really want to tick off at some point in my lifetime. It goes without saying that I’d like to tick off some of the great Business and First-class offerings available, but this is about the flights themselves and not the airlines or products.
From the Middle East we head back away from home for this instalment of 5 Places to Visit and find ourselves in Asia, earth’s largest continent. From the Ural Mountains in the west to the Bering strait in the east, Asia is possibly the world’s most diverse continent with plenty to see and do.
It’s been a while since I did a 5 places to visit post (previous ones are in the 'Bucket List' category), however a gap in my schedule has meant reviving them to cover places that I haven’t already listed. Having covered Europe, the Americas, Africa, and Oceania, for this post we head back towards home from the other side of the world and find ourselves in the Middle East.
Whilst the majority of the continent’s land mass is the nation of Australia, Oceania is actually made up of 14 different countries and 10,000 islands. Having previously travelled to Sydney and Melbourne, I’ve kept them off this list, and in fact only one Australian city features in my 5 Places to Visit in Australasia.
Crossing the Atlantic Ocean from South America, you land on the stunning continent of Africa, the next location for my ‘5 places’ series. From the plains of the Serengeti to the heights of Kilimanjaro, Africa is a beautiful and varying continent, and below are the five places that I really want to visit.
Inspired by a combination of Calm sleep stories and a similar post by Charlotte (@girlsonrails98) on twitter, I’ve decided to do a post covering my bucket list of railway journeys, ranging from West Country sleepers to one of the most remote railways in the world. I’ve divided these up into four sections covering Great Britain, Europe, the USA and the Rest of the World but they are definitely not definitive lists, as I’m sure there are some amazing journeys I’ve missed.
