My 2019 Travel Bucket List

Travelling is a part of life. It’s expensive but it’s fun and it helps us relieve our stresses and forget our day to day problems. Travelling also gives us abundant knowledge regarding various things and it gives us an insight on how the world really is. I’ve only been to three places in my life; Dubai, London and the States. But I want to travel more. I want to explore more and I want to see more of the beautiful places God has created.

So today, I’m gonna list down my travel bucket list which you guys too could follow!

  • The Great Pyramid of Gaza
  • Walk the Great Wall of China – I wanted to walk the Great Wall since I was a kid!
  • Visit the Colosseum
  • Trek to Machu Picchu
  • See the Taj Mahal – Did you know? although I’m born in India, I have never once gone to see Taj Mahal! Incredible, isn’t it?
  • Visit Amazon Rainforest and River
  • See the Eiffel Tower – I wish to go there with my future husband…It would be romantic, wouldn’t it?
  • Visit Easter Island – I have always wanted to see those statues. They look so mysterious as though they have some kind of a story.
  • Visit Sydney

Once a year, go someplace you’ve never been before.

Dalai Lama
  • Visit the Summer Palace in China
  • Visit Hagia Sophia
  • Dive on the Great Barrier Reef
  • Visit Grand Canyon
  • Sail to the Statue of Liberty
  • Climb the Kilimanjaro – I wonder how that experience would be.
  • See Mount Rushmore
  • Admire the Northern Lights in Norway
  • Discover the Iguazu Falls
  • Trek through the Himalayas
  • Watch the Victoria Falls
  • Participate in a Wild life safari in South Africa
  • Go to Iceland to see the Great Geysir
  • Visit the Louvre Museum
  • Go to Venice
  • See my reflection at Salar de Uyuni
  • Discover the Jeito Grotto
  • Climb Mount Fuji
  • Visit the Moma Museum
  • Wander at the Canals of Amsterdam
  • Visit the Glow-worm cave
  • Visit the Great Mosque of Cordoba
  • Admire the Forbidden City in Beijing
  • Get splashed at Niagara Falls
  • See the Leaning Tower of Pisa
  • Walk on Giant’s Causeway
  • Visit the White House
  • Walk at Times Square
  • Climb the stairs at Tianmen Mountain

Travel is never a matter of money but of courage.

Paolo Coelho
  • Visit London’s Warner Bros Studio
  • See the Great Sphinx
  • Hike on the Rainbow Mountain
  • Visit Quito
  • Go to Jeju Island
  • Go to Al-Masjid an-Nabawi
  • Admire the Blue Flames at Ijen Volcano
  • Ride a horse in Mongolia
  • Shop at Tsim Sha Tsui

And I guess that’s it? Yep, this is my bucket list and man, I would need to save A LOT of money if I want to travel these many places. No worries though, I will sit down and plan everything very carefully. I certainly don’t want to miss out on these beautiful and mysterious places. I want to die while knowing that I’ve seen most of the world that was so amazingly created without any flaws.

Guys let me know which places you wish to visit. What is the one thing in your travel bucket list that you’re looking forward to?

A Poem for My Grandpa

Just seeing my Grandfather living his last breaths breaks my heart…I wish I could be near him at this very moment; holding his hand, talking to him, telling him that everything is going to be alright. I miss his voice and the way he used to praise me from time to time, saying how patient I was helping him and feeding him. Gosh, I just miss him so much right now. I can’t stop my tears whenever I think about him. I video called him yesterday and he couldn’t even talk properly.

I know he doesn’t have long to live but I wish I could just be beside him. You know, I still feel that I haven’t taken care of him much. I suddenly feel so guilty and I’m overwhelmed with regrets. There were times when I got slightly annoyed or didn’t listen to him much and now those things are kind of getting to me. You know what they say, “You only know you love them when they’ve gone away.”

But I want him to die peacefully. I don’t want him suffering with pain. If he just passes away in his sleep, I think that would make me happy. Here is a little poem which I wrote for him, but I don’t think I can read it to him. Maybe my grandmother would, but…anyway, here I go.

“You held me in your arms,
fed me, played with me and
helped me sleep at night.

You made up stories,
just to make me smile,
You took me to places,
I could never find.

I can’t thank you enough,
for the things you’ve done for me.
You’ve given me so much joy all these years,
that I will never forget even if I’m drowning in tears.

I can’t see you go away,
Grandpa, I love you so much,
but unfortunately, we all get old,
and some day we all must fade away.

I only pray that you are happy,
until your last breath.
I only pray that I get to see you for one last time,
before your silent and blissful death.”

Grandpa, I love you.

My Favorite Disney Movies (Part 1)

I am not a movie geek but just like everyone else, I love watching a good movie. I know that some of the movies that I will list, might not be to your liking because no doubt, everyone has their own likes and dislikes. But still, I propose you continue reading this post. Who knows, you might find something that we both like in common! I don’t even watch movies that much unless it has good reviews, or the trailer is like super epic. Additionally, I’m very choosy when it comes to watching movies. Sometimes I have this urge to watch an action film, but when I’m just getting ready to watch that movie with a bucket of popcorn, my mind dramatically changes, saying, “Why you watching an action movie? Watch a romance movie!” Seriously, it’s so annoying because I had been wasting my precious hour to find the right print with the right subtitles of the freaking action movie!

Sorry…I just hate it when that happens.

However, strangely, I happen to like and watch more Disney based movies. That’s what’s magical about Disney; anyone can watch it. Be you young or old, you will understand and feel the emotions the characters are feeling. I love Disney but unfortunately, I have never been to Disneyland… Let me just go inside a hole and cry….

So, these are the 10 thins which you found out about me just now. I wonder if you and I have something in common or not…Hm, if we do, will you give me a holler? We can then maybe discuss our lives over a tub of ice cream or dark chocolate bar.
