Travel bucket list that need a plan in advance
During these challenging times most of us are thinking about the possibilities of traveling in the next period of time. Given that many countries still have traveling restrictions, we can only start thinking in perspective. This could mean to write down our travel bucket list for the next holiday. It is now the perfect time to do some research and to get informed about the next holiday destinations. That being said, we prepared a travel bucket list with the destinations that need a plan in advance, so you can start working on it.
The total solar eclipse experience

Have you ever witnessed. the nature’s greatest experience during the eclipse? What’s the fuss about and when is the next eclipse? During a total solar eclipse, for a few minutes the world goes dark. Even more, you will be able to see the sun’s corona which is just amazing!
The phenomenon happened in Chile and Argentina on Dec. 14, 2020, then again in Antarctica (just close to South Shetland) on Dec. 4, 2021. After that it’s the whale shark-watching paradise of Exmouth Peninsula. Next is Ningaloo reef off Western Australia’s Coral Coast on April 20, 2023 before, once again, North America gets a turn. On April 8, 2024, a long, deep total solar eclipse unlike anything seen in North America for centuries will rip through Mexico (with Mazatlán being the prime spot), the U.S. (Texas to Maine — passing right over Niagara Falls) and Canada (Ontario to Newfoundland).
Exploring the East African Safari

An East African safari is a must-do at least once in your life. But keep in mind that if you’re only going to go once there’s a lot to pack in. A visit to Kenya’s Masai Mara National Reserve is also essential and don’t overlook the plains of the Serengeti National Park in Tanzania; together they make up the 11,500-square-mile Serengeti ecosystem.
It’s through this vast corridor that the Great Wildebeest Migration of 1.5 million creatures take place, but it’s an all-year event: the risky river crossings occur in July and August, while from January to March wildebeest calves are born in the southern Serengeti. The latter includes the incredible Ngorongoro Conservation Area, a large volcanic caldera teeming with wildlife.
Road Trip on Historic Route 66
If you enjoy driving, this epic road trip must be written down on your travel bucket list! The 2,448-mile journey from Chicago to LA along what’s also known as the Will Rogers Highway, the “Mother Road,” and “America’s Main Street,” is one of America’s most iconic drives. The original Route 66 — designated in 1926 — begins at a sign on Adams Street, Chicago on the shores of Lake Michigan, cuts through Illinois, Missouri, Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, and ends at the Pacific Ocean in Santa Monica, California.
Decommissioned in 1986, actually traveling on the original Route 66 means taking detours and can be long-winded. Anyway, this trip is mostly about the visiting the American towns, cities, and attractions along the way. For instance, some of this road trip attractions include the Route 66 Drive-in for 1950s-style movies in Springfield and the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum in Oklahoma City. If the Detours not counted, the drive takes about two weeks. Here’s where and when to go and how much it costs to do Route 66.
Enjoy your next holiday!
