Are you looking to get away from it all? Maybe it’s time for you to go on a life-changing adventure! This is more than just visiting Disneyworld or going up to the cottage. These are trips that are guaranteed to make your friends and family jealous. Here are a few once-in-a-lifetime trip ideas that should be on your bucket list.
1. Galapagos Islands
Head off to these remote Ecuadorian islands, 600 miles out into the Pacific to experience natural phenomenon you can’t see anywhere else in the world. You’ll get to actually trace the steps of Charles Darwin, who explored the area on a research expedition in 1835. Go to the largest island of Isabela where you can visit a tortoise breeding center and snorkel with giant sharks. However, by far the best way to experience these idyllic islands is by cruising the ocean on a 100-passenger boat, such as the Silver Galapagos, where travelers are given a tour of the islands from expert naturalists.
Prepare for a trip back in time by visiting the iconic Pyramids of Giza, which date back 4,500 years. After doing that, take a 90-minute flight to Aswan, where you can board the Steam ship Sudan and travel the Nile in style! This over 125-year-old luxury steamer has played host to many royalty and celebrities over the years, including Agatha Christie who was inspired to write Death on the Niles after travelling on the boat. While on the cruise, you’ll be able to stop at the temples of Edfu and Kom Ombo, before heading to Karnak, a 2,000-year-old city built by the great pharaohs.
