We only live once so it’s important to wow ourselves with unique experiences whenever we can. We should aim for moments of awe and uplifting amazement, those moments when we truly appreciate the wonder of the world around us. Here are some suggestions for things that could make their way onto your ultimate bucket list:
- Diving in the Great Blue Hole
Off the coast of Belize lies the world’s largest undersea sinkhole. It’s an off-putting dark blue colour but don’t let that fool you. It’s a mecca for divers and one the most unusual and stunning dive sites on earth.
- The Salt Flats of Bolivia
This is one of world’s wonders you might not have heard of. For those who enjoy photography, you don’t get a better canvas than this for your arty shots. Due to a thin film of water forming on the surface of the salt flats, a natural mirror is produced on a massive scale, making a surreal and enchanting sight to see.
- Watching a Formula One Grand Prix
There is nothing quite as exhilarating and life-affirming as feeling the roar of the engines, seeing the dangerous speeds and experiencing the thrill and excitement of a real Grand Prix race in the flesh. For the ultimate track day in a serious glamourous location, consider booking the Monaco F1 Paddock Club with edgeglobalevents.com/f1-paddock-club/f1-paddock-club-monaco
- China’s Danxia Landforms
This geological park is also known as the ‘eye candy of Zhangye’ and once you see it, you’ll know why. It’s a mountain range with a difference, in that it’s technicolour. The geological anomaly is the result of the erosion of red sandstone and harsh desert conditions over 24 million years. Now there is a stunning rainbow effect which is best viewed during dawn or dusk.
- High Dining
Ever fancied eating your dinner in the clouds? No, this isn’t an airplane meal but dinner on a crane! Dinner in the Sky is a unique and unusual dining experience that tours the globe. Each day, a crane hoists up 22 lucky diners into the sky where they feast on a 5-course meal made by various different world-class chefs!
- Lavender in France
Between June and August in Provence, everything comes up smelling of …..well, lavender! The fields bloom in this heavenly corner of France, bursting into a sea of purple as far as the eye can see and the sweet aroma is just gorgeous. Picture-postcard beautiful, it’s definitely an event not to be missed.
- Shark Cage Diving
This is for the brave-hearted, but what an adrenaline-rushing activity this is! Entering the deep, dark depths to meet the ocean’s most feared predator seems like madness, but those who have braved it describe it as a serene, exhilarating and strangely peaceful experience. When the bait is dropped and the feeding frenzy begins, you’ll be glad you’re in a cage!
