Places to visit bucket list

Ross_ScopeRoss_Scope Community Team Posts: 2,000 Pioneering
Hello :) 

After yesterday's discussion about your favourite places that you've been, I thought I should make it into a little weekend duo and ask what places are on your bucket list? What country, city or other location would you love to go to in the future?

A few of mine would be
  • California
  • Berlin
  • Stonehenge
  • Iceland
  • I'd love to go to one of the Disneyland locations one day too

    Now I've seen a few of yours @janer1967 I'm regretting not picking them myself :D 

    I'd most love to visit Lapland and go on a Caribbean cruise, both great suggestions :)

    Thanks @Ross_Scope You have got me wanting to go away now with this post but I suppose that wont be happening in the current pandemic
  • leeCalleeCal Member Posts: 2,672 Disability Gamechanger
    I’d like to visit niagra falls, and go to Venice. Also see the Rockies and Canada, and see the ice hotel and northern lights. I’d also like to walk a while on the Great Wall of China and visit the Himalayas and Tibet. So many lovely places to go, I expect I’ll think of some more later.
  • 66Mustang66Mustang Member Posts: 3,689 Disability Gamechanger
    I would go anywhere, I’m not fussy, I just love travelling.:smiley:

    I do prefer the non tourist areas though. When I go to a foreign place I prefer to go away from the areas popular with tourists and instead see the authentic side of the place.

    Yes that's definitely true @janer1967, it's certainly going to be a while before my next holiday.

    All great suggestions @leeCal, hopefully you get to some of those one day :)  The Northern Lights and Venice in particular look stunning.

    That's interesting @66Mustang, I see where you're coming from. The heavily populated areas can get quite irritating after a while, almost feels like you don't get enough peace to enjoy your surroundings. I definitely enjoy getting that feeling of authenticity whenever I visit somewhere.

    I've been to a few of the places mentioned. Venice is stunning and a favourite, been there twice. I love Italy and have seen a good deal of it. 
    But the one place I have always wanted to see and is on my bucket list is Monument Valley in Arizona - Utah.
  • Ross_ScopeRoss_Scope Community Team Posts: 2,000 Pioneering
    Thanks for sharing @Dragonslayer, that sounds like a good choice :) What is it that makes you want to visit there in particular?

    Just to add a few more

    Australia and New Zealand

    Yes, the Black Forest in Germany (where the gateaux comes from 😂)
    some beautiful places in Switzerland and Austria.
  • janer1967janer1967 Community champion Posts: 6,094 Disability Gamechanger
    Agree Austria is beautiful was my first trip abroad but that was 38 years ago 

    Always remember  glacier standing in the snow with sun blazing down 
  • DragonslayerDragonslayer Member Posts: 615 Pioneering
    @Ross_Scope Its has the most beautiful scenery and rock formations. It is also a sacred place to native Americans. It is the place John Ford (film director) used to film westerns a long time ago now. 
  • Tori_ScopeTori_Scope Community Team Posts: 2,747 Disability Gamechanger
    I'd love to go to Cuba before it gets fully Americanised.

    I'm half Canadian so I've been to a couple of places in Canada, but I'd really love to go to Vancouver.

    I also want to visit Europe. Pretty vague I know, but the only time I've been is France for one day in primary school, so I'd love to properly go and visit some places.

    Sounds great @Dragonslayer, I hope you get to go there one day :) 

    And I'm somewhat similar @Tori_Scope, I've been to Germany and Ibiza but that's about it, there are so many places in Europe I'd love to visit. My partner wants to do a European road trip one day.

    Maybe a cruise would be ideal to stop off at many places in Europe (take me with you though)

    Scope online community members trip around Europe @janer1967? I'm sure it'd be easy to organise... :D 

    A cruise or roadtrip are great ideas. I like the idea of interrailing too.

    That would be good @Tori_Scope could be your mission to organise 
  • 66Mustang66Mustang Member Posts: 3,689 Disability Gamechanger
    I like the idea of a European road trip!

    If it wasn’t obvious from my username I love cars/driving, as well as travelling. I thought a road trip would be a great idea and for me a way of combining two passions.

    Ideally a GT (grand tourer) car is needed first :)

    On a more realistic note I do hope to take my Motability car into Europe - even just France - at least once before I have to hand it back. :)

    Flying high in a hot air balloon over the Grand Canyon.
    Much better I think than in a helicopter.

  • 66Mustang66Mustang Member Posts: 3,689 Disability Gamechanger
    @Dragonslayer more peaceful definitely

    I’d like to see the alps too and parts of Canada and a Norwegian fjord or two.
  • DragonslayerDragonslayer Member Posts: 615 Pioneering
    Full trip from Paris to the middle east on the Orient sxpress.

    Maybe get involved in an Agatha Christie murder. Lol. 😁
  • chiariedschiarieds Community champion Posts: 6,231 Disability Gamechanger
    @Dragonslayer - a trip on the Orient Express was on my wish list too; I'd get to re-visit Venice, but also see Vienna, which I've not visited.
    I can't choose between seeing Austria or Venice again, so this would definitely be on my 'bucket list.'
    I'd also like to go to Barcelona, & visit Figueres to see Salvador Dali's birthplace & art as he's my favourite artist.
  • DragonslayerDragonslayer Member Posts: 615 Pioneering
    I would also love to see Vienna @chiarieds. I have been to Barcelona on a weekend trip. I loved it, but sadly caught flu while I was there, luckily it was towards the end of the trip but it did make the journey home weird. 

  • DragonslayerDragonslayer Member Posts: 615 Pioneering
    I have been lucky to see many of the great places in Europe, and there are many places I still want to see. But now as I am with pain from walking and the problems it brings to sometimes even stand upright. I wonder if I will get to see more.

    Hi @Ross_Scope
                                  Sorry a little late to the party, this is a great thread thank you for starting it :) I am planning a road trip to America with my brothers and sister. We are planning it for 2026 to coincide with the 2026 World Cup (not that the World Cup is the most important element :) ) It's definitely a bucket list wish but I like planning :) My friend has helped me create a bucket list and I have to do one a year, NO PRESSURE :) I know they are not for everyone but it seems to work for me, I wasn't bothered before but you never stop learning about yourself :) Thank you for letting me ramble :) Thank you 
  • Tori_ScopeTori_Scope Community Team Posts: 2,747 Disability Gamechanger
    Wow @WestHam06! That'd be an incredible experience! 

    What else do you have on the bucket list?

    Hi @Tori_Scope,
                                 Thank you, it certainly would and we would be extremely fortunate to experience it.  I have many things on my bucket list, it seems to be growing quicker than they are being ticked off :) These things include completing the London Marathon for charity, helping to build a school abroad, climbing a mountain, and riding a motorbike on route 66 in America.   Please may I ask, do you have a bucket list? Thank you
  • WestHam06WestHam06 Community champion, Scope Volunteer Posts: 1,027 Pioneering
    Hi @Chloe_Scope
                                   Thank you and if we manage to do it, I will most certainly let you know what we get up too :) Please may I ask, do you have a bucket list? Thank you. 
  • Ross_ScopeRoss_Scope Community Team Posts: 2,000 Pioneering
    I hope you can get back to Europe one day @Dragonslayer  and visit some of those places on your bucket list :) What would you say is the best part of Europe? Where would you recommend? 

    That sounds fantastic @WestHam06, doing it in 2026 gives you plenty of time to plan it, do you think you will try and attend a few World Cup matches while you're there?

    I'm. sure I will get back to Europe sometime in the future. @Ross_Scope.  My all time favourite place is Ita!y. I've seen Venice twice, Florence twice, Pizza, Rome. The Sistine Chape! Is awesome. Attended, just by Chance a ceremony held by the Pope. And been to a few other place in the country and still have many other places to see over there.
    My condition now holds me back from doing things now. It is something I have to put behind me and deal with.
    Covid doesn't help either. I did put 2021 in my mind as a full year holiday, but needed a operation to help with my condition, but the virus had other ideas.
    The future for everyone seems daunting to say the least. Especially now another spike is looming. Like everyone else I am in a sit and wait scenario.

    @WestHam06 A USA trip sounds good. I agree waiting until 2026 gives you a lot of time to prepare and hopefully by then things like travel will be back to normal. I also would like to go to the USA and hire a Ford Mustang as it is one of my favourite cars.
  • 66Mustang66Mustang Member Posts: 3,689 Disability Gamechanger
    I agree it is sad that Covid has put a stop to a lot of travel plans. It is a bit less exotic but we have had to postpone my Scotland trip sadly. :( But, I would rather go when there are less restrictions than go up there now and have to work around everything going on.
  • Ross_ScopeRoss_Scope Community Team Posts: 2,000 Pioneering
    Great suggestions @LolasLovingauntyuk, I'd love to go to the Northern Lights and Disneyland. They both look so beautiful.

    I have been to Disney both Florida and Paris but would love to go back to Florida and take my son, he would love to go to the Space Centre and also the Universal Studios which I didnt get chance to visit when I went 
  • WestHam06WestHam06 Community champion, Scope Volunteer Posts: 1,027 Pioneering
    Hi @Ross_Scope
                                  Yeah, that will be the plan to try to get to see a couple of games whilst we are out there. I think we would be extremely lucky to see a game but even if we don't, to soak up the atmosphere and just be part of it would be amazing :) Please may I ask, have you ever been to America? Thank you. 

    Hi @66Mustang
                              Thank you :) That sounds amazing, I'm not too familiar with cars but I have just looked the Ford Mustang up on google and it's like an awesome car. Please may I ask, have you driven one before? Thank you.  
  • Tori_ScopeTori_Scope Community Team Posts: 2,747 Disability Gamechanger
    Those all sound amazing @WestHam06! I don't really have a bucket list. There are probably a few things in mind that I'd like to do, mainly places I'd like to go. I have been thinking I should make one, especially seeing as it feels like I'm not doing too much outside of work at the moment due to coronavirus.
