From Your Bucket List To Your Favorite Memories List: Get These Sights Seen Before It's Too Late

Time to tick some things off your bucket list? Here are three you should move over to your ‘favourite memories’ list before it’s too late.


The Northern Lights
Also known as the Aurora Borealis, there is no human influence whatsoever in this sight. Instead, it is one of nature's true miracles, which we are lucky enough to get to witness. The best place to see the Northern Lights is within the Aurora Zone. One country within this zone is Greenland. This is a remote country populated by very few. Thanks to these low levels of population, this also means less pollution and more nature! As a result, you can see the Northern Lights in Greenland in all of the glory. The lights up above will be only enhanced by the stunning vistas and natural scenery below the skies. The best places to see the lights are areas not suffering from ‘light pollution’. However, as time goes on and the world keeps spinning, these places may become fewer. So, go and see the Northern Lights now, while you have choice of viewing spots and clarity on your side.


The Floating City of Venice
The romantic Italian city of Venice is easily one of the most unique sites in the whole earth. It consists of 124 clusters of islands, and it dates back to the 7th century. A whole city floats upon the water, complete with houses, shops and restaurants. You can hire a gondola to take in the city from the water, or just enjoy it on foot. Whichever method you choose, you’re sure to be totally enchanted by what you find. However, it is sadly not all good news. In the last century, Venice sank 23cms. Since then, authorities have been working hard to fix this issue. Now this isn’t the main problem… rising sea levels are. The water surrounding and below Venice was slowly rising for quite some time. In time, a combination of these two factors or just the one threatens to take Venice for good. For this reason, be sure to move seeing Venice from your Bucket List to your favourite memories list sooner rather than later. While we won’t lose in for many years yet, annual floods also cause chaos. So head to Italy, hire that Gondola and enjoy what may one day be a lost city.


The Amazon Rainforest

Many of us get to experience the sea, to see a mountain and to stroll on a beach in our lifetimes. However, far fewer people ever get to see a rainforest. That’s because in some parts of the world they are non-existent. And sadly, where they do stand, they are slowly being destroyed. The Amazon Rainforest is the largest tropical rainforest in the whole world, and is found in South America. While it is predominantly in Brazil, it also stretches out into places like Peru and Colombia. Inside this 5.5 million km2 area are around 30 million people and many millions of rare animals and plants. You might think that these stats alone would mean we were all doing our best to look after the rainforest. However, this is simply not the case. Deforestation is one of the several man-made factors that is destroying it. Visit and support causes to protect this from happening further, now.

Here are just a few areas that you might like to focus on to get the ball rolling the right direction!
Your hairstyle can dramatically impact your overall appearance - it can speak volumes about your personality, influences, and interests if you want it to. Now, many of us stick to very safe styles that blend into the crowd. This is why you see so many people with their natural hair shades, long locks and blunt cuts with centre partings. But why not switch things up a bit. You don’t necessarily have to shave the sides and dye your hair a wild colour. A few subtle changes can make all the difference! Consider a fringe, switching to a natural colour that doesn’t happen to b…

If you’re planning on heading away from home at some point in the upcoming year, chances are that you have already looked into different destinations, different excursions and activities, and different ways of getting from A to B. But have you put much thought into who you are going to travel with? Your travel companion really can make or break a trip. A trip to somewhere that isn’t all too exciting and lacks things to see and do with someone you get on really well with will generally be better enjoyed than a trip to a stunning and luxurious location with someone you can’t stand. So, let’s take a moment to consider a few different companions that you might want to consider before agreeing to a trip and heading away!
