Wanderlust Inspiration, 23 Places That You Need to Add to Your Bucket List
Rainbow Mountain, Peru
Peru has always been my number one dream destination. Always, from where I was 12 or something like that. Machu Picchu was and still is one of the places I want to visit the most. But I also always looking for new places that I can visit in Peru and when I found out about Rainbow Mountain, I was blown away.
Rainbow Mountain, China
The Rainbow Mountain in China is one of the country’s best-kept secrets.
I have to admit I have a thing for all of the coldest places, even though I hate being cold. Hah. Ohh, and all the adorable penguins.
In the Far East parts of Russia, is the Kamchatka Peninsula. Volcanoes, bears, and endless adventure opportunities.
Shimshal Lake, Pakistan
I don’t know about you, but for me, all of the countries ending with ”stan” are high on my bucket list. Often when I tell someone that I want to visit Pakistan people don’t get it. But how could I not want to?
Kerian Canyon, Iran
The same story with Iran, as with Pakistan.

Like I’ve already mentioned, I’m dying to go to Iceland. Iceland, though, especially lately became one of the most popular destinations and everyone goes there (and there is a reason for that, of course, it’s amazing). But I don’t see anyone going to Greenland. And why not? If you haven’t done it already, then now is the time to add Greenland to your bucket list.
Pamukkale also is gaining lots of popularity lately, but I just couldn’t resist putting it in this wanderlust inspiration list. This place definitely needs to be on your bucket list.
Baobab trees, stunning beaches, and lemurs. What else can you ask for? Madagascar should definitely be on your African bucket list of places to visit!
Heavenly Spray Waterfall, Bulgaria
Of course that Bulgaria is on that list. I would always repeat, again, and again, that Bulgaria is a wonderful country. Amazing nature, friendly people, delicious food. If you haven’t include Bulgaria on your bucket list here are 7 reasons to do it.
The Heavenly Spray Waterfall (Raiskoto Pruskalo in Bulgarian) is the highest waterfall in Bulgaria and the Balkans – 124.5 meters. The waterfall is situated in the beautiful Stara Planina, in the heart of Bulgaria.
Atlantic Road, Norway
Norway, you are incredible. Wait for me, I’m coming! (soon hopefully)
Las Coloradas aka The Pink Lagoon, Mexico
Where the pink waters meet the white sand. Don’t believe this is real? Actually, the reason for its coloring is a tiny marine microorganism that contains beta-carotene. Nothing extraordinary.
Baikal Lake, Russia
Baikal is the deepest lake in the world. It’s located in the southern part of East Siberia.
Marble Caves, Chile
Except for Peru, as I mentioned above, the whole of South America is in my dreams. You probably know about all the amazing places, like the Atacama desert and Torres del Paine in Chile. But if you haven’t heard about The Marble Caves then you can thank me by taking me there.
Grand Prismatic Spring, Yellowstone National Park, USA
I can’t be sure that this place really exists. Look at it. It’s like out of this world.
Darvaza Gas Crater, Turkmenistan
The Crater is also known as the ”door to Hell” (suits him well). It was introduced to me a couple of years ago by my brother who is dying to go there as well.
Danakil Depression, Ethiopia
Similar to the Darvaza Gas Crater, the Danakil Depression is called ”the getaway to Hell” or ”Hell on Earth”. Well, if this is Hell, then I don’t think that Hell is a bad place to be.
Am I the only one wanting to go to ”Hell”?
Lake Natron, Tanzania
There are stories about the lake, that it turns animals into stones.
Orda Cave, Russia
Giant Russia has so many secrets. The Orda Cave is another one of them.
The cave is situated underneath the Ural Mountains. Is also one of the longest and largest underwater caves in the world. Perfect wanderlust inspiration for divers, right?
Cano Cristales River, Colombia
The Cano Cristales River is also known as the river of five colors, liquid rainbow, and the river that runs away from paradise.
Sea of starts Vaadhoo, Maldives
As a total stargazing lover, I couldn’t miss adding the sea of stars to the list.
The eye of Africa, Mauritania
Someone, please take me to Africa now!
