The world that we live in is not only beautiful but truly extraordinary. It is hard to make a travel bucket list for a specific year and not leave out so many places worth visiting. It would be amazing if we could visit all the places we’ve read about or seen in movies or television. It is possible but to most of us traveling is only possible a couple of times a year. Sometimes there is a lack of funds and sometimes it’s we’re tied down because of our jobs. Listed below are some of the best places to visit if you’re planning on traveling the world in 2015. After reading going through the list at least a couple of the destinations listed below will end up in your travel bucket list for 2015.
Don’t let the name turn you off. Machu Picchu is not only breathtakingly beautiful, it’s filled with myths and legends. It is tucked away in a picturesque mountain top in Peru. It is also called Peru’s lost city of the Incas. It was built in the 15th century for the Incan Emperor Pachacuti. The mountain mist has served as a veil, hiding the lost city behind jungles for over five centuries. Catching a glimpse of the stunning temples and palaces at sunrise is definitely a spiritual experience.
This is an ideal destination to have on your travel bucket list 2015. Water is the ultimate attraction when you visit this beautiful Island. If you’re a passionate snorkeler or always wanted to try it, then planning this trip is a must. There isn’t anywhere else in the world where you can take an underwater dip and catch a glimpse of a sea lion or run in to a marine iguana. If snorkeling isn’t your thing there is always cycling, surfing, fishing and kayaking to try.
There is no rule that only exotic places have to be added to your bucket list. Sometimes all you want to do is travel the world to find peace and serenity.

If you’re someone who is in to myths, legends and well, history then visiting Stonehenge should be on your bucket list. It’s probably doesn’t as exciting as Galapagos Island but it’s worth stopping by if you’re planning on traveling the world. The arrangement of the stones is owned by the Crown of England. Some say the stones have or used to have a magical purpose. To this date no one knows the purpose behind Stonehenge. Whatever its purpose, it was built with a sophisticated understanding of mathematics and geometry, as it is aligned with the rising and setting of the Sun.
