There are so many places in the world to go. So, so much to see and experience. We spend so much of our lives postponing our chances to roam soils we long to touch. So we make a list... a bucket list of destinations to go to before the end. We should just go as soon as we can and enjoy. Don't wait for "it's too late or before I die!"

Redditor u/froyoboyz wanted to hear what places everyone plans to see before the end by asking.... What's a place that someone must visit before they die?


The Trolley....

Don't do it if time is of the essence, but the Amtrak route from Denver to San Francisco is jaw-droppingly gorgeous. Like a big tour of the Rockies and Sierra Nevada. Crest_of_Tull

i've done it and it was incredible. would only do it again with a sleeper cabin (we had one and i couldn't imagine doing it without). my friend footed the whole bill because he's rich. the only caveat is you have to LOVE being on a train. cramped quarters, same food every night, nothing to do but read a book and watch the scenery. basically, my ideal vacation but it's not for everyone. dedolence

Waffled. 

A Waffle House between the hours of 1am and 4am. It's like an alternate universe where time doesn't really exist and other people are only vaguely aware of your existence. ElegantPaperclip

Grand Scale....

Grand Canyon. A picture does not properly relay its scale. You have to see it in person. RDCAIA

I went this past summer! We started our hike at 5am so it was cool for most of it but very hot by the end at like 12pm. I couldn't understand how people were just starting their hike when we were finishing because it had gotten so hot by noon!! lynbh

Rocky Road. 

The Canadian Rockies, specifically places like Banff and Jasper National Parks, are pretty incredible! Highly recommend. PM-UR-BUTT-PIC-GIRL

The MP. 

Machu Picchu. abeetzwmoots

I went last summer and it was one of the most incredible things I've ever seen. Also I guess it was winter down there. davelicious123

Plan Ahead. 

Granada, Spain. RealMartyMcFly

Make sure to buy tickets to the Alhambra weeks in advance. reluctant_millennial

Oh yeah its beautiful. My family is kinda poor but my parents saved up and we went on vacation to Spain because my cousin was there for the navy. While we were there we got to go to granada and a few other places and it was amazing. wasteofpasta728

Not a certain place. 

Not a certain place. But please just travel to another country, on an airplane if possible so that you can see the world from high up and experience a different culture, different way. nastybacon

A Long List... 

Can't miss places I've come across in my travels:

Iguazu Falls (Brazil/Argentina) Zion National Park (USA) Yosemite National Park (USA) Plitvice National Park (Croatia) Pyramids and Luxor (Egypt) The Red Sea (Egypt or Jordan) Gunung Mulu National Park (Malaysia) Raja Ampat and Komodo (Indonesia) Kyoto (Japan). tablair

All of it.

The Smithsonian. All of it. Penelepillar

I was in Washington for 3 days and I got through about half each of 3 different Smithsonian buildings. We wanted to see as much as we could. There's 17 total. toothpastenachos

Christmas is upon us. It's time to get those Christmas present lists together.

So... who has been naughty and who has been nice?

Who is getting diamonds and who is getting coal? Yuck, coal. Is that even a thing anymore? Who even started that idea?

There has to be some funnier or more "for the times" type of "you've been naughty" stocking stuffer.

I feel like the statement coal used to make is kind of last century at this point.

Apparently I'm not alone in this thinking.

I admit, I love my stuffed animals. They're the best.

Some of them have been with me for years and I have them proudly displayed in different spots around my apartment. And when I've packed them for a move, I've done so with all the tender loving care I can muster.

What is it about them that stirs up these feelings?

Believe it or not, it's quite possible to form emotional attachments to inanimate objects!

They say your 30's hits different, like one day you're young a hopeful and the next day you're just WAY too old for this.

What is the "this" you're suddenly too old for?

No idea. It's different for everyone, but make no mistake, it'll happen to you too.

Maybe it already has?

Do all mothers go to the say mom school or something? Because they seem to share the same advice or go on the same platitudes, don't they?

Here's an idea.

Maybe they're just older, have more experience, and are trying to keep us from being dumbasses in public. At least, that's what I think.

I'm definitely grateful for my mother's advice—it's saved me more than once—and it seems many out there are too. And they all seem to have heard the same things from their mothers, too.
