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

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

You know, I've seen countless "no texting while driving campaigns" and I agree with the premise. I think it is dangerous not to have your eyes on the road. That's how accidents happen. With that said, don't car manufacturers think it's counterintuitive to include touchscreens instead of knobs or dials in new cars these days? You have to take your eyes off the road to adjust anything. I think it's hazardous, especially if you happen to be driving in inclement weather.

After Redditor TheTenthDimension asked the online community, "What's your best example of 'Whoever designed this must not use their own product'?" people shared some suggestions.

If only all the things we excelled at were also the very things we loved to do most. But sadly, that is not the way it goes.

Instead, some horrible force of the universe made you way better at, say, sewing the holes of pants than playing guitar. The universe can be a spiteful, fickle jerk.

In a perfect world, family has your back harder than anyone else.

In the real world, it can sometimes be your family that cuts deeper than anyone else. Intentional or not, the people closest to you have the ability to seriously super suck.

No, you're not the only one who has dealt with a mom who just, for the life of themselves, can't NOT be critical. Or a dad who just always seemed chronically underwhelmed by you.

Society is an odd conundrum when you attempt to wrap your head around it. This phenomena typically occurs whenever you witness a new trend or share experience and everyone seems to go along with it. Only much later, when you think about it with a bit of critical thinking, do you notice something might be off.

Going against society can be strained, difficult, like pulling back a sticker that's been on way too long, however sometimes it's necessary to get rid of what we probably shouldn't be so welcoming of.
