The best bucket list travel ideas for 2020
1 Flying in a seaplane in the Maldives
Firstly, let’s talk about this amazing moment in the Maldives when we were flying in a Seaplane above coral reefs and Attols. It was sincerely one of the best travel experiences we had! We had the chance to admire the coral reefs, the Attols and the different shades of blue from above. We went from the airport to our hotel island and for 30 minutes we enjoyed the beautiful view.

2 Scuba diving in a coral reef
Diving in a coral reef is probably the best travel experience we ever had. We decided to dive for the first time in the Bahamas a few years ago and it became a real passion for us two! We fell in love with the sensation of being underwater, discovering this unknown world. And especially having the chance to admire marine animals in their natural habitat. If you love turtles, sharks, rays, dolphins or colorful fishes, you should try diving at least once in your life! Maybe you will discover a new passion who knows?

3 Sleeping in the desert of Wadi Rum, Jordan
Visiting Jordan was one of the highlights of our year. And especially exploring the desert of Wadi Rum and sleeping in a typical Bedouin tent. Sleeping in the middle of the desert in a simple tent was an authentic and unique experience. Also, we had an amazing time with Bedouins, talking about their culture, their country, the life in the desert.
4 Visiting Petra, one of the seven wonders of the world
Visiting Petra was on the top of my bucket list travel ideas for years and I was not disappointed! The treasury of Petra, which is one of the seven wonders of the world is a must to visit! This place is absolutely incredible. Walking through the Siq and discovering the treasury is a magical moment. Also, I highly advise you to go to the Petra by Night show.

6 Visiting an elephant sanctuary in Thailand
Also, visit an elephant sanctuary in Asia and particularly in Thailand is a beautiful travel experience. Unfortunately, elephants are not treated well in Asia, to entertain tourists. This is why ethical elephant sanctuaries are acting to protect these animals and offer them a better life in their natural habitat.
Make some researches before visiting an elephant sanctuary and make sure this is an ethical sanctuary. You can read our complete Thailand travel guide.
