Bucket lists don’t have to be cliché. They’re a way to catalog living life to the fullest – a master directory where you can aspire to sleep under the stars, write a novel or compete in extreme ironing (yes, that’s a thing) all in one place. Every list should be different. But some experiences deserve a place on everyone’s.

That’s why we’ve come up with our very own: the ultimate travel bucket list. In our (nearly) 30 years of experience, we’ve picked up a thing or two that could come in handy when making yours. These are our top experiences from each of the 7 continents. Ready for some inspiration?
