Iconic Trips for your Bucket List

The Telegraph has recently published their ultimate travel list featuring over 30 iconic trips around the globe, that once experienced, will definitely leave you with bragging rights for a long time to come.

From enjoying the wildlife mecca of the Galapagos Islands; Trekking to Machu Picchu; Experiencing New England in the Fall; Exploring the temples of Angkor Wat in Cambodia; Witnessing the great migration in the Serengeti; Driving Australia’s Great Ocean Road, to walking the Great Wall of China, these are just a few of the ‘once in a lifetime’ trips that are on many of our bucket-lists. Have you got round to making your own list and if so what’s on it?

As we hit our 50s, 60s and beyond, many of us are in the fortunate position to have the time and money to start ticking off some of these truly unforgettable travel experiences. This is the time in our lives when we have the opportunity to fulfil the travel dreams that we have nurtured for a long time, or perhaps to revisit places we explored in our youth, just with a little more comfort this time round.

You’ve decided you are finally going to book that trip to New Zealand you’ve always dreamed of. There’s all that breath-taking scenery to explore (yes it really is as beautiful as it looks in the photos) and a whole host of fantastic must-see places you want to include in your visit, but need some expert advice and guidance to make it happen.
