A trip where you can be yourself, away from the hectic work-life balance, and enjoy eating, sleeping, and roaming around the place. In this post, we bring you the best nine life-changing trips to add to your travel bucket list, which will eclipse your dull routine, and make your days worthwhile.

A quick summary of the 9 life-changing trips on YouTube.

Nevada, USA

Reading the map to travel around

Packing up all your road trip essentials, load your car with the best roof rack accessories, and head towards Nevada for a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Nevada has so much to see and explore around.

If you are a fan of hiking and trekking, you should head to Vegas and hike toward the Hollywood sign. The trek is relatively easy for everyone and gives stunning views throughout the hike itself. Once you reach the Hollywood sign, the views are amazing and provide an excellent backdrop for pictures.

Don’t love hiking? How about a waterfall? Nevada has the most mesmerizing waterfalls in its backyard that are waiting for you to explore them. One of the most beautiful waterfalls is Hunter Creek Falls. Furthermore, if you want more of a solidarity adventure, then head on to Mary Jane Falls.

Rwanda, Africa

If your love for wildlife is endless, and you love adventures, then the African safaris are for your life-changing trips. The vast grasslands and fields of Rwanda and other parts of East Africa are a haven for wildlife. For centuries, wildlife has been flourishing here.

Rent an open jeep, and take a guided safari to witness the most magnificent animals like the African Elephant, Lion, Gorilla, Zebra, and much more. Additionally, you can take a hot balloon flight and enjoy the aerial view of the open lands.

Nusa Penida, Bali

Beautiful Nusa Penida at Bali

Bali, Indonesia, is just another place to instill mindfulness. The calm of this place is satisfying and deems you to visit the country. If you want to enjoy the serenity, don’t forget to visit the rice fields in the country’s backyard. Enjoy the Bali swing to get the adrenaline rushing when you swing over the vast rice fields.

People who love beaches can always head to Nusa Penida island. There are three beaches waiting for you on this island. If you are more of a trekker, go to the Kelingking beach, here you’ll have to descend through steep steps to reach the white sand beach. Just want to enjoy the solidarity? Head on towards the Angel’s Billabong. This is the natural pool above the beach’s ground level and is so crystal clear that you can see the natural rock formation in the pool’s bed.

Jordan Rift Valley, Jordan

Body floating at the dead sea, making it's one of the life changing trips
High saline makes your body float every time in the dead sea.

It’s not a sea, but a saltwater lake near Jordan will make your life-changing trips. Although its name is a dead sea, the black mud on its shore is good for our skin. The extremely salty lake is also a part of Israel.

We just forgot to tell you that you cannot sink in the dead sea, so if you don’t know swimming, and still want to enjoy the water, then this is the place for you. Why can’t you sink in the dead sea? Because the water of this lake is almost nine times saltier than the normal ocean water. It’s a great place to take your children because there’s no marine life in the lake because of its hyper-saline water.

When you’re in Jordan, don’t forget to try Falafel and Hummus with other traditional dishes.

Amalfi Coast, Italy

Almafi Coast, Italy is amazing for a life changing trip

How can one not add Italy to their travel bucket list? The Amalfi coast waits for you to explore it on a scooter or via a car. You can enjoy the charming views of the sea and the colorful houses built near the bay area. Also, Italy has many beaches where you can sit for hours and positively introspect on your life.

The Italians are famous for their seafood, cheese, pizza, and liquor. Indeed, from their special smelly cheese ‘Casu Marzu’ to the authentic liquor ‘Limoncello’, surely the Italian cuisine will make your trip never forgotten. Hence, don’t miss any of these while you’re in the country.

Rajasthan, India

India desert in Rajasthan is always one of the most life-changing trips for adventure people
Rajasthan will surely bring you one of the life-changing trips.

What’s it for you to do in the desert? A whole bunch of things that will thrill you, give you hours of mindfulness and authentic aftertaste in your mouth. If you want to experience the ultimate desert in India, the only place you should keep on your radar is Jaisalmer.

Book your tickets, and head on to Rajasthan, Jaisalmer to enjoy the vast Indian desert. Although the desert we are talking about is almost 30 miles away from the city, the camp you book will get you there without any hassle. Once you are in Sum, the desert village, you’ll be staying in a camp for the night. Choices vary from an authentic Indian-style tent or a Swiss cottage.

Want a more peaceful night? We’d suggest you sleep under the open sky and stargaze. You can request the resort’s manager to prepare the bedding for you in the open and take your blankets to sleep there. The silence of the place will make you significantly calm, and you can see the twinkling stars until you sleep in the lap of Mother Nature.

You are more of an adventurous person for a life-changing trip? Well, the camel and jeep safari are always there to excite things a little bit. Moreover, don’t forget to enjoy Rajasthani delicacies like Daal Bati and Gatte ka saag.

Paris Region, France

France is the home to the romantic capital of the world, Paris. Apart from Paris, the country has so much more to see and do. You can go to the countryside, explore Provence, and enjoy the scenic view of violet-colored flowers. Or, you can go on cruising on Senie.

Enjoy authentic French cuisine while you are in the country, especially the Vieux Bologne cheese! Make yourself familiar with the ancient French architecture that you’ll find around every other corner of the city.

The best way to explore French towns is via a rented bicycle. Just a note, make sure you wear a helmet while riding around the city.

Northeast Region, Iceland

Northern lights in Iceland will make one of your life changing trips
Northern lights were seen in Iceland.

In today’s up-to-the-minute world, we hardly stay awake past our bedtime. But, northern lights are something worth it to stay up late till night and witness one of the natural marvels in the world. Turquoise blue, sea green, indigo, light pink, and hues of violet are the colors that you can witness during the nighttime.

Suppose you want to go on an international trip to witness the magical aurora. In that case, Iceland’s Akuryei is the place for you. Apart from the Northern Lights, the country is full of geothermal pools, waterfalls, and lush valleys.

If you don’t want to travel internationally, then Alaska’s Fairbank is the place for you. The place is a hundred and fifty miles away from the Arctic Circle. It requires you to stay in an authentic resort to witness the mesmerizing natural phenomenon.


Resorts at Maldives are always the top choices for relaxing

Do you want to enjoy solidarity for a longer time, and that too while seeing the amazingly calm blue waters? Then, book a flight ticket to the Maldives. Yes, the Maldives is an island country, and for people who want a bit of luxury, there are ultra-luxurious resorts too.

Stay in overwater villas and bungalows with a jacuzzi, accessible bathtubs, and poaches facing the open and pollution-free sea. Enjoy a host of water sports in the bay area, from snorkeling to jet skiing, or surfing at Thulusdhoo Island.


From the Middle East to Europe to Alaska, this article briefs every possible place that you can go for more positivity.
