What is there to say about Lake Louise besides beautiful? Any side on the lake you’re on and no matter how far down, you will be stunned by the view. Beautiful mountains caving in on a crystal blue lake, you’ll feel so small as you stand in the middle of such a grand location. A beautiful place to put on your bucket list that is fit for any time of the year. In the winter, the area is covered in a white layer that clashes with the vibrant blue in such a unique way. In the summer, enjoy a refreshing kayaking adventure down the lake. There aren’t any pictures of this place that do it justice. It’s meant for the eyes to see in person. There are so many lodges and inns located around the lake, that getting there isn’t a hassle at all. Many weddings are also held here.

One of my personal favorite spots from my home country. This is a must for any traveling bucket list. The views are breathtaking. With so many different trails on various different mountains, you’ll never run out of different views. The mountains themselves are a beautiful rusted red and orange which adds so much flavor across the state. If you don’t have the time to go through multiple mountains, set up a hot air balloon ride. Taking off first thing in the morning, jumping in one of these balloons and taking to the sky to see the sun rise is a beautiful experience. You will see the sun come up across the mountains and you will see life breathe into your view. The small little towns neighboring Sedona are also very unique in their own way. Each taking a different theme with their restaurants and vibe, it’ll be hard to get sick of one thing while you are there. This is also home the one and only blue McDonalds for those who love their fast food no matter where they are in the world. The famous Grand Canyon is also not that far away. As one of The United States most popular spots, taking a trip over there is definitely a must.
A more romantic and aesthetically pleasing stop to add to your bucket list. This island is another getaway spot that will take you right out of your reality. Enjoy walking around the island and engage in various different wine tastings. With wineries found all over the island, you’ll get to explore while relaxing with a nice glass of wine. Taking stops in the various towns will expose you to the culture of Greece. With many churches and spots to view the ocean and neighboring islands, having beautiful pictures isn’t a question at all. Take a relaxing boat tour around the island and stay long enough to watch the beautiful sunset. The island is known for having some of the most beautiful sunsets in the world. Sitting back and watching the sun set will be worth the trip entirely.
