Here Are 20 Places That Should Be On Your Bucket List

Of all the stories in the world, we find the ones worth discovering in places unexplored, and valleys untouched. And while the end of your relationship may be the closure of one chapter in your life, there are a plethora of new chapters, hell, entire novels waiting for you on the other end! Sure, being in love is a beautiful feeling, and we’ve all been taught that we’ll only get our happily ever-after after we find our prince-charming. But it’s time for us to start believing that being single is a magnificent thing as well, and that we don’t need someone else to make us feel complete, we can do it on our own.

Planet Earth is a glorious place. It has so many wonders to offer, both natural and manmade, that the very thought of spending the rest of your life without exploring the rest of it – is utterly ridiculous, don’t you think? The exquisiteness of being on your own is so unappreciated. And the only way to discover this for yourself is to challenge yourself to the unknown, and do something that you know you’ve always wanted to do, but haven’t done before.

So take that leap of faith, grab your travel bag, and start to think of the world as your oyster. Because guess what? It really is! Here are some of the best 20 places to go solo.

Ah! Barcelona is a single’s paradise. This beautiful city is a perfect amalgamation of everything that is good about Mediterranean cities – unbeatable sunshine, laid back atmosphere, and of course a delectable gastronomical scene. Barcelona may be known for its gothic architecture that spans 2000-plus years, but it has so much more to offer. Spend a day at the Barcelona Zoo (locally known as Parque Zoológico de Barcelona) with your family. Covering a space of 13-hectares, the zoo houses around 7500 animals, from lions to gorillas to elephants to geckos. Plus, there are picnic areas dotted all over the place as well as a superb adventure playground, pony rides, petting zoo and a mini-train ride!

Go on the top of Montjuic Mountain, which is actually more of a hill, but it dominates Barcelona’s skyline nevertheless. The hill has a plethora of gardens, parks, Olympic installations and museums that hold a special place in the hearts of many Barcelonans and visitors alike.

The eastern slope of Montjuic is a steep cliff that overlooks the port below, and is one of the best places to get a panoramic view of the city. Montjuic is historic, and should definitely be on your Barcelona bucket-list! And if that doesn’t satisfy you, the sun-drenched beaches of this Catalan capital and its turquoise waters will surely beckon you into falling in love with Barcelona.
