Those who love travel and want to know as much as possible about the corners of the globe and live experiences that they will not forget even when their dementia knocks on the door, then they should put some of the following destinations on their to-do list.
There are two kinds of travel: what we do to recharge our batteries and see our loved ones again or to escape even for a moment from everyday life and what we have spent our whole lives planning, dreaming and striving for. to make them happen as soon as possible.
The second category travel was the inspiration for TripAdvisor, which published a list of the 10 dream life trips based on user votes. Are we going to see her?
Akureyri (Iceland) to see Northern Lights
The best natural… light show on the planet, it seems that one can enjoy in the northern Iceland, in the city of Akureyri, according to the votes of the users. This phenomenon is caused by the bombardment of the upper atmosphere by electrons coming from charged currents from the Sun and is observed during the winter months in the Nordic countries (Canada, Finland, Alaska, Greenland, Norway, Sweden and, of course, ), while Akureyri was in the top 10 best places in Europe. It is less than 100 km from the Arctic Circle and is the 2nd largest city in Iceland from where one can see the northern lights “dancing” in the sky.
Bora Bora (South Pacific) to sleep in a bungalow on the sea

One day there is enough to get Instagram… on fire.
Santorini to see the sunset
Among the choices of users from all over the world was Santorini with its enchanting sunset. Although for us Santorini is not a journey of a lifetime, since our access to it is easy, you can understand how lucky we are that the sunset of Oia is not an elusive dream.
Machu Picchu (Peru) to follow the path of the Incas

As you can see, the reward in the end is great and no matter how many photos you have seen, you can not imagine the reality.
Galapagos Islands (Pacific) for exploring the most beautiful islands
A few hundred kilometers off the coast of Ecuador, the Galapagos Islands are full of wildlife and nature, while in the list of Travel + Leisure 2015 they came out first in the list of the best islands in the world. Maybe there the phrase “nature rages” takes on other dimensions.
