Have you come across a situation where one moment you are indulged in eating your favorite dish and then the second instance you are thinking about the next thing you would like to eat. In my case, the food to my soul is travel. For me, you can never guess what is going on in my mind; I keep thinking about traveling to a certain place even while I am already traveling to one. Weird, isn’t it?
In my case, not really. My mind is so full of travel that sometimes I doubt if there is anything else other than it in my mind? Around this chaos of thoughts, somewhere in Northern India, upon the snowy Himalayan Mountain range, I got a thought about a place I’ve never been to, Great Britain.
I kept thinking about it for quite a few days and as soon as I got back to the network connectivity area I decided to google about Great Britain. In the end, I ended up making a list of things I would like to do whenever I travel to Great Britain sooner or later.
I am sharing my bucket list with you all, Hope this list will add adventures, taste, and memories of your travel and will make you #LoveGreatBritain the way I feel it would for me.
British Football Match:
I never loved cricket (It comes as a shock to a lot of people as I hail from India; not all of us pray cricket) but I was always fascinated with football though and why would I not be, the game is so full of energy. Those huge football grounds crowd cheering for their favorite team and player. I so want to experience this and cheer for Manchester United and the one and only Paul Pogba.
The oldest tennis tournament in the world was held at All England Club in Wimbledon, London. I am not a fan of tennis but I would not want to miss a chance to witness some of the best players of the century play in front of me (just saying, if I were you). Not to forget the fact that I am a traveller and I go to places to explore, experience and learn new things. This would indeed be a good opportunity.
I’ve never tried any form of alcohol before and I thought it will be a really good opportunity for me to try something for the first time especially when it defines the very essence of Great Britain perfectly. I have cherry-picked Chapel Down, Kent and Three Choirs Vineyard, Gloucestershire. One can go and take a tour of the farm and taste flavourful wines of his/her choice along the way.
Harry Potter (I am a definite fan):
During my childhood, I really wished to receive my “Invitation to Hogwarts”. I was so upset that I didn’t get one. Believe me, I still watch Harry Potter at least once a week and always wish to go to London at least if not Hogwarts. I would love to go through the platform number 9¾ once (who wouldn’t, right?) and a tour of Warner Bros. Studio, London.
Loch Ness Monster
I am a Jurassic buff and given the faintest chance of witnessing a prehistoric creature, I would jump at it. It is said that a monster lives in the depth of the Loch Ness lake. It has not done any damage yet and is harmless to humans. A lot of photos have been circulating the internet for a while now. Given the opportunity, I would love to experience the talked about “eerie abominable lull” around the lake.
It doesn’t sound much fascinating when you first read about it. It is when you truly understand what you are signing up for, you will not be able to hold yourself back much longer. Imagine being surrounded by splendid Scottish scenery while experiencing an adventure trip down the river. It is certainly something you need to keep on your list. Being in a boat or a raft is not a new thing for me, but this river tubing will definitely add some awe-inspiring pictures to my precious memory chest.
This adventure activity tests your sense of direction and helps you peak adrenaline real quick. In this, the adventure seeker will have to pass from a cave-maze and make his own way to the exit. The idea is to absolutely lose the worldly senses and allow oneself to connect with nature directly.
I have definitely covered a lot of places here and I wish this few points will help make your stay at Great Britain an enjoyable one. If you feel I’ve missed something, please leave it in the comments section below and if plausible, I will be sure to add it to the article. Until then, keep Wishing.
