“People want to feel like they will surely do everything before they die that they dream of. But deep down maybe we all know it may not happen, since you can die at any minute. (…) Because life is simply too short and before you know it, you run out of time.” /Nelly Furtado, Bucket List/
At one point we all lose people who have meant everything for us and who we have loved with all our heart. And then comes the moment in our life when we all start thinking what the meaning of our life really is. Have we lived our life to the fullest? Will we be disappointed with ourselves when your time comes?
So, have you thought what would you do if you knew you were running out of time? Where would you go if you have a month or two? Who would be with? I know that none of these questions is easy, but it is completely up to you.
It was not an easy decision to make this list of places I want to visit. And still, it’s great to finally be aware of your priorities. Of course, don’t forget that it is the person who are with at these places. Here is a small part of my bucket list. Enjoy!
The Great Wall of China
The Great Wall of China is a system of defensive fortifications built of stone, tamped earth, wood, brick and other different materials. It crosses the country from the frontier with Korea and is often liken to an enormous dragon. People say that the Great Wall of China is the only thing, created by human hand, which can be seen from the moon with a naked eye. This belief exists for many years now and sounds more like an old urban legend but it is actually written in some books.

The place’s beauty is also known for being an inspiration for Tchaikovsky’s ballet “Swan Lake”
