01/01/2019 Host Unusual's Top Ten 2019 Travel Bucket List


It is the ultimate tick sheet, far superior in importance to your weekly purchase of bread, eggs and milk.

Yes, that list of once-in-a-lifetime things to see and do before you 'kick the bucket' is a hard one to summarise and keep a lid on in a world as incredibly vast as ours, but if there's one thing we've learnt here at Host Unusual it's that there are certain things that simply have to be seen to be believed! 

Witnessing the Northern Lights and other extraordinary phenomena and landscapes first-hand, pristine wilderness beaches with not a tourist in sight, getting up close and personal with rare and endemic wildlife - these are just a few suggestions to get the Bucket List wheels nicely oiled and in motion, but we can also throw a few curveballs in ourselves, with a top ten 2019 travel bucket list that's in no danger of imitation.

You can thank us later.
