10 Of The Weirdest Places To Put On Your Bucket List
Ever since the movie The Bucket List came out in 2007, the concept of things one wants to achieve before they die has become a huge part of the Western Culture. For many it features tasks such as ‘get married’ or ‘sleep under the stars’ while others opt for travelling and put down the major sites like the Statue of Liberty, the Eiffel Tower, or the Pyramids. But there’s always that portion of people who are a bit quirky and want to be a little different, or in the case of this list – a lot different. We’ve picked the top ten most terrifying, isolated or just plain weird places to put on your bucket list.
Have you ever dreamed of going from India to Bangladesh to India to Bangladesh to India? Here’s the good news, there’s a place called the Enclaves of the Dahala Khagrabari of the Cooch Behar District, and they are exactly what you need! Enclaves are small districts of a country surrounded by another country and are not so uncommon, most of them being quite small and unremarkable. The Cooch Behar district of India and Bangladesh has 106 Indian Enclaves and 92 Bangladeshi enclaves and each of those was created in such a way so it would ensure that Hindu villages remain a part of India while Muslim villages stay a part of Bangladesh. So if you’re missing some excitement and want to travel from one country to the next and vice versa the whole day, this might be the place for you.
Ilha da Queimada Grande
If you’re a snake lover, then Ilha da Queimada Grande is the right place for you. Commonly known as the “Snake Island”, it is situated approximately 20 miles off the coast of Brazil. It is also filled with snakes called Golden Lanceheads that are so venomous it takes them seconds to kill you. The snakes’ venom makes the prey start to digest before the snake actually swallows it. According to the locals, there are up to five snakes per square meter, or about ten square feet. If you do visit, maybe it should be the last point on your bucket list, as you probably won’t make it out of there alive.
