The Bucket List

Vacation Spots


Jillian McSorley, Columnist

It’s time to go on vacation and return to exploring different places now that restrictions on travel have eased up. There are unlimited options when choosing a destination, but here are the top two on my bucket list.   


Santorini, Greece 


I would love to visit Santorini, Greece which is an island in the Aegean Sea. The amazing sea views and unique architecture would make for a beautiful vacation. It’s the most famous of all the Greek islands. The Cycladic architecture consists of white painted villages that are mounted on top of the red colored cliffs. The elevated living exaggerates the views and site seeing. While being there I would hope to go on boat tours around the island, explore the volcanoes and visit the different beaches. There are art and culture museums that would be interesting to check out too. I’d like to go during the summer when the weather is warmer, but overall it would be a different experience and style of vacation. Especially since it isn’t your average place. 


The Maldives


Another vacation spot I would love to experience is the Maldives, which is a nation of islands in the Indian Ocean. I would enjoy exploring the different islands and reefs, snorkeling, and dolphin watching. I could also get the chance to stay in a private overwater bungalow with a slide, which is something I’ve always wished to stay in. There are underwater restaurants in the area which would make for an extremely interesting meal, and exciting experience. The weather is hot and this vacation would be very relaxing and enjoyable.
