Find Yourself on the Journey
Even from the air, the Ogasawara Archipelago is out of this world, but you will probably have to take my word for that as very few people outside of the Japanese security forces ever fly near enough to them to see them from above. There is only one airport in the entire archipelago and it is both off limits and far removed from the inhabited islands where tourists visit. You may have heard of Iwo Jima, but despite the immense historical value and natural beauty of this small island, you should not have it on your bucket list unless the Japanese government ever makes it accessible to civilians. I have been there but not as a tourist (See story at the bottom of this blog).

Tune in for More from our Bucket Lists Series
The Bucket List series is meant, in part, to inspire you to visit these places during your lifetime.

Bear and I will be writing separate bucket list blogs and travel guides for you, and you can learn more about bucket list creation, travel tips, and history on this website and our social media, so, please follow us and, as always take the time to “Find Yourself on the Journey.”
Why Angkor Wat Should Be on Your Bucket List
Far more than just one of the most amazing archaeological parks in the World, Siem Reap is one of a few places in Southeast Asia where you can be in the fast-paced city enjoying street food one minute and in the rural farmlands the next. Angkor Wat is affordable, appealing to most types of travelers, and unique culturally and in terms of biodiversity. The food and massages are amazing and inexpensive, the wetlands and ruins host a cornucopia of tropical plants and wildlife, and no matter where you find yourself, the locals are friendly.
