My Bucket List

Fahd Elzeir

1. Mecca, Saudi Arabia

First on my bucket list is to visit Mecca, a city in western Saudi Arabia. It is the most holy city in terms of the religion of Islam as it is the birth place of the Prophet Muhammad. Being a Muslim myself, ever since I was a child I have dreamt of visiting Mecca for an endless amount of reasons. Whether its to see the beautiful art work or to just generally be in a holy atmosphere, but the main purpose of me visiting Mecca is to visit Masjid al-Haram as well as the holy Kaaba, here I will pray and take part in Haaj, a series of religious rituals which when completed, is believed that the sins which you have committed throughout your life time will be completely erased. What would I benefit from this trip? I believe I would personally leave Mecca as a changed person, I would leave Mecca with life lessons which would make a heavy impact on my life as well as an experience which I would never forget.

2. Madrid, Spain

Second on my bucket list is the capital of Spain, Madrid. The city that combines modern infrastructures with cultural and artistic heritage, as well as a legacy of centuries of exciting history. In the beautiful city of Madrid I wish to visit the finest theatres, art galleries, casinos, and most importantly attend an El Classico, a football derby between the two Spanish giants, Real Madrid vs. FC Barcelona. This would allow me to watch my favourite teams in action against each other and fulfil my dreams of watching an El Classico. I would also want to vist the Buan Retiro Park, it is one of the largest parks in the city, the park hold cultural significance to the people of Madrid and consisits of many historic monuments and land marks. There I would be able to get a good taste of the atmosphere of Madrid and enjoy myself to what they have to offer.

3. The City of Istanbul

Next on my bucket list is the city of Istanbul, the city that has it all. When looking for places to visit on my bucket list, I look for a destination which will be able to fulfil all my tourism needs, and the city of Istanbul has just about everything I look for in a travel destination. From over 2500 years of history, culture, and traditions, amazing landmarks, vibrant night life, and breathtaking views. Some of the many famous land marks I would love to visit are such as Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, Blue Mosque, Bazaar. As well as the famous land marks another reason I wish to visit Istanbul is the fact that there is no shortage of breathtaking views from the city. Several other reason Istanbul is on my bucket list is the vibrant night life, the perfect mix of eastern and western food, etc.

5. The FIFA World Cup

If you know me, you would know that the beautiful game of soccer plays a huge role in my life. I have more than just a passion for the game, soccer is a lifestyle to me and to think that every 4 years the best players from almost every nation around the world go head to head for one grand prize is brilliant. Growing up I watched the world cup, dreaming that one day I would be privileged enough to attend at least one game to get a taste of the atmosphere, see the passionate fans supporting their country, and watching the best players in the world play. This is why I hope that in the year of 2022 I will make it my goal to travel to Qatar and watch the FIFA world cup up close and live.

6. Drake Concert

And last but certainly not least, I wish to one day attend a Drake concert. Personally i'm not a big fan of the idea of going to musical events for personal reasons, but with someone as iconic as Drake, a man who came from the same place that I come from, a man who changes lives through his art work, I feel that it is a must that I see this icon preform live in person. Growing up I listened to Drake and even till this very day I listen the Drakes work, he is by far my favourite music artist and I hope that one day I will be privileged enough to watch him preform.v
