Your bucket list sucks and we don't care that you want to hike up to Machu Picchu and take a selfie in front of the Eiffel Tower. Those Instagram pictures of you leading an anonymous hand on the beach in Thailand make me literally want to crawl over broken glass to escape the uninspired conceptualisation of 'wanderlust' you have.

Nobody cares my dude.

I'm kidding though, all of those things sound awesome and you should totally do that.

So, you've got your bucket list full of regular travel ideas, that's good and all but perhaps there are some travel-related things you want to do that may surprise everyone.

Maybe they're a bit out there for most, but you want to do it with all your might. This is a list of precisely that - alternative travel bucket list ideas to get you thinking about how to enjoy some of the more unusual, unique and less common things people do and see on this blue planet.

Travel back in time

Let's start off with a bang, shall we? No, you don't need to research Einstein's theories of special and general relativity or be a widower astronaut farmer travelling through a wormhole.

Yes, you can technically travel back in time if you take the right flights at the right time. Try flying from Brisbane in Australia to Honolulu, Hawaii. With a 20-hour time difference, why not celebrate your time-travelling success and the tick on your bucket list with some island chill.

Have two New Year's Eve countdowns on the same day

Now that you have mastered time travel, it is time to use your newfound ability for the purposes of celebration.

Count down to midnight - in Brisbane and Honolulu. Pop champagne - twice. Kiss that guy or gal - twice. Brag about this memory - forever.

Get a free seat upgrade

Boarding your tubular bus with wings can make some people feel incredibly plebeian as they walk by all the empty or suit-filled seats in business class to their dusty, crying-baby filled area in economy.

It's completely normal to feel a desire to be in the First or Business classes and get a feel for what the good life feels like thousands of feet in the air. An alternative bucket list goal would thus definitely be being bumped up into the high life for free.
