To help entice your wanderlusting side, VIRTUOSO TRAVELER, the magazine published by luxury travel network Virtuoso®, published “29 Experiences of a Lifetime." From snorkeling in the Great Barrier Reef to escaping to a private island, and learning how to tango in Buenos Aires, the list of experiences spans the globe and gives travelers a glimpse of adventures just waiting to be experienced.

Sure, some of these trips require a good amount of time and money, but here's the good news: there's plenty of time to save, many are quite affordable, and you might even find some inspiration from some of the trips on this list to create your own.

Here's are a couple "lifetime experiences" from Virtuoso:
