Travel 30 Before 30

I am currently 27 years old – the horror!  I love the concept of keeping a bucket list (regardless of the fact it’s probably impossible to do them all) and keep a running tally of crazy life goals in a spreadsheet on my computer.

Instead of posting my beast of a bucket list, I thought I’d create a travel 30 before 30!  This is a list of 30 travel related items I would like to accomplish before I turn 30.

Some are adventurous.  Some are ridiculous.  But they’re all a recipe for a good time and an even better story.

Being that I am currently in the latter half of my twenties that gives me T-minus 2.5 years to accomplish them all.

Challenge accepted.

    • Thank you! Glad you enjoyed it. That’s why I want to learn more about it – I think I’d really like it if I knew what was going on! And if perhaps they’d actually play it on American television…

  1. I’ve done a few of these things, most recently sunrise and sunset over Uluru, and if you can only do one, do the sunrise. It was AMAZING. Otherwise I feel kind of like you with kind of being “bored” of travel, but that sight brought me to tears. Do it! 🙂

    • I studied abroad in Townsville but unfortunately never make my way to the center! I’m so glad to hear the sunrise/sunset over Uluru is as amazing as I imagine it is! 😀
