30 things to do before you’re 30 #BucketList #TheGoodStuff

Turning 30 is a major milestone, 4 months to go & I’ll be over the hill.
For many it means that we’re no longer in the hard-partying, bad decision-making stage of our life, for better or for worse… supposedly.

So I’ve created a “before I turn 30 Bucket List” from adrenaline-pumping activities to experiences that have helped me grow.

Check it out, tick it off, add a few on on or let me know if I’ve left any off.

1. Run a half marathon (it’s okay if you have to walk a little).

2. Travel somewhere TRULY exotic — anywhere that feels like the end of the earth.

3. Buy tickets to a music festival and rage with the best of them.

  1. Love that! Thanks for the list. Since I’m going to run the half-marathon in Austria TOMORROW, I will be able to tick #1 🙂 Wish me luck. I will really try hard to fulfill the list until I’m 30. I appreciate the thoughts! 😀
