30 Things I Want To Achieve Before I Turn 30

Okay full disclosure, I have a few years to go before I turn 30 but if lockdown has taught me anything, it’s that we don’t know what’s around the corner and life can be very short! So even though a lot of these things on my list can’t be done until we come out of lockdown and things have settled down a bit, it allows me to be optimistic and excited for the future.

I’ve tried to refrain from putting too many travel specific ones on this list because a) I already have a Travel Bucket List blog post and b) I have no idea whether travelling in the near future will even be possible!

  1. Go skinny-dipping.
  2. Live in a new city.
  3. Learn how to surf.
  4. Take a cooking class.
  5. Go rock-climbing.
  6. Do regular charity work.
  7. Get a dog.
  8. Join a book club.
  9. Run 5k in under 30 mins.
  10. Go skydiving.
  11. Give blood.
  12. Throw a dinner party.
  13. Go on a helicopter ride.
  14. Visit a vineyard and do a wine tour. Bonus points if you crush the grapes yourself.
  15. Go go-karting (and win).
  16. Go on a yoga retreat.
  17. Write a recipe book for myself.
  18. Make a meal from vegetables I’ve grown myself.
  19. Go glamping.
  20. Become vegetarian/vegan.
  21. Go scuba-diving.
  22. See a drag show.
  23. Try a cuisine I’ve never tried before.
  24. Go white water rafting.
  25. Visit a rage room.
  26. Read 100 books in one year.
  27. Join a local sports club.
  28. Knit a jumper.
  29. Reach 10k followers on Instagram and Twitter.
  30. Go horse-riding on the beach.

Have you achieved any of the items on my list?
