30 Before 30: 30 Things to do Before Being 30

I guess it's time for the 30 Before 30 Bucket List!

Now that I'm 28 and only have until the 23rd, October 2023 (crazy Scorpio here) before turning 30, I figure I should get a move on and make a 30 Before 30 Bucket List.

I wrote this not only for me but also to inspire you to create your own milestone bucket list - it's fun and an exciting way to live. You also get a mad sense of accomplishment every time you tick something off your bucket list.

I feel incredibly lucky that I work on a cruise ship and am able to travel the world as a wellness coach (my 21-year-old self would be proud) so some of the travel destinations are hopefully going to be easy to tick off.

30 Things to do Before Being 30

So here it is - My 30 Before 30 Bucket List

#1 - See a Whale in the Wild

It's been my obsession for years and I have still NEVER seen a whale in the wild. Praying this year is the year.

“I think nothing happens by coincidence… No one is here by accident… Everyone who crosses our path has a message for us. Otherwise, they would have taken another path, or left earlier or later. That these people are here means that they are here.” - James Redfield

#2 - Go to Peru

The first-ever spiritual book I read was The Celestine Prophecy by James Redfield, and since then I have wanted to visit Peru and experience the energy of Machu Picchu for myself.

#3 - Learn to Speak Spanish Properly

I've tried, but clearly not hard enough. Maybe it's time to just move to Spain - I picked up Indonesian when I lived there so maybe it's the best way?!

#4 - Do a Press Handstand

Practice every day is the only way

#5 - Volunteer at an Ashram

Ideally in India, but it doesn't matter really. There are actually 3 or 4 Yoga and Meditation Ashrams in the UK you can stay at and volunteer.

#6 - Learn to Dance Salsa

#7 - Go to a Meditation Retreat

#8 - Visit Stone Henge

#9 - Go to Glastonbury Festival

#10 - See the Northern Lights

My ultimate dream for as long as I can remember. The ship I'm on is visiting Iceland this year so fingers crossed.

#11 - Skydive

#12 - Road Trip in the USA

#13 - San Francisco

#14 - Joshua Tree National Park

#15 - Yoga Retreat in Mexico

#16 - Take a Girls Trip

#17 - Explore New Zealand

#18 - Learn to Snowboard

#19 - Watch a Live Orchestra Concert

#20 - Learn How to Invest Properly

#21 - Volunteer at a Homeless Shelter

#22 - Climb a Mountain

#23 - Eat at a Michelin Star Vegan Restaurant

#24 - Paint with my Mum

#25 - Flip a House

#26 - Run a Half Marathon

#27 - Get a Proper Psychic Reading

#28 - Drink More Water

#29 - Be Grateful for Everyday

#30 - Make a Positive Difference in Someone's Life
