30 things before I am 30



It was my birthday last week and I turned the lovely age of 28.  With only a couple of years of my twenties left I started to think about what I want to achieve before I turn 30.  

I guess I have done a lot of the things that are on many peoples check lists – got married, bought first house, had a baby, found a job I love, had an article published in a magazine, won a few competitions. I have also done a few crazy things in my twenties – done a fire walk, a zip slide,  dressed as a sunflower and a pumpkin in public. The things I haven’t really done involve travelling lots of places, as I’m not really a traveler and starting a family has been my financial priority.  

So I have been contemplating what things I would like to do and what things I should do before I turn 30 and here is the start of my list:


  1. Go geocaching
  2. Go on a camping trip with friends
  3. Spend a day at a spa
  4. Visit 5 new museums
  5. Knit something
  6. Sponsor a child
  7. Host a scavenger hunt
  8. Send a care package to someone
  9. Learn to juggle
  10. Start a collection
  11. Learn yoga
  12. Take on a 30 day photo challenge
  13. Visit another country that speaks a different language
  14. Have a proper exercise routine!
  15. Write an ebook
  16. Feed 500 people in my home (as part of my feeding 5000 challenge)

If you have any suggestions for things I can add to bring this up to 30 then please do share them below!!!

    sounds like a great list Kim! My husband and I are planning to go to Rome for our joint 30th celebrations rather than having a party so not sure when that will happen (may be after we are 30!)

    ooh great list!
    I am happy to assist with many of these – esp number 3!!
    I would suggest : watch a movie outdoors, play pinata, host a murder mystery dinner party, create a work of art, and explore a forest!
