Thirty things I want to do before I turn thirty - #30before30!

Monday, April 25, 2016

It seems like tradition these days to have a little 'to-do' list - a bucket list if you like, of things you want to achieve before you hit a milestone age. One of the classic muses for this project, is the fantastic 'The 30 Before 30 Project' which is a fantastic read, as well as Sarah over at Moon + Forest (link removed, no longer available) who put her own spin on the #30before30 idea and has created a list of places she'd like to visit.

Since today is the day I reach the age of twenty nine, it seems quite apt that I undertake the challenge and really push myself. I'll be posting an entry each time I complete one of my #30before30, and linking them below.

This list is personal to me - it might seem insignificant to some, but each and every one of my goals is something that I've always wanted to do. Sure, some are pure indulgence, but some are also huge personal fences I'd like to leap over with grace and dignity. I'm pretty sure there will be lots of frustration and tears involved too!

My #30before30:

(1) to go vegan for one week.
(2) complete the thirty days of yoga challenge (as found here).
(3) to climb a mountain.
(4) make a vlog.
(5) visit an aquarium/sea life centre.
(6) up-cycle a piece of furniture.
(7) forage for wild ingredients.
