As person who loves writing lists I did one to calm myself down. Let me introduce you 30 trips/things I want to do before turning 30. I have nine years left so hopefully enough time to do them all. I was going to put out my Sweden travel diary today but I have been too stressed out. (University exam results can come out at any moment.) I hope you enjoy this random travel list!
1.Return to Japan
If you have read more of my blog you know I went to Japan for three months last year. I left part of my lost soul there and that’s why I should return. Just kidding. I felt like in home when in Kyoto and want to experience that again. Japan has so much more to offer and see for me.
2. Go to Caribbean cruise
3. Volunteer and help animals
I don’t know if I have mentioned this before but I have training as animal career. I wouldn’t do animal careering as job but am passionate about helping animals. As extra to that exotic country and new culture would be great.
4. Go to USA
5. Start Youtube channel
Wanna hear secret? Writing has always been my dream but making videos isn’t far behind from that. In fact I made promise for myself that if my blog ever gets thousand followers I will make this dream true. Well I did that promise when I though no one would read my writings… Now I have over 200 followers and the count is rising threateningly. (BTW welcome to all new followers!)
6. Interrail/around Europe trip
7. Road trip around Finland
Who wouldn’t like to drive around their home country?
8. Working Holiday in Australia or New Zealand
9. Long time travel with friends or family
I’m solo traveler by heart but being with friends and family is always something I hope to do as much as possible.
10. Inspire someone to travel
11. Extempore travel
Decide to go and leave without second thoughts. No planning, no time to stress, just buy the tickets and adventure.
12. Go to South Korea
13. Do guest post on someone’s blog
If someone ever finds me good enough writer to invite me to do guest blog post. It may take time but I have more than enough before 30.
14. Learn new language
German or Korean?
15. Befriend fellow traveler
And travel with them to place both of you haven’t been before
17. See pyramids
No need to do this before 30 but before this heritage disappears.
18. Backpack in Asia
19. Go to somewhere abandoned
Done this already but second time would be nice.
20. Keep blogging about your travels
I have history of starting blogs and ending them before the first year is over. This time I want to keep writing until the end of my life.
21. Travel to another country to see band
What other reason would you need to travel than to see your favorite band?
22. Live in hostels
23. Visit Star Wars film locations
The way to show of my inner nerd. I may or may not state Star Wars movies as my favorite ones. And the locations are cool even if you haven’t seen the films. So this is win-win situation for me.
24. Visit Venice
25. Do Pilgrim or long hike
26. Earn money by writing to travel
Even better if the earning is by writing my own book. However any writing (blog, freelancer, etc.) is okay. Use that money to travel.
27. Learn to dive
This is probably the one I will not get done. I am scared of deep waters but love the colors under sea. (But it’s hard to come up with 30 ideas so I can try to do this.)
28. Write a book
29. Fly in the business class
30. Find Happiness
Learn to be happy. I care too much about others’ opinions. Live my life for myself and find the way I want to spend the rest of it.
So do you have some traveling destinations you want to visit or experience before certain age? I have had this “years are running too fast” -crisis lately because the uncertain future. And so I am back to my question… What to do with my life?
Oh and I almost forget that the Sweden diary will be out at Sunday. It’s almost ready but I should pick out some photos, write about the last day and proofread it. And if you want to know how it goes with my university thing I will tell the results right away in my personal blog. Sorry about this random post and see you (hopefully?) at Sunday!
