My Bucket List - 30 things before I am 30

There comes a point in your life when you finally realise life is too short to sit around watching TV and not getting out there seeing the world. I recently fell in love with the quote about and it has inspired me to write a bucket list. 

I thought I'd break my bucket list into two lists. 
I'm am 21 at the moment so I've got 30 things to do before I'm 30. 21 of which I hope to complete before I'm 22 and the other I'd like to complete by the time I'm 30. 

Bold: 21 things I want to do before I am 22 (End of September 2015)
Italics: 9 things I want to do before I am 30

  2. Get a new tattoo {link}
  3. Bury the hatchet with someone

  1. I love your bucket list.
    Some of those are what I want to do :D

  2. I'd love to go glamping! And also get a mortgage in London though sadly unless there's a massive housing crash I doubt I'll ever be able to afford it

  3. Really good bucket list!
    I must say though, being 28 years old now, I had a pretty ostantatious list myself, and trust me Most of them will be pushed aside.
    There are too many big things to do in a short time.
    Good luck to get through them! :D


  4. What some amazing things - I am so close to 30 it is scary, thankfully I've done some of my bucket list but not that much perhaps I'll make it by the time I am 40 lol.

    Look forward to hopefully getting an update in September to see if you made your 21 before 22 and best of luck! Enjoy xx

  5. Wow that is one fantastic and long bucket list! Still, you have nine years to achieve it so it sounds do-able and what great things to aim for. I'd love to swim with dolphins, you lucky thing!

  6. such an awesome list! I need to make one of these! I love that you put things like "do something out of character" and "bury the hatchet with someone" - it's good to have intangible goals and growth goals not just things and losing weight you know? great post!

  7. Love your list! I want to get a tattoo too but I am a chicken!

  8. You have some really good and fun things in this list, i wish you good luck for them :)

  9. Somehow I feel, whenever I make a list I never end up doing any of those things. All the best to you. Some of these things have been on my bucket list too for ages.

    1. I swam with dolphins in Florida at Discovery Cove. It was about 10 years ago though. I'd love to do it again.
      Glamping is like camping but you have electricity and a few home comforts.
