25 before 25

25 before 25

#25before25 is a bucket list concept created by young travel bloggers. I don't know who actually started this but the idea is catching on in the community. In September of 2016, I decided to give it a go especially because I will be going on a 6-month trip ending right after my 25th birthday. 

  1. Lose some money in a Monaco casino
  2. Backpack through Italy
  3. Go wine tasting
  4. Take a local cooking class
  5. Sight see the Vatican
  6. Take a surfing lesson in Sri Lanka
  7. Treat myself to a 5-star hotel
  8. A complete digital detox for a whole week
  9. Sleep in the desert
  10. “All” 6 continents
  11. Sleep on a beach
  12. Stay in a tropical bungalow with no walls
  13. Take a hot air balloon ride
  14. Show up to a city with no reservations
  15. Say yes to eating strange food for a day
  16. Say yes and let someone decide what I do for a whole day
  17. Read a book a month for 6 months
  18. Try a new adrenaline-fueled activity
  19. Do a selfless act
  20. Wake up early to see a few sunrises, once a month will do.
