For many people reaching their 30th birthday is a milestone, as it is the age of settling down and having a family. This is when the adventure spirit is detronated from time to time by the spirit of cuddling down with the cat and loved one on the couch. But before you put away the backpack, you should make sure you’ve ticked off the list of all the best things this world has to offer for you.
Here is the bucket list of the 30 things to do around the world before you turn 30!
1. See all the seven continents
Each country has its unique adventures and its unique culture, but you can’t say you’ve seen them all until you’ve traveled on all the seven continents. Don’t limit yourself to Europe or America: spread your 20something wings across the entire world, even Antarctica. It will be hard, but the rewards are more than worth the risks and efforts!
2. Ride a large animal – not a horse
There is nothing more amazing than visiting the jungle on the back of an elephant! On the same level of awesomeness is seeing the pyramids on the back of a camel. The connection between you and the animal is going to be amazing and you will be astonished at how gentle a giant can be, especially one which is a wild animal, deep inside.
3. Ride the bicycle across a country
This is one of the things to do around the world which doesn’t suit everyone – you have to be in top health to ride the bicycle on large distances, but if you can do it, do it! You will be exposed to the people and you will get in touch with the local culture directly, which is a completely different experience compared to the car exploring experience.
4. Explore the Everest in a hiking trip
All treks are important challenges which require a solid pair of shoes and a fit body, among other things. The experience of exploring the Everest in a hiking trip is going to bring you amazing memories which will last a lifetime. There are many treks, ranging from easy to difficult and you will reach dizzying heights – literally! But the height is not going to be the only thing to cut your breathe short, as the scenery is amazing. Don’t forget to include the Seven Summits on your mountain trekking list.
