Amy’s “25 Before 25” List

Amy’s “25 Before 25” List

After seeing countless bucket lists, I decided it was time for me to make my own list. So I started writing down “25 things I want to do before turning 25” and hope to achieve these before my 25th birthday on the 5th of March 2012.

Me at my 21st

My 21st birthday party - feels like so long ago!

To be able to compile a list like this brings a fantastic feeling and enhances the excitement ahead of our round-the-world trip that commences in 6 weeks time.

  2. Attend a traditional Hawaiian luau and get lei’d.
  3. Drink out of a coconut in Hawaii.
