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.
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.
My ’25 before 25′ List
- Visit Bondi Beach in Sydney.
- Attend a traditional Hawaiian luau and get lei’d.
- Drink out of a coconut in Hawaii.
- Learn how to surf and/or go stand-up paddleboarding.
- Drive a Smart Car.
- Hand feed a giraffe.
- Rollerblade along the boardwalk at Venice Beach, California.
- Party and get drunk in Las Vegas.
- Swim and interact with a beluga whale at Sea World Orlando.
- Take tequila shots in Mexico.
- Shoot a gun somewhere in the USA.
- Go ice-skating at the Rockefeller Center Ice Rink in New York City.
- See a Broadway Musical.
- Visit the New York City Tiffany & Co Store and hopefully add to my collection (hint, hint Kieron).
- Follow my music hero Eminem and be in the front-row at one of his performances.
- Build a snowman (and/or a snowlady!).
- Experience the Blue Lagoon geothermal spa in Iceland.

Knowing that you’re in the position to achieve everything on this list makes me feel incredibly blessed and I look forward to ticking each one off over the next 9 months. It’s a very exciting time for the two of us and I hope you’ll follow my progress in doing these 25 things before I turn 25.
