Amy’s 25 Before 25 List: A Recap

Amy’s 25 Before 25 List: A Recap

Before leaving on our big trip last year I challenged myself to achieve 25 awesome things before my 25th birthday.

Earlier in March I celebrated my 25th birthday.

So after the celebrations I reviewed my 25 Before 25 list and discovered that I achieved 12 of them. Considering 2 of them were prevented by weather and 5 others didn’t happen due to changes in our plans (we didn’t make to Mexico, Italy or outside of Paris), I’m pretty happy with my efforts.

Here are the goals that I achieved in 2011-2012.


Visit Bondi Beach in Sydney Attend a traditional Hawaiian luau
Learn how to surf and/or go stand-up paddleboarding Hand feed a giraffe
Party and get drunk in Las Vegas Swim and interact with a beluga whale at Sea World
See a Broadway Musical Visit the New York City Tiffany & Co Store
Follow my music hero Eminem and be in the front-row at one of his performances Experience the Blue Lagoon geothermal spa in Iceland
Watch the Changing the Guard ceremony at Buckingham Palace Visit the Eiffel Tower

It truly was the best year of my life.

A list definitely helps you stay on track and get excited about the future and we’re already thinking about the next list we can put together to motivate us towards future travel.

Should we create a 30 before 30 list? Or perhaps just one massive bucket list? What do you want to see?
