30 for 30

So this is my first ever post……feeling quite excited about it all really

Let me start off by explaining why I’ve decided to start a blog. It all began with turning 30 earlier this year. I decided to put together a list of 30 things i had never done before that i would need to complete by the time i turn 31, kind of like a bucket list but on a smaller scale. I’ve always loved an adventure and felt that this would be the perfect excuse to get out and experience the world in all its many glories.

The list is as follows:

  1. Visit 30 cities in the UK
  2. Learn how to cook a Caribbean dish
  3. Get my hair braided
  4. Read a classic novel
  5. Write a blog
  6. Visit Paris
  7. Visit the Greenwich Observatory
  8. Spend an evening at Ronnie Scott’s
  9. Visit the London Ice bar
  10. Knit a scarf
  11. Get a tribute tattoo
  12. Have dinner at the top of a skyscraper
  13. Learn to speak Spanish
  14. Visit Iceland – The country not the supermarket
  15. Run for charity
  16. Give blood
  17. Visit a haunted house
  18. Weekend in Amsterdam
  19. Give up something for 30 days
  20. See a fortune-teller
  21. Send a message in a bottle
  22. Take family (that i don’t see often) out to dinner
  23. See a West end show
  24. Have afternoon tea at the Ritz

As you will see, I have only written up to number 24. This is because i am leaving 6 spots to fill spontaneously over the year.

I hope to record all my experiences in pictures that I will share with you and once I have completed the list, I’m going to make a scrapbook to hand down to my children to inspire them to live life to the fullest.

I really hope you all enjoy my blog x x
