Turning 30 is a wonderful milestone. For some, it’s can be about giving up late night partying and painful hangovers, and for some, it can be about getting that promotion or taking that much earned vacation to an exotic destination. You find yourself craving more than just a boisterous weekend of terrible decisions and turn to solemnly thinking about your life goals and achievements. For every woman about to embark on some of the best years of her life, here is a travel bucket list to tick off before you turn 30.
Call up your besties, pack your bags, and let the wide open roads be your guide to a treasure trove full of memories. To quote Earl Nightingale, ‘All you need is the plan, the road map, and the courage to press on to your destination.’ Whether you decide to drive to Goa or embark on an international adventure, great company and a killer playlist will make this trip the most memorable.
In our fast-paced lives where we are perpetually racing from one accomplishment to the next, it’s important to slow down, take a deep breath, and spend some quality time with the family. Take time to plan and surprise them with a trip to the one place they’ve been meaning to go. It could even be recreating a trip you took with them in your childhood, and strolling down memory lane with nostalgia in your heart. Whether it’s a weekend getaway or an elaborate vacation, it’s so important to take a trip with your nearest and dearest at least once a year.
You have to admit, out of all the trips we’ve wished we could take, nothing beats the ultimate trip we’ve dreamed about going on, with our best friend. The laughter, the craziness, the uninhibited joy of travelling with the person who knows every little bit of you, is something you need to check off your list ASAP! Plan a girl’s trip with your entire squad or with your closest BFF for a once-in-a-lifetime experience, you’ll never want it to end!
“Never go on trips with anyone you do not love.” said Ernest Hemingway. What better way to seal the deal with your loved one than to take a trip together? Travel is the best way to gauge a person outside their ‘safe space’ and know how truly compatible you are through the good and the bad times. It also helps strengthen your bond and give you a unique connection like no other.
To travel alone is to explore the world outside your pond, and to come home with a whole new perspective on life. Take that one little step outside your comfort zone, and you’ll thank yourself later for pushing your limits when you were still in your 20s.
If you’re a foodie and your palate yearns to explore cuisines that you’ve always dreamt of while scrolling through your Instagram feed, plan a food trail across Europe, Asia, or a continent of your choice. Set off on a mission to check off exotic delicacies from your bucket list and the opportunity to have the world on your plate. A well-fed traveller is a happy traveller!
There is no better time to free your inhibitions and let your heart run free than your 20s. Create a wish-list for your craziest excursions and make your way through all the skydiving, mountain-climbing, rainforest-trekking, and paragliding adventures of a lifetime.
