30 things before 30.

by racheliliadis

This morning I was reading old journals and came across this list of 30 things I would like to do before I’m 30 years old. The group I traveled with created these lists while we were studying abroad, and I felt like sharing it. Plus, it’s fun!

Some of these adventures might be beyond my grasp, but I never want to limit my dreams. If you don’t believe it can happen, it never will.
