I can’t remember exactly how this idea came about. I believe it involved a bottle of wine, an Indian restaurant on Oxford Street in Sydney and a discussion about being in our late twenties. Probably somewhere between the second glass of wine and the Chicken Tikka Masala arriving, we started talking about all of the things that we wanted to achieve by 30. What were all those things that we wanted to do before responsibilities took priority? Travel! Skydiving! Learn to scuba dive! So we decided to put together a list. 30 things we wanted to do together before turning 30… But the list is so long and we don’t have enough time! To be able to achieve this we decided to start on Nick’s 29th birthday and finish it on my 30th birthday*… we have 17 months to complete it. So here is our list!

*It’s proving quite difficult to narrow everything that we want to do down to a list of only 30. Don’t be surprised if it changes over time or if it turns into a list of 32 under 32!


“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”

– Mark Twain
