Hi everyone! Today, as I publish this, is my 25th birthday. I can’t believe this day has come around, I honestly feel like I’m still 20 years old. I have accomplished a few things in my life so far which I am so grateful for, but today I wanted to share a list of 30 things I would love to cross off my bucket list before the big 30 arrives!

And there you have it! 30 things I want to do before I turn 30. What’s on your list?
Until next time
Great post Elle, we were watching a show the other night about New York and that is one we want to do when travel opens up again! Hope you get to see/do everything over the next few years!
These are really great bucket list ideas. I would to visit New York as well. Some of my goals before I hit 40 since I’m 29 now are to visit Paris for a month, go to Japan, learn to horseback ride and archery, go turtle watching and learn conversational Spanish, French & Japanese.
These are great goals – hope you’re able to achieve them!

A great list here. I have a similar 40 things to do before I’m 40 and have quite a few of these on this!! I’m worried I only have 16months to go and covid has ruined the chance to do a few of them 😕 I hope you manage to achiever yours. If you are anywhere close to Doncaster (or fancy a trip) The Yorkshire Wildlife Park has Polar Bears and it is amazing. An easy way to cross one off!!
This is such a great list! I’ve done a bike ride around Hyde Park before and it’s definitely worth it.
Do you have a particular country (or countries) in mind for where you’d love to spend NYE? 🙂
Love the list! It’s so nice to have a list like this, I think it pushes you to do fun things more often!
It is my 29th birthday in 3 days – I might have to make a list for my 29th year of life.
I just wanted to hit 30 countries before I turned 30 and I did that 🙂
Happy birthday!! Hope you have a lovely day 🙂 This is such a great list. I’ve done a few of them! I’ve been to the Hard Rock Cafe, adopted an animal, done the swan boat thing in Hyde Park and the Jack the Ripper walk. That was really cool and so interesting and eerie!
There are some great things on this list! I’m already in my 30s, so I’m working on the list of things that I want to do before turning 40. Some of the things that I’ve put on that list include:
– build a van conversion with my husband
– take a month-long camping trip with my husband and the dogs
– visit Disney during their Halloween celebrations
– learn a new language
Making a list like this is a great way to motivate ourselves to try something new and make these things happen!
happy birthday to you! there are so many great wishes on this list, the northern lights are definitely near the top of mine!
Happy belated birthday! I hope you can achieve all your goals!
I made a 30 things post too after I turned 27 & I would also like to get a pet & travel!
Happy Belated birthday, your lists sound amazing of things to do before your each 30, hopefully, you will do some of them 🙂

What a great list!! I’ve been to New York several times and absolutely would recommend!! 🥰 Central Park is really beautiful!
Happy birthday! Hope you had a great day! There are so many lovely ideas on this list, and I hope you get to do all of them. I’m turning 25 myself in a few weeks and I’ve been working on a list very much like this.
This is such a great list! I turned 30 a few years ago and I still have some of these on my list, like go to New York. I had no idea about the Jack the Ripper tour, I’d love to do that! Another thing on my list 🤣🤣
Good luck, hope you had a great birthday xx
I love lists like this! I hope you’re able to achieve all of your goals xx
So many great ideas!
I’ve done a few so I can give some insight!
Bon Jovi is amazing!
Also I have two cats and they will run your life but in a great way!
What a creative list. One that I will be making note of! I turn 29 tomorrow and I will have a year to complete a whole lot of things! Thanks for sharing this.
I love this list – you’ve chosen some great goals. I’d also love to do quite a few of these like adopt a cat & celebrate NYE in another country. Here’s hoping we both get to do these!
Great list. You have lots of time to get through it too! Hope you get to achieve them all and more!
I love this post! You’ve set so many fab goals, good luck with them all! Xx
These are great! I can really recommend the Jack the Ripper walking tour 😁 I might make a list like this as well.
Love this! Hope you get to do it all and so much more… Start with sushi, buy the ingredients and then whack on a YouTube tutorial following the steps.
There’s a hot air balloon festival in Bristol every year, too. 😁
Happy birthday! I turn 25 this year too so I’ll definitely be making a similar list. I hope you’re able to achieve everything xx
Great list, I’d love to do a few of these myself! Thanks for sharing x

I absolutely love bucket lists! You have some great point on your list! The campervan idea to Scotland sounds absolutely amazing and you’ll hopefully manage soon! Hope you’ll get to achieve all of them x
Seems like a fun list! Its always interesting to see what people really want to do, some of them I’m like yeah that would be fun! And others its a hard pass, hello fear of heights lol
This is such a great list. I too would love to see the Northern Lights. Also, aqua zorbing sounds like so much fun!
I love this list of all the things you want to do before your 30, I’d love to go and see the Northern Lights too, it must be an incredible experience x

Happy Birthday Ellie! There are so many great adventures on this list! I would also love to see the Northern Lights, go to a drive in cinema and I’ve been thinking of doing first aid training for a while as it’s such a livesaving skill to have! xx
Loved reading your goals! I too have visiting New York on my list of things to do in this lifetime !
This is such a great, varied list of goals to reach before you turn 30! I’d love to be able to make sushi as well x
Ellie this looks like quite the list. Having visited NYC 100’s of times I see why it is #1 on your list. Truly, no place on earth is anything like The City.
Sounds like an amazing list of things to do before 30. I cant wait to see what you achieve from this list when you turn 30. Thank you for sharing.
