30 before 30.

I’ve been planning this list for a long time, inspired after several conversations and the adventures of many. It was time to create the 30 before 30 list – all the things I need to accomplish before I hit the ripe old age, before my wisdom fully kicks in. So now I have just under 7 years to tick everything off. Only problem is that I keep thinking up new things, so these have become my add-ons, my ‘nice to haves’ – I expect these to keep coming until the day I die. Some things are easy, some are hard, but it’s just about getting out and doing things, trying the new and different.

  1. Wow! So many! Good luck! 😉 I´m 34 and I can´t drive (at all), never been outside Europe (yet), wanted a tattoo so bad when I was 18 I´m happy I never got it, speak 4 languages, thinking about studying photography. 😉

      1. Well, I´m born in Romania, so that´s my mother tongue. At school we learned English and French, and although the latter is quite rusty, I can still pull it off. 😉 And at 20 I moved to Norway, so I learned Norwegian. 😉
