20 bucket list adventures to do in your twenties
As they say life is what happens when you’re busy making other plans, so here’s where I get all mum on you and say don’t let your twenties escape without seeing and exploring as much of this incredible earth as possible.
Now yes, you can probably still do the things on this list after your 30th birthday however many will be much easier to accomplish before you become committed to greater responsibilities. Besides this, something most people don’t think about is that you will likely experience cultures and cities in relation to what stage you are at in your life. Backpacking at 53-years-old isn't quite the same as it is at 23-years-old.
For example gambling in Las Vegas when you’re twenty-something might not be as fun when you’re 30-something and thinking, hmm this money could be better spent paying off my mortgage. Unless you already have a mortgage in your twenties in which case, you go Glen Coco!
Now while I still have your attention, though it’s not officially on this list, if you can get away with wearing a midriff, rock that baby while you still can.
