I’ve been working on this and finally I’m done with my 30 before 30 lists. I’m trying out or rather planning on to do 30 things before I hit 30. I have exactly 4 years and seven months to complete the lists below:

3.  Try bungee jumping
4.  Go on a writing retreat
5.  Visit a leprosy hospital

7.  Write a handwritten letter to a long lost friend and send it through post
8.  Join a yoga class
9.  Learn photography
10. See the cherry blossom in Japan
11. Trek to the nearest mountain in Thimphu
12. Ensure my life savings (I haven’t done that yet :/)
13. Join a book club
14. Volunteer for a good cause
15. Visit a water kingdom  
16. Master the art of making pancakes
17. Watch My girlfriend is a Gumiho (a Korean drama all over again)
18. Learn to ride a bicycle
19. Host a tea party
20. Be someone’s mentor
21. Visit a red light District
22. Watch sun-set everyday exactly at the same time for a week
23. Go on a road trip
24. Go to an amusement park
25. Visit a fish spa
26. Learn to become a morning person
27. Take a train ride across India
28. Send a message in a bottle
29. Gift an infinity ring to someone special
30. Sleep under the stars on a balmy night

I plan to achieve these goals at 30. Have you had a list yet or planning to make one? Share it with me, I would love to listen to yours.

Well, February had been a very stressful month for me, though it is the shortest month of the year, I felt it was the longest.:(. Now its March and finally with the warmth in the air since its spring, I hope to have a wonderful and a blessed month and I wish the same for you.


  1. All the best with achieving 30 things before you turn 30, Rekha. An interesting list and I found some entries intriguing. :D You have more than enough time as far as I can see. :)
    Well, in my case, I can't think of anything else than completing my course first. I have an ambitious dream to write a long work (whatever you may call it). :) But I know it is a remote dream. So, fingers crossed for now.

  2. Thank you so much Langa for your good wishes, I need it hehe and I hope I will be able to complete my list :)
    I hope you fulfill your ambitious dream, good luck for it!

  3. um...havent you considered getting married before 30 :D ? m pretty sure that you will achieve all of the above except for one.. bungee jumping!!! >.< ..still then all the best of luck to you..

  4. No......i want to do the bungee jumping only and pee on my pants lol...
