For me and many others, 30 is approaching faster than we can handle.

At the age of 27, I have done a lot. Probably more than most, but when you are approaching a milestone like that, you can’t help but think about what you still want to accomplish. Things that make you wiser, things that make you deeper, things that make you grow as a person and some things that are just flat out fun.

Here’s my list of 30 things you need to do before you turn 30.

1. Travel somewhere overseas.

2. Go to a 3-day country festival.

3. Have a really expensive dinner.

4. Go on a service trip.
