Travel, in sophies mind, travelling, 30 before 30

I’ve seen these types of posts from other bloggers I follow, Charlie‘s was a big inspiration in this article. You probably already seen my productivity and goal setting article, I struggle with goals. However, I am trying to set and meet my goals this year. When I saw Charlie’s Reaching thirty countries before thirty on Twitter, it helped me realise that I need to travel more. Like a kick up the butt to try and tick off travel destinations on my travel list. So my new goal is to travel to thirty countries before I turn thirty.

I’ve always loved to travel and experience new things. My mindset since I was young was all about experiences rather than material items. I never really want anything, other than to go do things. I’m that kind of girl who loves to make memories, but for someone who loves travel, I haven’t travelled much.

At this time I have only travelled to seven different countries. Saying that, I have travelled to some countries multiple times growing up. We always went to Spain, whether that be mainland Spain, the Balearic Islands or the Canary Islands. I love the islands but I want to visit different countries now. I’m over the Spain life. That is where this article comes in. I am 22 years old at the time of writing this. Currently studying in my final year of university, so it’s the perfect time to try organise a trip. But for now I will list the countries I’ve identified to visit before I turn 30. I’ve got 8 years to visit 23 of them.

Countries I want to go to:

  1. Estonia
  2. Latvia
  3. Russia
  4. Japan
  5. Sweden
  6. Mexico
  7. Costa Rica
  8. Belize
  9. Tanzania
  10. Nicaragua
  11. US
  12. Belgium
  13. Canada
  14. Germany
  15. Slovakia
  16. Slovenia
  17. Hungary
  18. Poland
  19. Lithuania
  20. Montenegro
  21. Albania
  22. South Africa
  23. Kenya
  24. Australia
  25. New Zealand
  26. Indonesia
  27. Malaysia
  28. Thailand
  29. South Korea
  30. Iceland
  31. Norway
  32. Austria

My goal is to try visit 23 of these in 8 years. Is it possible? Is it a bit of a stretch to travel so much? Probably, but if I don’t have the goal then who knows when I will travel more. This gives me the chance to plan, save and try get to as many of these as possible.

Be sure to keep following my progress, as I will be posting when I do travel to these places.
