35 Before 35 – The complete list

Fiiiinally I’ve finished gathering things for my 35 Before 35 list. It does have its own page (which you can click on at the top), but for those of you who don’t bother with them tabs up there I thought I would repost the entire list. Here are the 35 things that I want to achieve before I turn 35 (in 5 years time… minus two months). Items that are crossed out (okay, one item…) have already been achieved.

  1. Wow, you have a lot to accomplish! For Christmas markets, we have a nice one here in Frankfurt or if you can go a little further, the ones in Paris are beautiful. That’ll take you up to almost completing that one!

  2. I like your list! There are some things on it that I really really want to do too. Like a ride in a hot air balloon and learn how to use a sewing machine. Good luck with everything and have fun!

  3. I love this list! Loads of things on there I’d like to do as well, sometimes when you see things written down like this it makes you think, woah! There’s sooooooo much to do and see and experience! Good luck, I’m glad I’m along for the ride! 🙂
