30 Before 30

Hi Wanderers,

I have made it a goal to visit 30 countries before I turn 30. You might think that this is an ambitious goal considering I’m turning 28 soon and have only been to 16 countries, but I believe that it can be done!

Here are the countries I’ve visited so far…

(I apologize in advance for the crappy pictures. The majority of them were taken before a time when I cared about the quality of my travel photos.)

1. Canada (Home)

This year I hope to add at least three new countries to the list. My trip to Iceland is coming up quick (in just 11 short days) and the planning has already begun for Thailand in November. Where I will go in between is a mystery and I can’t wait to see where it will be!

Here is my destination dream list that will get me to 30. Let’s be honest, this list could really go on and on…

17. Iceland

18. Thailand

19. Belgium

20. Germany

21. The Netherlands

22. Denmark

23. Sweden

24. Switzerland

25. Peru

26. Ecuador

27. Aruba

28. Morocco

29. Honduras

30. French Polynesia

Based on this list, it looks like a Euro trip is in order. It kind of feels like an easy way to make a dent in the list, don’t you think? I’m excited for the challenge of hitting this goal and I can’t wait to make it happen!

Let me know how many countries you’ve travelled to in the comments below and tell me what your favourites were. 🙂

Happy Travels,

Mel
