30 before 30

I saw this on another blog and liked the idea so thought I'd give it a go. The idea is to list 30 things that you want to do before you are 30 years old. At 23 years old this gives me seven years to accomplish things which is a fair amount of time so I've been fairly adventurous!

1. Buy a house/ flat
2. Complete a triathalon
3. Visit New York
4. Find the man of my dreams
5. Sail across the Atlantic
6. Learn Spanish well enough to live in Spain
7. Live for over 3 months in another country
8. Learn how to tango

9. Cook a roast dinner
10. Visit Canada
11. Go skiing
12. Learn how to windsurf
13. Swim with dolphins
14. Buy a designer handbag or shoes
15. Go to Glastonbury
16. Go to the Antarctic
17. Take a cookery course
18. Get my nose pierced
19. Find my signature perfume
20. Have tea at the Ritz
21. Dive the Great Barrier Reef
22. See a Whale shark in the wild
23. See a tiger in the wild
24. Do the coast to coast bike ride
25. Raise £500 for charity
26. Get tickets for Wimbledon
27. Go on a blind date

I was a bit stuck to be honest thinking of 30. Sure there are things that I want to do but I sort of feel that to make the list they really need to be special! I've also had a fairly exciting life up to this point (I've done a bungy jump, been skydiving, travelled a fair amount...) so some of the obvious ones are gone already.  I'll leave three for a while to think of some really good ones!

Talking of no. 21 there is a great program on the BBC at the moment, presented my Monty Hall (who I love) about the great barrier reef. It's on tonight but the last few are on iplayer if you need to catch up! I'm a marine biologist (if I can call myself that..? I've studied marine biology) so I love programs like this!)
