The 30 before 30 Challenge; to travel to thirty different countries before the age of thirty – complete!!
I’ve always been that go-getter type of girl who sets goals and works her ass off to achieve them, after some pretty crap years at school and some hefty life lessons in my early years this idea of working towards a specific achievement has been my way of life.
And this year has been pretty epic with regards to achieving some of my biggest life goals; I landed my dream job as an E! Host and I also hit the marker on my travel aspirations and dreams.
The idea of visiting 30 countries before 30 has always been something that sounded just perfect to me! I live to travel, stepping on new ground and exploring new cultures is my oxygen and the more of the world I see the more corners I want to explore.
With that said, I thought I’d share with you all the countries that helped me reach the acclaimed tag tick 😉
I have tried to include photos for each location but seeing as social media didn’t make an appearance until my mid twenties I unfortunatkey don’t have a blog post for each location but the ones that I do are all clickable 🙂
Washington DC, New York, Baltimore, Oklahoma, Kansas, Utah, Arizona, Los Angeles, St Louis, Las Vegas, Chicago.
Rio De Janero, Buzios
The Gili Islands, Lombok, Bali
Buenos Aires, Iguazu Falls
Istanbul, Antalya, Kemer, Bodrum, Gumbet
17. Sri Lanka
Phuket, Phi Phi Don, Chiang Mai

In light of me being super excited about this achievement, I thought I’d share some pre-blog travel picturess with you from some of my previous travels 😉 Bare in mind I have changed quite a lot over the years so brace yourself for some chubby beauties!
