My 27th birthday is in a few weeks and I’ve been meaning to write down some things that I want to accomplish in the next three years. While, I’m not one to hold myself to super strict deadlines and I realize that everything that is for me, will be. I decided to make a list of things I want to achieve. I believe that everything on the list can be attained by my 30th birthday, but if they aren’t, that’s okay too. Life is a journey. You may be thinking pandemic and all, what’s even the point of making plans? I have hope and dreams though. In no particular order, here is my 30 Things to Do By 30.
Picture this, it’s 6 am, the ticket agent is calling last call for your 7 am flight, and you’re the only one of four at the airport. This was me. It was my first girls trip and I’m wondering where are my friends?! Thoughts of us missing the flight, the possibility of travelling alone and not knowing what to do or where to go crossed my mind. At this point I was just hoping they would all arrive soon. By 6:30, three out of four of us had arrived and after seven (yes s e v e n) unsuccessful phone calls, lucky number four was awake and on her way. After, prayers, hopes, almost tears and jokes, we were all boarded and headed to Exuma. Within twenty minutes of flight, the water started to do this really, like really blue thing, like clear blue, sky blue, just beauti-blu-ful! Yes, I know that was super corny, but you get it right?
I finally did it! I took my first solo trip this month. Yes, I’ve traveled alone before, but not like this. I was either visiting a friend or going to work. This trip was different, something special and I am so happy I did. With only one real solo trip in the books, I’m definitely not a world traveler or expert. However, I learned some things about myself and the whole “solo travel” world that may help you book your first solo trip in 2019 or make plans for another one.
