There is something spectacular about achieving a goal. The sense of accomplishment that comes with meeting a long-sought target is one of life’s great endorphin rushes. Since I started this travel blog, I have set several travel goals for myself, and today I have a new one: the 90 under 30 Travel Project.
The 90 under 30 Travel Project is my goal to visit 90 countries in my lifetime before my 30th birthday.
I am currently at 72 countries. I have eight months to visit 18 more.
I will travel from London to seven new counties in September on my upcoming trip to the Balkans. I will pick off two more in October and November with trips to Liechtenstein and Andorra. That leaves nine more to plan and book before April, when I will wave good-bye to my 20′s and celebrate the dawn of a new decade of travel adventures.
My current plan is to visit Brazil in October, Laos and Cambodia in January, Belize, Guatemala, El Salvador, and Honduras in February, Israel in early April, and Lebanon over the week of my 30th birthday.
I am open to suggestions and itinerary changes, so if you have recommendations for unmissable countries, please let me know!
Over the next eight months I will offer regular updates on the 90 under 30 Travel Project. I hope to achieve the goal, I invite you to follow the journey and share in the adventures!
