50 NEW experiences before I’m 50

posted in: Uncategorized | 0

Last year I completed 52 experiences  in 52 weeks. Which let me tell you was quite the challenge. I am rapidly approaching my 50th birthday in October 2018. To commemorate this milestone I will be having a birthday celebration with friends and family in Thailand. Prior to the party I have selected 50 NEW experiences I would like to have before I turn 50. 

Yeah thats right 50 new challenges for me to complete in 10 months. This is going to be one hectic year. The challenges/experiences are a mix of simple and complex activities but all are ones I have never before tried. I am really looking forward to enjoying these moments.

You may notice a lot of them overlap with my current Life List, these are the ones I think I can achieve in the time frame.
