30 before 30

As my 27th birthday fast approaches, I’ve already nearly completed my goal of visiting 30 countries before 30, so this may soon become 40 before 40!

These last few years I’ve quite rapidly ticked off new countries (the perks of living in Europe and working for an airline!). However, I’ve become quite conscious of trying to avoid the mentality of simple ‘doing’ a country and rushing around the world – travel is after all about spending time getting to know new cultures, not just getting the insta-shots.

So, in 2019, while I plan to visit some new countries, I’ll also be re-visiting some old favourites and taking the time to really enjoy the places I travel to.

Current number: 28

So, where have I visited so far?
