Chronicles of one girl's journey to London - from conception to eventual migration.

Wednesday, May 25, 2011


Julainne, who is currently enjoying her Northern Hemisphere Experience, met a man on her trip to Ireland who challenged himself to see 50 countries before he turned 50 (you can read about this here). As I read through, I thought to myself: I want to do 30 before 30! And, lo and behold, as I got to the end of Julainne's blog post, she had said the same to herself! So now we both have this common goal - and a very exciting one at that!

Eagle-eyed readers will notice I've added a little list to my blog on the right. I'm at 12 countries already - mostly due to my parents being nomads of some sort. I hope to be at 16 by the end of the year. I plan to be in Wales in July, Scotland in August, Germany in October and the Philippines in December.

And, yes, Wales and Scotland count as separate countries. Wikipedia said so here and here respectively and we know Wikipedia is never wrong . . . right?


  1. Weeeee it's so exciting! I'll help support you in your 30 before 30 journey! Maybe we can do another trip away together... perhaps for my birthday? I like your list idea I may have to steal it.....

  2. yes yes steal away!! the weekend of your bday i have a batman live show at the 02 saturday afternoon so i cant go away that weekend!
