Just like January 1st, Birthdays are a fresh start. They’re a blank canvas for the year ahead, and a great time to set new goals and intentions.

And, on Saturday morning, as I sat in bed sipping coffee I did just that: I thought about what I wanted the next year of my life to look like and set a few specific goals.

Because my birthday falls so close to the beginning of the year, it can be easy to parrot the resolutions I wrote about just six weeks ago but that’s not what this list is about. This list is about the fun, sometimes ridiculous, specific events and activities I would like to take part in over the next 12 months.

At 32, if I can look back and have checked off even half of this list, I’ll know it was a great year.

So, without further ado, here are the 31 things I want to see, do, eat and drink this year, to make it my best year yet!

  • Visit 31 countries (not 31 countries this year, but get my count up to 31… I currently sit at 26)
  • See the northern lights

  • Go to a major sporting event
  • ✔️Try indoor rock climbing (with helmets and harness, natch) (June 2017)
  • Push past that fear of heights (aka be mildly okay standing near the edge of something, well, within a few feet of the edge)
  • ✔️Take a relaxing beach vacation (We spent an afternoon on the beach in Croatia, counts, right?!)
  • Write five chapters of a book
  • Travel above the arctic circle
  • Visit Paris
  • See the Norwegian Fjords
  • Go parasailing
  • See a puffin in the wild

  • Oktoberfest in Germany
  • Visit London
  • Sleep in an unconventional hotel (ice, igloo, glass top, tree house, yurt, etc.)
  • Visit a microstate (Lichtenstein, Andorra, Malta)
  • Pick-up a new, non-computer related hobby (I’m intrigued by cross-stitching… to further my descent into senior citizenism)
  • Relax in a Scandinavian spa
  • Be able to do 31 push-ups in one go
  • Learn a new language and practice the ones I already know
  • ✔️Keep a plant alive (fourth times the charm, right…) (as of June 2017 the plant isn’t technically dead)
  • Tour a city on a Vespa

  • Go on a cruise (or, I will accept a long-ish ferry trip)
  • Drink a proper English tea in a tea house
  • Do one random act of kindness (at least one)
  • Go skiing or snowshoeing
  • Stop procrastinating
  • Get my picture taken at Platform 9¾ at King’s Cross Station
  • Take a cooking class
  • Experience the Sampo Icebreaker on the Arctic high seas
  • Jump more (because, as you’ll see below, I need the practice), but also jumping up, in and for joy as often as I can

Attempting to jump. I sincerely hope this was taken before lift-off, but I fear it wasn’t.

Here’s to another year of petite (and grand) adventures!
