30 things before I’m 30!

So after reading a few blogs, I have noticed a few blogs have a sort of goal list of things to do in a set time. So I thought I would give it a go! And achieve some goals in the process! With 5 years to do it in, at least HALF of it has got to be possible right?

5. Visit pompeii

6. Walk up Mount Vesuvius.

7. Visit Assisi and see where San Francesco lived.

8. Go skiing or snowboarding in the italian mountains

9.  Meet the pope… or at least see him in real life!

10. Go inside a castle in Italy

11. Visit Stromboli and see where my father’s family originated from
