30 Things to Do in 30 Countries Before You’re 30

30 Things to Do Before You're 30

I let my 30th birthday slip by pretty quietly. It’s been one hell of a journey thus far, and turning 30 seemed like the last thing I needed to be celebrating.

Paragliding Selfie!

Deep into the hills which overlook the red-brick city of Medellin, we soared high above the sweeping green pastures and miniature hamlets of rural Colombia.

Conquering the Highest Bungee Jump in the World. Because I'm an Idiot.

You wouldn’t be the first person to call me an idiot. After all, I do have a track record of doing some pretty stupid stuff. During my junior year in college I jumped out of a second story window. One time I even got naked at a strip club (yeah, I know–it’s supposed to be […]

Naked Bungee Jumping in Queenstown, New Zealand

NAKED Bungee Jumping in Queenstown, New Zealand

Stepping onto the ledge, looking down beyond my naked body, a yellow raft eagerly awaited my descent. 43 meters below, the Kawarau River glared back at me, seemingly taunting my nerves. I wore only a pair of socks and my New Balance trainers; the towel had been removed from my waist, baring all, and a […]
