You're turning 30 soon, officially making you an old millennial. Ageing out of your 20s may feel like the end of your youth, but these amazing places are full of surprises to give you something to look back on. Here are 30 trips to take before you turn 30.
Paddle along the Kerala backwaters in India
The easiest way to navigate the intricate maze of Kerala's waterways is by boat. It's how people get to work, school and even go shopping. Most houses have a place to park a vessel, and the relaxing current will make you feel right at home as you sail into your next 30 years.
Travel the Tequila Trail
If you're tired of wine culture, Guadalajara's Tequila Trail is for you. Far from the raucous college bars of your bygone youth, this is where the liquid gold originates. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, this culturally rich region in Mexico offers tastings and visits to delightful towns and gorgeous agave farms. It's tequila like you've never seen it before, and you've been missing out.
Cool off at Los Glaciares National Park in Argentina
There are over 200 glaciers here including Perito Moreno, which is constantly on the move. This incredible icefield makes for a cold visit, but seeing these majestic wonders of nature in person is mind-blowing.
Drive the Transfagarasan through the Carpathians
Romania's most dangerous road is a delight for car enthusiasts and lovers of scenery alike. The hairpin turns of this mountain pass will make even the most experienced driver's hair stand on end. Admire the scenery of this rugged road as you twist and turn through Romania's Fagaras mountain range. It's the second-highest road in Romania at 6,699 feet, and cycling is also possible for an even greater challenge.
Follow in the footsteps of dinosaurs in the Gobi Desert
Bayan Zag Canyon has huge deposits of dinosaur bones near the Earth's surface, and it was here that the first fossilized dinosuar eggs were found. Also, the unique culture of the Gobi Desert is unlike anywhere else. Take a camel ride through the barren landscape and stay in a ger just like Genghis Khan.
