I’m crossing the quarter century mark on January 1st. In America, that means I have to pay for my own health insurance — the last legal milestone as an unmarried “grown up.”

My personal milestones include moving overseas (that was hard!), [formerly] running two non-profits, and starting my own business.

I’ve also had the luxury of world travel and doing more cool things at twenty-five than most people will get to do in their lifetime. I’ve had the privilege of experiences I didn’t know existed!

As you write up your New Year’s Resolutions and I look at turning a year older, consider some of my moments that pop the most.

I can’t say that these are the BEST 25 world travel experiences because I haven’t done it all. These are all activities I have personally stumbled upon and will never forget. Some were done as a blogger, some as a study abroad student, and others I financed in my gap year (aka why not all of these photos are professional).

I enthusiastically recommend my top 25 world travel experiences at 25:
