I have exactly 2 hours left to become 30 years old... and I'm staring at the list I made one year ago, a list that contains everything I wanted to do before becoming 30.

I was perhaps too optimistic back then, however I still managed to do 7/15 things. Not bad. Specially after thinking about all the things I did this year that where not included in the list.

Anyway, let's take a look:
  1. Learn Finnish
    No way, I'm sorry.
  2. Travel to India
    Check! Here you have a summary of the trip
  3. See the Aurora Borealis
    Nop. I was too busy being in India.
  4. Go to a cooking school
    I cooked a lot this year! Does it count?
  5. Buy a longboard and skate to work everyday Check! Except for the part about skating to work everyday... what was I thinking...
  6. Get over my fear of driving
    Check! More or less

  7. Go to the Gelato University 
    Nop! I ate (and made) a lot of gelato though

  8. Participate in some volunteer program
    Check! I was in a Primate Rescue Center in Goa taking care of a baby monkey!

  9. Eat at a Michelin star restaurant 
    Nop! However, I ate extremely well this year! India, Italy, Spain, Helsinki...
  10. Visit Southern Italy
    Check! And it was so beautiful I may add it again to the list of things to do before I turn 31! Here you have some pics.

  11. Stand up on a surf board for more than 10 seconds
    Does 5 seconds count? Yeah, I think so.
  12. Finish my last painting
    Mmmm...I don't even know where I have it.
  13. Take a sommelier course
    I had amazing wines this year, but no courses :-(
  14. Travel to Japan and/or New York
    Nop! India and Italy where probably enough for one year. But this goes to the top of my next list!

  15. Ride a pink bike
    Check! A legendary Pink Jopo bike from my friend Laura.

I know I still have 2 hours left, but it might be a bit tight for a trip to Japan... so I may as well move the undone items to the list of things to do before I'm 31 (I'm working on it), pour myself a glass of wine and go and watch Totoro, which is the closest to Japan I can get right now :-)

Happy Birthday to me!
