30 Things to do before you're 30 (MSN Lifestyle)

I saw this on a website and thought I'd share it.

I used to have a list of things I wanted to do before I was 30 but I've lost it somehow. At some point in the future, I'll try and compile another list of things I want to do before I'm 30.

Any suggestions? What do you want to do before you hit a certain age? I'd be very interested to know!
