Today is my 20th birthday!! The days of being a teenager have finally come to an end, as I enter into two decades! Today, as I’m surrounded with friends, family, candles, and confetti, I am looking back on those teenage years and looking back on all the lessons I’ve learned thus far in my life. Below are 20 valuable life lessons that I have learned by age 20, enjoy!

Now that I’m 20 its only natural that I’ve also officially started my countdown to turning 21!! Stick around to the end as I list out 5 must see places by the time you turn 21 featuring a few of my favorite travel blogger ladies!

You can’t have 21 without a fun night out and endless drinks, and what better place to do these thing than Vegas!! Hopefully I’ll look as glamorous as Angie from @thelovelyescapist when I visit!

 

San Francisco, CA

Thanks to Natalie from @pastelsandpassports I’ve made visiting San Francisco a priority within the next year! Make sure to check out her pastel journeys in the beautiful San Francisco.

 

Miami, FL

Within the next month I’ll be able to mark this destination off of my bucket list as I celebrate my birthday with a belated birthday travel. Hannah from @hannahrheaume makes Miami looks so beautiful from every angle. I can’t wait to see all these beautiful places she’s discovered soon!

 

Mykonos, Greece

Dominika from @theblondeflamingo celebrated her birthday in one of the most beautiful places in the world– Greece! If that isn’t birthday goals I don’t what is!!

 

Puerto Vallarta, Mexico

If your a fan of margaritas, beaches, and colorful culture then Puerto Vallarta, Mexico is were you need to be! I’ll be heading to PV in a few months and I cant wait to be relaxing on the beach with a margarita in hand.

 

Well that’s  it for today! I’m going to run now to blow out my 20 candles and open presents with the family! Thanks for reading and have a great day lovelies.

    Sounds like you’ve got some great plans for the next year. People miss out on so many of the things they want to do because they worry what other people will think. OBVIOUSLY IF IT’S MORALLY WRONG THEN THAT’S DIFFERENT, BUT NEVER BE AFRAID TO SEIZE OPPORTUNITY JUST BECAUSE someone ELSE DOESN’T AGREE WITH YOU. WHEN I FIRST JUMPED ON A PLANE AND STARTED TO TRAVEL, I WAS TOLD IT WAS A TERRIBLE IDEA AND WOULD BE A DISASTER. BUT THEN IT CHANGED MY LIFE…AND NOW THOSE SAME PEOPLE AGREE THAT IT WAS THE BEST DECISION I EVER MADE!

    Happy belated birthday! one thing I learned in my early 20s is that comparison is the thief of joy – such a great lesson 🙂 I hope you make it to Mykonos – make sure you add Santorini to the list as well if you haven’t already been!

    I love that – good for you. I agree with buying experiences and not things.

    First OF all, happy belated birthday! I love posts like these and have done a few of them myself. it’s so much fun to look back and see how far we’ve come, how we’ve changed, and what our hopes and dreams were for a significant portion of our life. I hope you make it to your travel goal destinations! I’ve been to a few of them and know you’ll have a blast!

  6. May 24, 2017 / 10:28 pm

    happy belated birthday! And yes, I agree on no.16. “Change is good and bound to happen”. Good luck on your future adventures!

    It looks like you have some great travel goals for the coming year. I totally agree that experiences mean a lot more than things. I think a lot more people would be a lot more happy if they figured that out.
