Turning 25 is quite a milestone. You are no longer the teen that you were, and these are first steps towards adulthood. You’ve walked halfway the winding road of existence and reached milestone after milestone successfully. I couldn’t be prouder of you. ?You picked yourself up every time you fell down and picked others up whenever they needed your support to stand on their own two feet. You’ve been a valiant prince/princess fighting with the dragon of doom to get to yourself. What better way to arm yourself for this big step in life, than some life-changing (almost) experiences?
So if you are turning 25 this month, or in a couple of years, we suggest you cross these off the list for a great step into the big, adult world.
