Life is not all learning, aiming, and becoming. It is a lot more than this. And this is our first and foremost responsibility to comprehend the true meaning of life before it’s past the point of no return. Aside from educating yourself, staying healthy, working 9-5, and other regular activities, there are loads of things we should do to make our life the best. We all have a plenty of things on our bucket list but most of us don’t really give them importance. We never endeavor to satisfy our wants and carry on with an extremely basic life. It is the high time we should realize that we need to have fun and adventure in our life as much as seriousness and ambitions. Without adventures, life is plain and boring. Understanding life from this point of view, we, at TrendMut, have decided to list down all the crazy yet the best adventures to do before turning 30. However, if you’re already past 30, it’s no big deal. Once you’ve realized it, waste no more time, and settle out for the first adventure of your life.
The biggest adventure you can take is to live the life of your dreams.
The time after 18 and before 30 is undoubtedly the golden period of your life. It’s a period when it’s alright to commit mistakes or inadvertently humiliate yourself. All you need to do is meet new people, venture out to intriguing places, be available to new thoughts. These things will enable you to develop and turn into the best form of yourself that you can be. There’s no point of settling for an exhausting life. Your twenties is the most active time in your life. You’re full of energy and likely not tied down with too many obligations. You’re free, determined, and full of youthful energies. So, get out there and try on some of these adventures to have the time of your life. So, that when your hair will be grey, and you’ll have fewer teeth, sitting with your grandchildren, you would have something great to tell them. To make them realize that you are the coolest grandparents ever. Other than great life advice, your children, grandchildren could rely on you for fun things too. And when you’ll look back to the life in your eighties, you will know, ” You lived life, and your life didn’t live you.”
Take out a piece of paper and write these adventures down. Cross them once you’re done with them. Also, let us know if the idea of living a slighter adventurous life change your life for good or not. Here are the best adventures to do before turning 30 (or at least once in your lifetime).
Face Your Fear
I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear.
Begin with facing your fears. You can never live the life to its fullest until and unless you conquer your fears and look beyond them. The first thing that you need to do to update your life’s basic package to adventurous is to face the fears you have had in your heart all this time. It’s a height phobia, or fear of darkness, water, scissors, or even cockroach, take it out of your mind and be fearless. Go to the highest building you know, dive inside water, cut a paper or two, kill the cockroach (or at least stop fearing), no matter how bigger or little the fear it is, come over it. Once you have overcome the dread, you are ready to fly.
Make A True Friend
Even the most purposeful life is incomplete and dull without a true friend by your side. It is weird to pick a person and trust him to death, but, believe us, it is even beautiful than eerie (and I know most of you will say the same).
If you have one true friend you have more than your share.
Make a true friend; a friend you can trust on anything and everything. A friend you can share your darkest truth with without giving a second thought. A friend who will always be there for you. A friend who can listen to your useless and annoying thoughts forever without complaining. A friend who treasures you and who you can value just as much. And be that friend.
Watch Dusk And Dawn
One of the best adventures to do in your life that is not just an adventure but more of a heart relieving thing to do is to witness the beauty and calm of dusk and dawn. Take a day out of your life, go to your nearby beach, and start your day with watching the beautiful and enticing sighting of the dawn. How the sun rises, the peace, the serenity, the prepossessing chirping of birds, the cool breeze, in fact, everything, every feeling, is convincing of the greatness of this world and the beauty of nature.
Then witness the dawn, the setting of the sun. Leaving all the beauty of the day behind, the sun bidding the goodbye to the earth and promising another day, slowly ceasing the rays, and settling everything to turn into the dark.
Beleive me, the convincing beauty of the dawn and the dusk will not only make your day worthwhile, yet, will also, let you understand the true meaning of life. You will not only have a memory to remember but also the understanding of unreliability of life. The sun is setting down, promising a brighter day, knowing nothing that future will hold, be hoping the best, and so is the life. We don’t know what is going to happen to us the very next moment, but we keep doing promises, we keep hoping for better-brighter-future.
What is more pleasing than lying under the sky and watching the universe unravel through the night? This should be a must-to-do adventure of your life. To watch the beautiful stars; shining and glittering, telling the unsaid tells, letting us witness the billions of years back in the time.
One of the great things about stargazing is that it’s immediately at hand for so many people. You know, you could get into scuba diving or bird watching, but the stars are always up there.
Although you can observe the beauty of the overwhelming stars anywhere, even on the rooftop of your house. But if you want to have the best stargazing experience than there are some places popular as the best places in the world to stargaze. Pick a place and go to stargaze.

Travel Alone (Back Packing)
Sure having a partner with you while you travel is amazing but believe it or not, the feeling of self-realization and self-reliance, the sense of freedom, the learning, and the fun, you’ll have alone is uncanny. Add traveling alone on your bucket list and whenever life gives you a chance (give your youth a priority), go for it.
Do not think about the expense, loneliness, or anything else. As far as it is affordable to you, go for it. We have a list of the best yet the cheapest places to travel in 2018 as well, just in case, you want to know about these places. Keep a diary, a camera, a phone, and money enough to buy food and visit those places, and you are all ready to have the best time of your life.
Fall in Love
There is nothing as magical and wonderful as falling in love. We are not asking you to fall for someone forcefully, but, if you do, embrace it. This is a feeling that is unmatched and will give you the sense of being complete, crazy yet grounded, powerful yet powerless. The desire to make that one person the happiest of all, the wish to conquer the whole world and place it in your lover’s feet, the temptations, the fire, the passion, the agony, the anxiety, every single feeling, each and every emotion is pure and alluring.
There is only one happiness in this life, to love and be loved.
Love is a truly intense medication. When you feel it, you truly feel it. It can suspend time, influencing the entire world to appear to be still except both of you. It sustains you more than any support; you feel full within the sight of love. There’s a huge distinction amongst affection and true love. True love knows no profundity. It’s an interminable passage that scopes you up in the tornado and you’re never entirely free from it. It remains with you. It isn’t standard. It doesn’t come around often and that is how you’ll know it’s authentic and genuine.
Falling in love is the best of the best adventure to do in your life. No matter what and how the other person feels, the affection, the fondness, the tenderness, that you’ll have in your heart is above all the worldly treasures. If you find that one person, don’t resist, don’t fear, just fall for it without expecting it in return, and you’ll know how beautiful life is.
Eat Different Foods
One shouldn’t be a bore when it comes to food. Try and eat the food of different countries, with different origins, and different tastes. This will not only help you in treating your taste buds but also, in exploring them. You will learn about the variations and be respecting them. Diverse zones of the world have distinctive creative flavors and dishes that you would never even think of. Opens your eyes and your taste buds to a radical new scope of genuine flavor profiles and dishes that you would’ve otherwise been missing out on.
One might wonder how eating is an adventure, but, try it once, and you will know yourself. Don’t overeat, understand your capacity, and keep attempting the new deals, recipes, food items, and drinks. This won’t only add to your bucket list of adventures but also help you in getting the most of the nutrients your body needs.
Read A Book
A book is your best friend that is never going to leave you. Maybe you would argue that you already have read many books. But, it is for those people who never consider reading a book other than there school books. The books don’t only increase your knowledge but they also give you the wisdom you’d otherwise miss out on. They let you live different lives at once, facing different situations, the understanding of life through different perspectives.
“A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies, said Jojen. The man who never reads lives only one.”
George R.R. Martin
