30 after 30

I have done a lot of cool stuff - really.  I traveled to Europe (by myself), staying in hostels and riding the train with my Europass.  I've met Harry Connick, Jr., and I've seen Davy Jones and Tom Jones in concert (not at the same time).  I got married in Vegas, and I was in a music video. (Okay, so it was for a Christian swing band, but it counts!)  I've accomplished a lot too - I was valedictorian of my high school class, got my Bachelor's degree in three years, have my Master's degree, and am a Nationally Board Certified teacher. (Okay, so I'm also a nerd).

Anyway, I have been in my thirties for a few years now, and I thought I'd compile a list of 30 things I want to do after 30 years of age.  And here it is:  
  1. Float in a hot-air balloon
  2. Drive Route 66
