My Sweet Thirty

It’s New Years Day and people round the world are racking up unachievable resolutions.  After a year of traveling, I feel ready for a more settled year, but one that is still full of new experiences.

In order to hold myself to some goals, I’m making a “My Sweet 30” list of all the things I want to do before I’m 30. Some are manageable in the U.S. (#5 Raft the Grand Canyon), some in an apartment (#24 Brew my own beer) and some require travel (#20 Tango or Salsa Dance in Argentina). I think they’re all doable but I have to get to work right away. Wish me luck and check back in to see me cross these items off in 2011 and 2012!

About sistersbailey

We are Perrin and Sarah Bailey, collectively known as “The Sisters Bailey”. The moniker was born out of a crazy weekend at the 2009 New Orleans Jazz Fest and it was the first time we had ever been referred to as one unit. We grew up in Alexandria, VA together and then separated for college - Perrin to The University of Pennsylvania and Sarah to Northwestern University – and somehow landed together in New York after graduation. It was in the midst of the hustle of Manhattan that we became friends for the first time in years. Somehow we landed jobs in the same industry - Sarah worked in marketing at HBO and Perrin managed creative digital promotions for her media agency’s main client, Disney - just three blocks from one another. One day we decided to leave our jobs, sell our belongings and travel abroad with a backpack and a collective savings of $10K. The stories of our continuing adventures and those of other fearless travelers are here to inspire you.
