50 Things to do Before You’re 50

We’ve got some big birthdays coming up in our So Just Be family over the next few years, and it got us thinking about what we should be doing to mark the occasion in style.

Do we go for big pressies, mid-life crisis purchases, big holiday (remember them?), party (if we are allowed to mingle?), or do we create a kind of mid-life bucket list?

We thought we’d have a bit of fun and trawl the internet for some inspiration … here are our 50 favourite things to do before you are 50:

  • Fall in love
  • Eat fish and chips on a pier
