My name is Philip Olayvar. I’m currently 28 years old and turning 30 very soon! I’m both excited and nervous about reaching the age of 30. Most people say, you REALLY need to have your life and priorities sorted out by age 30. This is a big deal for me for some ambiguous reason.

It would be my absolute pleasure if you can join me on my journey to thirty! I'll be writing about my travel adventures, brave challenges and other crazy things I NEED to do before I turn thirty. I'm eager to know your thoughts. Please post them in the comments below or sent me a message at
