30 before 30

I really am a list writing maniac... the only good thing (as I can see it) to come out of turning 29 is that I have a specific title for my latest list.To be honest, I'd rather this was just a random list, but as I have one year until I am no longer in my twenties, I intend to make the most of it. I have left travel related things off this list, and it's mainly things to see, do and eat around London. So without further ado, here is my list of 30 things to accomplish before February next year.
