I had trouble with this topic because I don't feel that I'm qualified to give advice. Everyone's experience is different and let's face it, we can be told about something but we always think that we'll be different. A preview of some of the topics considered:
It's true - you will look back at your body in your twenties or thirties with envy...even if you didn't like it at the time.
One day, you won't be able to shake off an illness - and it will suck
Getting older is still better than the alternative
That got too depressing, so I considered:
cool travel tidbits
Galapagos - I didn't expect the barren lava of the islands or the amount of wildlife in the islands.
Antarctica - penguins really stink. If you are going to go kayaking, you will need less clothes than you think because those dry suits are like personal saunas
Running with the bulls - the bulls want to run in the opposite direction but there are people herding them towards the runners. It is a full week of festival goodness so no banks are open. Plus, the running is a test of manhood so women really shouldn't run (I'm sorry if I offended everyone when I was there)
Inca trail - take an extra day to acclimatize to . . . More
