It took a cancer diagnosis for a young woman named Megan Sullivan to realize that life is short; thus, she embarked on a journey that took her to the 7 New Wonders of the World in just 13 days.
According to Megan, the cancer diagnosis was the last straw in what she thinks was the worst month of her life. The month started badly when she fell down 50-feet while climbing at the Yosemite National Park in Sierra Nevada, California. Then, she got hit by a car.
But the worst that she could have ever expected was when doctors told her that she has skin cancer. Knowing that she might not live to old age made her grab the opportunity to fulfill her long-time dream of visiting all the 7 new wonders of the world, a dream she had ever since the Millennium project initiated the worldwide voting for these tourist spots.
Just days after the cancer diagnosis, Megan began her 13-day journey which brought her to 12 countries with 15 flights in total. She traveled 28,211 total miles in those 2 weeks and essentially turned her worst month into the best month she could ever hope for!
