Girl Gets Diagnosed With Cancer, Visits The Seven Wonders Of The World In 13 Days
For many of us travelling the world will always be an ambition.
It might be too out of your reach, or take too much effort to organise, but a kick up the arse would certainly push you into doing it.
Megan Sullivan got that kick, but it certainly wasn't the kick that she wanted. Her story is amazing.

In same month Megan fell 50 feet rock climbing, was hit by a car and received the devastating news that she had skin cancer.
As you would, she began questioning the meaning of life and desperately wanted to do something that'd remind her just how precious life is.
"It all started in Yosemite Valley, where I had been training for three years to climb the nose route on El Capitan. I was 2,000 feet up when I took a terrifying 50-foot fall. After a fall like that, I started to question everything... from why am I putting myself into these scary situations? What am I trying to prove to myself, or better yet, to the world?," she told BuzzFeed.
The world is an amazing place, with many fantastic places to visit. Megan decided she'd visit the most wondrous places on this planet - the new seven wonders of the world, all in less than two weeks.
With less than 10 days of planning behind her, and a lot less money than people would expect, Megan swapped the dull day-to-day life of work for 28,000 miles over 15 countries.
And the best news? She kicked cancer's arse.
Also, she has some excellent banter. Just check out her Instagram page.
