Woman Gets Cancer Diagnosis, Drops Everything To See The 7 Wonders Of The World

7 countries in 13 days.

In December 2014, adventurer Megan Sullivan decided to follow through on her dream of seeing the Seven Wonders of the World. Whether it was due to her skin cancer diagnosis the month prior or her "YOLO" attitude, she finally took the plunge.

So with three hours of planning, 13 days granted off work and a man she had only been dating for two weeks, Sullivan set off 10 days later for their trip around the world. 

"I could have sat on this trip forever making excuses … waiting for the perfect time to take it, but instead while on a hike in Tahoe drinking a brown bag Coors Light with a guy I had only known for 2 weeks, I decided to go and we left 10 days later on what became an adventure of a lifetime," she wrote on her blog.

She and her partner visited Christ the Redeemer in Brazil, Chichen Itza in Mexico, The Lost City of Petra in Jordan, Machu Picchu in Peru, the Colosseum in Italy, the Taj Mahal in India and the Great Wall in China. 

Seven sights in 13 days. 

"I had the lowest expectations for the Great Wall but it was the best experience," she told Metro.

Per Metro, they slept on planes for the most part, only spending about two days in each place. But if Sullivan's photos and time-lapse video of her trip indicate anything, the constant traveling was well worth it.

Day 1: Amsterdam

Day 2: Machu Picchu

Day 4: Rome

And if you're wondering, she no longer has cancer and she and her travel companion are still together, according to a comment Sullivan made on her YouTube page.
