What would you do after being diagnosed with cancer or some other bad diseases? Would you rather just wait for the worst things or would you get out and explore the world? Well Megan Sullivan went for the second choice, she decided to travel the world and see the world wonders. 

According to Megan Sullivan, she was having a bad month, which started with falling off from Yosemite mountain from a height of 50 feet, then got hit by a car and all the above, quite sadly she was diagnosed with skin cancer in the same month, more than tough enough to break a person into pieces.  But, Megan was not ready to give up, she visited 12 countries, travelled 28,211 miles and visited 7 world wonders in 13 days. She hopes that her story will inspire people to live more.  Here are the pictures of her adventure.

After the worst month of my life, I started to rethink how I was living my life. I came to this amazing realization… that the only thing stopping me from having everything that I ever wanted in life was simple: me.

I would always say, “There isn’t enough time or money” but those were just excuses. What I was really afraid of was failure. I needed to stop thinking that my goals were impossible and start thinking that I have the power to decide how I am going to live my life every day.

The only regrets that I have in my life are from the missed opportunities that I never took a chance on. This year I took a chance and I will continue taking chancing to experience the greatest adventure of all: my life.



Let us hope that she recovers soon and continues to enjoy the life, also let’s hope that it will change other human’s lives too.  Wish you all the best Megan Sullivan, from roadcompass team.
