Wauw… Meisje krijgt diagnose van kanker en reist in 13 dagen naar alle 7 wereldwonderen

Wauw… Meisje krijgt diagnose van kanker en reist in 13 dagen naar alle 7 wereldwonderen…

12 landen – 15 vluchten – 45.000 kilometer gereisd – 5 hotelovernachtingen – 1 in beslag genomen fotostandaard – 7 wereldwonderen – 13 dagen

Dit meisje viel van 15 meter hoogte in Yosemite, werd geraakt door een auto en gediagnosticeerd met huidkanker, allemaal in één maand. Twee weken later besloot ze de 7 wereldwonderen te bezoeken, in 13 dagen met als doel om meer in het ‘nu’ te leven.

Dag 1: Chichen Itza

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 to what is driving me to seek out these ambitious climbs?.. What am I trying to prove to myself, or better yet, to the world?

Dag 2: Machu Pichu

Like something out of a movie… A week later I was hit by a car while riding my Vespa and then diagnosed with skin cancer during a routine check-up. In three weeks time I was handed the trifecta of bad luck.

Dag 4: Christusbeeld

My friends and family only half jokingly recommended me to purchase a giant human bubble to live in. But after realizing how expensive and very inconvenient to my dating life that would be, I had this great moment of clarity: I survived.

Dag 6: Colosseum

In my lifetime, the greatest learning moments have come at a time of tragedy and loss. From loss comes radical change, for it opens up a space that is yearning for something new.

Dag 8: Petra

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.

Dag 11: Taj Mahal

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 everyday.

Dag 13: Chinese Muur

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.
