Beth's round-the-world Trip Bucket List

Beth’s round-the-world trip

Beth is a 12-year-old Australian girl who was born with brittle bone disease and  has been in a wheelchair since she started school. She is heading off on a round-the-world trip with her mother Katie, with enormous curiosity and well defined wishes. “I want her to have the chance to open up to the world and discover diversity. Because the world is all the richer for our differences," says Katie. She has written a bucket list with 101 items on it ! ».

An interactive map has been built on Nomador.com so Beth and Katie can be invited from home to home along the itinerary. 

Beth has started organizing her bucket list country by country, and she'll share her adventure in her blog all the way long. What are the wishes of a 12-year-old before she takes the road to discover the world? And how many of them will she be able to fulfill?
