The interactive map of Beth’s world tour

Live the dream

Beth is a 12-year-old Australian girl with enormous curiosity and well-defined wishes, like touring the Loire Valley chateaux by bicycle. “Even though it’s Mom who will be doing the pedalling, obviously,” she says cheekily, “and I will enjoy the sunshine”. Because Beth was born with brittle bone disease (Osteogenesis Imperfecta Type III), she has been in a wheelchair since she started school.

Beth lives near Sydney with her mother Katie, an environmental educator. “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 created a bucket-list with 101 items! Discover the Loire Valley chateaux, eat paella in Spain, taste 13 new flavours of ice-cream in Italy, touch snow for the first time, visit Amsterdam with clogs on her feet, go for a rickshaw ride in India, see the baby turtles in Costa Rica… I would also like her to learn that, with confidence and courage, step by step, you can achieve your dreams”.
