On the road for 92 weeks, one family uprooted everything and sold their belongings to travel the world.
The Gee family, AKA "The Bucket List Family" -- Garrett, Jessica, and their children Dorothy, 3, and Manilla, 1 -- are visiting places across the globe helping those they meet along the way.
Before they became "The Bucket List Family," Garrett was a mobile-app developer. He created the application 'Scan' that he then sold to Snapchat for $54 million. The Gee's invested that money, and then sold all of their belongings. They used the $45,000 they made in a mega-garage sale and set out on their journey.
They have a few goals for their travels - they listed these their website:
- Become closer as a marriage and family.
- Be good friends to the people in our lives.
- Live a life of service and compassion.
- Learn to find happiness with less.
- Become more open minded and open hearted.
- Love and respect nature and the planet.
- Create life long memories.
Since their journey began, their lives have been well documented on Instagram (@TheBucketListFamily).
So far they have visited Fiji, Germany, Scotland, Turkey, Italy, Nepal, St. Kitts, Indonesia, and Australia, just to name a few. Their original goal was just to travel through Christmas 2015, but that has turned into a much longer journey.
