They gave up everything to travel the world. Meet 'The Bucket List Family.'


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.
