Sandy Hazelip and Ellie Hamby, both 81 years old, are on a mission to see all seven continents, nine Wonders of the World, and visit 18 countries in just over two and a half months, inspired by Jules Verne's "Around the World in 80 Days." They have already visited Antarctica and saw the world from a plane flying over Mount Everest on Mar. 4, 2023. Their families are supportive of their trip, and they are traveling cheaply and packing light to see as much as possible. Despite having total knee replacements, they are determined to see everything from China to Argentina and hope to inspire people of all ages to never waste away in a chair.
