The tour began at the Great Wall of China, a remarkable symbol of human engineering that stretches over 13,000 miles. Jamie's official time started counting once he left the Great Wall. From there, he proceeded to visit the magnificent Taj Mahal in India, a mausoleum that stands as a testament to eternal love and left him captivated by its grandeur.

Next, Jamie traveled to Jordan to explore the ancient city of Petra, renowned for its impressive rose-red sandstone rock facades, tombs, and temples. After his time in Petra, he boarded a flight to Rome to visit the Colosseum. The Colosseum is a historic landmark that represents the rich history of Rome and is famously associated with ancient gladiatorial combat.

From Rome, Jamie continued his journey to Brazil, where he marveled at the awe-inspiring Christ the Redeemer statue. This colossal art deco masterpiece is located on a platform that offers a breathtaking view of the surrounding area. The next destination on his list was Peru, where he visited the iconic Machu Picchu. Nestled 8,000 feet above sea level in the Andes Mountains, Machu Picchu is a remarkable archaeological site that showcases the ancient Inca civilization.

Finally, Jamie reached his last destination, Chichen Itza in Mexico. This archaeological site is known for its pyramids, temples, and other architectural wonders that reflect the rich Mayan culture and civilization.

Throughout his journey, Jamie utilized various modes of transportation, including 13 flights, 16 trains, nine buses, four boats, and even one toboggan ride. His remarkable feat not only allowed him to experience these incredible landmarks but also helped raise funds to support the Superhero Foundation in assisting families in need and providing essential medical support.
