Chattanooga, Tennessee—(Wise Brother)

Two grandmas from Texas just went around the world in 80 days at AGE 80.  Their names are Sandy Hazelip and Ellie Hamby, and actually they’re 81.  They planned to do it at 80 as a nod to the Jules Verne novel, but the pandemic delayed it a year.

They’ve been best friends for decades, and started traveling together after their husbands passed away.

In less than three months, they hit 18 countries on all seven continents.  They even fit in a hot-air balloon ride in Egypt as another nod to the book.  They say they didn’t plan a vacation, they planned an “adventure.”
