1 Baton + 10 Countries + 150 Seconds = Riley’s World Twirl

It took us 131 days to travel around the world. Watch Riley twirl through 10 countries in just 2.5 minutes.

    You’re so smart and talented. I wish I had done something like that when I went half way around the world. I’m very proud of you.

    I love this! my two faves: the first Italy one (the scarf story came to mind) and the Sydney AU part where you can catch the little “ouch” at the beginning! love you guys!


    1. Yes, I love the little “ouchie” part too. Riley really ought to create a video of the outtakes. Now that would be hilarious–like when a rogue baton toss almost took out an entire family at the Batu Caves in Kuala Lumpur!


  3. Absolutely Fantastic. You would make a great film editor in Hollywood. I have really enjoyed MY around the world tour – from my recliner… Love, Papaw


  4. This is beyond cool. Welcome home!!!!
