1 Baton + 10 Countries + 150 Seconds = Around the World (RTW) Baton Twirl

Around the World (RTW) Baton Twirl

I got my baton and took three twirling lessons just before leaving on our big RTW trip. I took it along so I could practice twirling while we were gone.

It took us 131 days to travel around the world. One of my world-school projects was creating a video of the countries we visited. Watch me twirl through 10 countries in just 2.5 minutes.

My sister, Delaney, created a RTW quiz to prove that you do learn more while traveling than sitting in a classroom! I hope you enjoy my video and pass my sister’s quiz!

    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!
