Most people hope they can travel the world before they get old, but for one family in DFW, they are making sure their kid sees it all before he hits the age of three. The Frisco toddler is set to become the youngest American to travel to all seven continents, with an upcoming trip to Antarctica. In only two years of life, the child has already seen more of the world than most will in their lifetime.

Lesley Carter founded the travel blog, Bucket List Publications, more than a decade ago, but since having her son, Max, she rarely travels alone. Her two year old son has already experienced playing drums in Rwanda, racing down sand dunes in New Mexico and riding a camel in Dubai. Now, they are set to travel to Antarctica, where Max will break the record for youngest American to travel to all seven continents.

According to Dallas Morning News, Carter originally thought of the plan when she was pregnant, and at first wanted her son to become the youngest to travel to all 50 states. However, plans changed and once her son was born, Carter started bringing him along on trips around the globe. Now, he will not only be a world record holder, but will also have plenty of travel experience to brag about when he’s older.
