To ensure that Chris makes the most of his time, his best friend, Dillon Hill, 19, dropped out of colleague to help him complete an extensive bucket list.

Now the duo are travelling around the world to help complete Chris’ massive 127 point list.

This compilation footage has been captured from the various trips that the friends have already embarked on.

Dillon, from California, United States, said: “This has been a life changing experience for both of us on so many levels.

“We’ve been able to grow an online community of people that are truly inspired by what we are doing – we have documented our story as best friends, and now we are helping other people experience their bucket list.

“It’s truly amazing!

“We hope to be able to do this for a very long time – the biggest thing we want to do right now is lift weights with The Rock.

“This entire project as a whole is just incredible and no specific thing stands out because it all comes together to form an amazing journey.

“Life has been difficult – making the decision to leave school meant that I would lose my job and soon I will be living from my car.

“We’re trying to turn this into something big but it’s very difficult and the project requires effort 24/7.”
