When 91-year-old Norma Bauerschmidt was diagnosed with terminal cancer, she chose the trip of a lifetime over treatment.

Six months after embarking on an amazing road trip and building up a viral following, Norma has died.

Deciding that a good life was better than a long life after already totting up nine decades.

Norma, from Michigan, told doctors: ‘I’m hitting the road.’

Norma’s husband Leo had just died from the same disease and she felt she couldn’t live at home without him.
