This Cat Is Lucky Enough To Travel The World… But Does It Make Him Smile?

Originally from South Korea, Gandalf the cat now lives together with his two humans in California. Their most recent adventure will reset your travel goals; they spent three months embarking on the ultimate road trip, stopping in a total of 9 US states!

The "Gandalf family" has soaked in the wonders of Yosemite, the Grand Canyon, and Austin, Texas, among a few other popular sites. In terms of new experiences, the feline has explored trails, tasted snowflakes, and sat by a campfire -- which may not be uncommon for dogs, but are altogether rare for cats.

According to an announcement made on Instagram (@ganddygram), 2016 may be a little slower in terms of travel. The family is facing a long immigration process, but reassured that the adventures will continue once the papers are in order!
