The internet’s most fearless bas-ass grandma Baddie Winkle is on the road.

At 89 years young, the fashion icon is traversing the globe, hitting New York, Dallas, Arizona, Toronto, Ontario, Rio di Jenero, Paris, and London on her #BadAssBucketlist in collaboration with

Her Instagram posts feature her completing ten bucket list activities across eight cities. Highlights include making cocktails on a rooftop in New York, taking a helicopter over The Grand Canyon, and visiting Niagra Falls, because age is just a number.
