Traveling to 50 countries is impressive, traveling to 100 countries even more so. Now try traveling to every single country in the world. Well believe it or not, someone’s done it. Not only did they visit every single country on earth, they also were the first documented female to do so, the youngest American, AND the fastest traveler to visit all 196 countries on earth.
Cassandra De Pecol, a 27 year old from Connecticut has already visited 181 countries since July 2015. She’s only got 15 countries remaining and 40 days to go and she’s well on the course to breaking the Guinness World Record for the fastest person to travel to all Sovereign States in the world. Her amazing journey has been dubbed Expedition196 and she’s traveling as an Ambassador for Peace on behalf of the International Institute for Peace Through Tourism. While we may not be able to follow her, we can at least see her inspirational journey via Instagram photos.
