Recently, we covered a story about a dude who managed to visit every country in the world before he turned 40 years old. It’s an amazing accomplishment and to think that he basically got his job on board with his decision and he chronicled that amazing journey is a feat in its own.
But there’s a saying and it goes a little something like “girls do it better,” but what are they talking about, exactly?
It could be visiting every country in the world in record time.
Because Cassandra De Pecol has almost visited every single country in the world and she’s only 27 years old. WHAT.
She’s on track to become the first female, American, youngest, and fastest traveler on the planet to visit all the world’s 196 countries.
She’s already hit up 181 countries and has 40 days to finish out the remaining 15, which the 27-year-old from Connecticut can easily accomplish.
She’s calling her trip around the globe Expedition 196. You might be wondering how in the hell she’s able to travel the world and hold down a job.
She’s employed as an ambassador for peace with the International Institute for Peace Through Tourism.
Her whole life centers around traveling and tourism, along with taking gorgeous photos and posting them to her Instagram account.
She also leverages her nearly 68,000 thousand followers for free stays in hotels all over the world.
She snaps photos of the exotic venues she stays in and that covers the cost of her rooms. Smart move.
She’s also a fitness enthusiast, triathlete, and entrepreneur.
Her trip has cost her almost $ 200,000 so far, but she’s gotten almost all of it covered by sponsors.
She’s been able to do some amazing things…like cuddle lion cubs.
Go skiing in Colorado – without a coat!
Chilling on a beach in Kiribati.
And she visited Mostar bridge in Bosnia and Herzegovina.
The camera set-up she uses to snap her amazing photos from around the world is small yet powerful.
And of course, she has to bring her world map.
