27-year-old to becomes first woman to travel every country on Earth

Published Date:

We will be impressed if someone travels around 50 countries of the world. We will be super-impressed if someone travels 100 countries of the world. But if someone travels each and every country of the world and becomes the fastest traveler to visit all 196 countries of the globe, well, that will leave us amazed.

But this is exactly what Cassie De Pecol, a 27-year-old traveler from Connecticut, did. She became the fastest person to visit every country in the world and also the first person to do so. She can really be your travel inspiration if you are craving some.

A solo-traveller, philanthropist, author, athlete, and speaker, Cassie’s journey around the globe took 18 months and 26 days and she smashed the previous record of three years and three months.

Cassie started her solo voyage in July 2015 and she finished her trip with Yemen, being the 196th and final country on her list. She travelled as an Ambassador for Peace on behalf of the International Institute for Peace Through Tourism. Her journey is called as “Expedition196”. She went to Taiwan, Kosovo and Palestine to add more to her travels and to make it to the Guinness Book of World Records. She has also been hailed as “Women Leaders Who Changed the World” in Time magazine’s Female First.

After finishing her journey around the globe and making Guinness records, Cassie went on to start a female-driven organization and named it “Her International”.

However, her journey wasn’t a cakewalk as it may sound in the stories or in articles because there were times when Cassie ran out of money. She, then returned back to USA, collected funds and resumed her travel. In many of her interviews, she has advised people and shared that “It’s really important to save 10% of every paycheque. I mean I’ve had nothing, and it’s a really terrible situation to not even be able to afford a meal when you’re hungry”.

Cassie has also written a book titled “Expedition 196” where she has talked about why, how and when she started this travel-marathon. In 2017, Cassie De Pecol fulfilled her lifelong dream of traveling to every country in the world, breaking two Guinness World Records, and gaining recognition in the National Woman’s History Museum, becoming the first woman on record to travel every country in the world.

So, now if your are looking for any trailblazer that can give you massive travel goals, add Cassie to your list already.
