Meet Cassandra De Pecol,a young woman who hopes to become the fastest female to travel to all 196 countries( including Kosovo , Taiwan and Palestine) – and she’s just 27-years-old.Not only that she’s done that , but she also holds the record as the fastest person to do it breaking the previous record by half the time!
She called it Expedition 196 and it took her 18 month and 26 days. Her adventure started on July 24th 2015 and ended on February 2nd 2017. The journey cost her around $198,000 which is about £160,000 , although the cost was largely covered by sponsors. On her Facebook page she wrote: “Despite what you may think, this Expedition has not been easy”. Part of her trip was spent meeting politicians and students in order to promote tourism and travel, and to strengthen the tourism industry as a leading force for poverty reduction.
Her adventure doesn’t stop here. Soon she will spend some time in Antarctica, after that she will be teaching a course about how to find funding to pursue your very own dreams of traveling the world. SIGN ME UP!!!

“As a young woman, I’d always dreamed to travel to as many countries as possible and make our world a better place,” she wrote on her website
“It bothered me though, that I could never figure out how to ignite this inner fire and make it happen”
“I became terrified as I envisioned myself at 80 years old, having not lead the life that I wanted while working towards making someone else’s dream a reality”
“Through a great deal of work, I was able to make this dream a reality”
“Despite what you may think, this Expedition has not been easy,” she wrote on Facebook
