Cassandra de Pecol is a 27 years-old from Connecticut who’s about to become the first woman to visit every country in the world!
The story of Cassandra is very impressive and inspiring. Her dream has always been to become the first woman to visit every country. How did she make her dream come true? What’s special about her story? Did she ever imagine that she’d become the first woman to visit every country on Earth? Probably not.
She always knew she wanted to do something special and meaningful with her life, but didn’t know exactly what. When she turned 25 years old, she turned her fantasy into a mission. She called this mission Expedition 196. In only two years, she has traveled throughout Europe, Africa, South America, Middle East, Asia. If you think she was rich or that she had to spend a fortune on these trips, well, that wasn’t the case. She had only $2,000 in her bank account. But how did she manage to become the first woman to visit every country in the world with this amount of money? She made it possible because she showed an amazing strength. She also reached organizations like CouchSurfing.com to get free accommodation.
Little did she know that this would prove the experience of a lifetime. She discovered so many wonderful things along the way. Not only about our world, the people and the environment, but about herself too. She found out how great she was at doing this. How would you like to go see the world as a day job? I know, me too.
Why Is Her Story Special?
The most incredible thing about her journeys is that she also cares deeply about leaving her mark on the world. She wants to let people she’s met that she was there. She wants to feel she has contributed to something. Because she was always interested in world peace and traveling, she thought it’d be a great idea to combine the two. Then she began to plan her trip with the help of the International Institute for Peace Through Tourism. She also let other sponsors know about her project of becoming the first woman to visit every country in the world and the rest is history.
The other amazing thing is that she has documented every single thing about her adventures. If you want to find out more, you can search for her on social media.
Cassie made it clear that she’s not just interesting in breaking the world record as the first woman to visit every country we know. Her plan is larger than that. She wants world peace and fights to promote kindness and to take care of the environment. That’s why she plants trees everywhere she goes.
