This 27-Year-Old Woman Has Visited Every Country In The World

How many have you been to?

If you're on the hunt for new life inspiration, look no further than 27-year-old Cassie De Pecol: the first woman to visit every single country in the world.

While most peoples' bucket lists undoubtedly contain a few (read: a lot of) traveling ambitions, Connecticut's Cassie took things to a new level, becoming the first female to visit every sovereign nation. Goals.

She left for her world tour in July 2015, and by February 2017, had visited all 196 countries in the world in 18 months and 26 days, smashing the previous record of three years and three months.


So how did she do it? The trip took over 255 flights and five passports, she spent between two and five days in every location and planted trees in over 50 countriesTravel and Leisure reports.

In order to fund her journey, De Pecol saved $10,000 in babysitting money, and the rest of her $198,000 budget through sponsors, as well as exchanging stays at hotels for social media coverage. So who wants to sponsor us to do the same, then?

Speaking to CNN, Cassie said that some of the hardest moments in her journey came when trying to secure visas. "There have been cases when I post on my Facebook, 'Hi I need help getting into Libya' or 'I need help getting into Syria,' and at that point it's kind of trusting in the unknown, trusting in people."
