A young woman hopes to become the fastest female to travel to all 196 countries – and she’s just 27-years-old.
Cassie De Pecol is nearing the end of her epic mission to visit all 193 sovereign nations .The traveller from Washington, Connecticut, USA, only began her journey in July of 2015.So far she has ticked off 180 countries, taken over 254 flights and has roughly 26 flights left to go.
According to Daily Mirror, the young adventurer’s trip has cost $198,000 , and she now has 45 days left to visit the final 16 destinations on her list.

Cassie said:

“Since school, I’ve had this desire to visit every country in the world, intrigued to learn more about every culture, natural habitat, and religion.
“In America we are lucky to have such a vast melting pot of cultures and people from all over the world who make the country what it is today.
“I wanted to learn about where these people came from, more specifically, where I came from, with my ancestors originating from Europe.”Is the Middle East really like how they say it is on the news? What about the Amazon?

Cassie added:

“All sponsors and funding is obtained by me while I’m on the road, which is not an easy task.
“If I’m not meeting with the Ministry, giving keynote sessions to university students, collecting samples, obtaining visas, or doing promotion, I travel around the country on my own, but not for long.

“Going to every country was for me a personal quest to learn as much as I could about our world, stepping outside my comfort zone and becoming comfortable in the unknown, while also aiming to leave a legacy behind.””On average, I spend two to five days in each country.
