A Bucket List to do.

We all have bucket lists, right? These lists may vary given the kind of person you are, and what peaks your interest, but I know for a fact that there’s one thing common on everyone’s list—traveling. Now, you may want to travel to a certain place in the world, maybe just a country or two, but there are definitely some people that want to see the ENTIRE world.

I can’t say I’m one of those people, but my list definitely has a good amount of destinations to see. But quite contrary to me, there’s a 27-year-old young lady, who’s already seen the whole world. Don’t believe it, well keep reading to find out more.
27-year-old Cassandra De Pecol from Connecticut has become the first female to ever visit each Sovereign State, and that too in the fastest time ever. This amazing journey around the world is called Expedition196 and she broke this Guinness World Record  while traveling as an Ambassador for Peace for the International Institute for Peace Through Tourism. Now how amazing is that?
Cassandra had already visited 181 countries by July 2015 and actually managed to complete her visit to the remaining 14 countries in the the 40 days that followed. That means she’s been to all 196 countries in the world! As unbelievable as it may sound, this woman, we’re sure, had a great experience delving into all the beautiful cultures in the world.
She started off in Palau and trekked the world from there. She didn’t mountain skiing, petting lions and tigers, swimming in hot springs—you name it and it’s been done!
