A 27 years old American woman has every chance of entering the Guinness World Records after she visited the 196 countries of the world in just 18 months and 26 days.
Cassie De Pecol’s adventure not only brought down the record for visiting all countries of the world in the shortest time but also the record set by a woman.
The previous record was three years, three months and six days.
According to Guinness World Records, the previous record holder is Yili Liu, who was managed to visit all countries of the world between September of 2007 and December of 2010. He managed to visit all 194 sovereign countries at that time.
The adventure of Cassie De Pecol started in Palau in 2015, with $10,000 in savings, money she earned while babysitting. She spent, on average, between three and five days in each country she visited and the adventure came to an end in Yemen, on February 2.
After spending all of her money, Cassie De Pecol managed to get some sponsors, including sponsorship from the Institute for Peace Through Tourism.
