A YOUNG female traveller has become the first documented woman to visit every country in the world – and she did it at record speed.
Adventurous Cassie De Pecol, 27, travelled to all 196 sovereign nations in a record-breaking 18 months and 26 days.
The intrepid American embarked on her journey in July 2015 just after her 25th birthday and 255 flights later, completed her mission.
She budgeted a whopping $198,000 (£170,000) for the trip – most of which was given by sponsors.
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.”
