TRAVEL DIARIES BY AN UNSUNG HERO
Who doesnt want to travel ? It is such a fun way of exploring places around the world. If you are a travel lover then you must have heard about Cassandra De Pecol, an inspiration for many travelers.
Cassandra is a US traveler who has initiated her travel journey in July 2015 aiming to travel to 196 of the world in a duration of just 2 years.Cassandra has already visited 181 countries and filled up 4 passports, racing to towards Guinness World Record for the fastest person to travel to all the countries in the world. I recently read her story and it is so inspiring . Though she gets paid for travelling by various NGOs , the patience she bore in travelling is such an inspiration for young travelers. It is the natural tendency of humans to get back to our comfort zones and relax at our homes instead of taking up the adventure for the whole 2 years . It takes a lot of dedication to do it without getting travel sick. Traveling alone has increased her self esteem. She is an athlete and has run many times for the Iron man.
She has been a part of Eco Tourism and Sustainable Hospitality since the time she was just 18. Her fitness level supports her passion for travelling. Cassandra says she loves exploring new places culture, environments in countries around the world that are in need of tourism .When I read her posts , it just inspires me to quit my studies and fasten by bags and travel the world. Cassandra has spent her last 16 months in ticking the list of 196 countries and spent $209,060 including airfare. Her Travel expenses are mostly sponsored from big houses or revenue generated from her social media posts.
When asked what motivated her to travel she replied I worked odd jobs in sales, website development, marketing and childcare. While I developed great relationships with the families that I worked with and really enjoyed caring for children, there wasnt a future there, in regards to my career. Despite all of my odd jobs, I was able to barely pay the bills, which is also what fueled my desire to take off on this quest as soon as I could. .
Besides the wish of setting the record of travelling the world, she also aims to promote peace through sustainable tourism. She calls herself the chief explorer of Expedition 196, which is a journey around the world in record time for world peace. Cassandra De Pecol is also an ambassador for the International Institute of Peace Through Tourism and is collecting water samples for Adventurers and Scientists for Conservation. And shes making a documentary about her trip, too. This human inspired me not to do anything regular and just follow my dreams . Her documentary can be a guide book for travelers who want to explore the world . Shes my unsung hero .
