Ostalo joj je još 15 zemalja do cilja
Cassandra De Pecol, 27-godišnjakinja iz Connecticuta, postat će prva žena koja je proputovala apsolutno svih 196 zemalja na svijetu, piše Bored Panda.
Cassandra je svoju avanturu započela u srpnju prošle godine i dosad je posjetila 181 zemlju. Ostalo joj je još 15 zemalja u koje mora stići u roku od 40 dana, a ukoliko uspije (a vjerojatno hoće), srušit će Guinnessov rekord kao djevojka koja je to napravila najbrže na svijetu.
Svoju je svjetsku avanturu nazvala Expedition196 i putuje kao ambasadorica mira u ime Internacionalnog instituta mira kroz turizam.
Iako, nažalost, ne možemo svijetom putovati zajedno s njom, barem njene divne fotke sa svih strana svijeta možemo pratiti na Instagramu. I držimo joj fige da uspije!
Bila je i na Plitvičkim jezerima!
I really don't know how much more beautiful this scene could get here at #Plitvice Lakes in #Croatia. My friends I met from San Diego @hreed07 snapped this photo as I was about to collect samples for @adventurescience. We had a fun little photo shoot 😝. But seriously, this waterfall was just too breathtaking to resist 📸 • • • #Expedition196 #PeaceThroughTourism #EveryCountryInTheWorld

Exulansis. 🕷 The tendency to give up trying to talk about an experience because people are unable to relate to it – whether through envy or pity or simple forgiveness – which allows it to drift away from the rest of your life story, until the memory itself feels out of place, almost mythical, wandering restlessly in the fog, no longer even looking for a place to land. @thedictionaryofobscuresorrows #expedition196 My travel partner (A.K.A.

Angkor Wat, Kambodža
Paro Taktsang, Bhutan
After a 1 hour and 15 minute fast paced uphill trek, I arrived at Paro Taktsang. The pilgrimage was like something out of Avatar, a dream to trek, through low hanging clouds with a harrowing drop at any given moment on either side. Prayer flags swayed through the pines, prayer wheels spinning in the breeze, and tsa-tsas (ashes of the dead) wedged between crevices of stone. Passing over a bridge and waterfall and up the last flight of stairs, I entered one of the chambers where I was completely alone. Tip-toeing past the glowing butter candles and sacred relics, I kneeled on a rug, cracked open an aged window and rested my head on the windowsill to reflect and admire the massive 2,000ft plunge into the vast Himalayan valley below, as clouds swiftly passed. Without my phone or camera equipment, I was able to consciously enjoy this moment in peace. 🏔 • • • #expedition196 #everycountryintheworld

It's a perfect place to come and explore while you're waiting for your flight out of #Reykjavik.

#Paris was blessed with a delicate, crested moon amidst a tenderly pained sky tonight as the people below observed its magnificence in silence. The streets were quiet and the people, humble. Amid the tragedy and heartbreak, everyones humanity, kindness, and unity towards one another was clear. We're all connected, we all stand together; despite religion, political stance, nationality, age or gender. Not a word has to be said when looking into the eyes of those who have endured such heartache. Their compassion shines though and there is a mutual feeling of respect. It's a friendship that has no borders and involves no words, only understanding. Paris and France as a whole, you're in my heart, you're in my thoughts. ❤️🇫🇷❤️ • • • #Expedition196 #Peace #Solidarité
