Moreover, she has just fifteen countries left to visit in 40 days to break the Guinness World Record for the fastest person to travel to all Sovereign States (plus an additional 11 countries).
Cassie’s amazing journey is in itself an expedition with a mission and she has aptly named it Expedition196. She is not just a traveler but also Ambassador for Peace on behalf of the International Institute for Peace Through Tourism.
The trip has cost almost $200,000 so far but the costs are covered by sponsors.
