Disclaimer: If you are a travel junkie who has yet to travel the world but cannot because “desi parents won’t allow me till I am married”, read this article at your own risk. Tears are evident.
Our social media spaces are filled with how people are travelling to different parts of the world. Whenever someone goes out and hits a “traveling spree”, they instantly make it to the news and we envy their luck and obviously loathe them for how their financial conditions and parents allow them to see the world. Newest addition to the list of people who are traveling the world is Cassandra De Pecol – a 27-year-old who is all set to create a record of traveling to the entire world!
Seems Like A Dream, Doesn’t It?
Meet Cassandra De Pecol
Calling her journey as Expenditure196, Cassandra aims to travel to 196 countries in the world and wants to be the fastest and the first ever documented woman in the world by setting a record.
She Started Her Journey In 2015
Cassandra started off in July 2015 with Palau being the first country.
In The Course of A Year, She Has Visited 181 Countries
Her Photography Is Breathtaking

If you are wondering how much money is spent so far, every trip costs around $200,000. Lucky for her, all of the trips so far are sponsored, which makes it even better.
The 27 year old has seen most of the places people long to see their entire lives. In the next 40 days, she has to visit 15 countries to set the world record.

“The more I traveled the more I realized that fear makes strangers of people who should be friends.” Shirley MacLaine • • • I finally mustered up the courage to leave my hotel and explore to streets of Kabul. What I found opened up my eyes to a whole new world ????❤️???????? Vlog soon to come. • • • #Expedition196 #PeaceThroughTourism #EveryCountryInTheWorld #Afghanistan
Hoping To See Pictures of Pakistan Soon!
Huge Thank You to @travisa_visa for assisting in the processing of a good chunk of my South America, Middle East, Central Asia and Southeast Asia/Asia visas in time! So far we’re good with visas in correlation to my planned itinerary and it’s all thanks to everyone over at #Travisa for assisting to rush process these visas in time! ???? • • • I was so nervous over the summer that I had to push back my Middle East/Central Asia journey because I couldn’t get my visas finished in time. Then I had to push back the Middle East/Central Asia again in the new year. But thankfully it looks like it’s all going to work out just fine ???? • • • #Expedition196 #Sponsored
We wish Cassandra all the best for her journey!
One Day, us desi girls will be able to do this aswell *sigh*
