A Global Speedy Gonzalez: Cassie DePecol's Round the World Adventure


 
Travel & Tourism
Cassie DePecol’s incredible round the world adventure sounds like something straight out of Hollywood. In just under two years, she visited all 197 sovereign nations in the world to become the fastest person ever to have done so. Alongside a Guinness World Record, she has been recognised for her achievement in Time Magazine’s “women leaders who are changing the world” campaign. She has also been featured in an outdoor exhibit at the National Women’s History Museum. Planning and completing such a challenge might seem terrifying, but here’s how she did it.

Planning

Although it might seem like an impossible task, Cassie rigorously planned her entire journey. Each country was limited to a maximum visit of five days, whilst many were visited in just two. To organise transport Cassie became an online specialist using a variety of providers and price comparison sites. In total the trip took a year and half to plan – almost the length of the trip itself!

Applying for visas and accommodation proved to be one of the hardest aspects of the expedition, especially due to the cancellations and delays inevitable with such long-distance travel. Even if it seems like a bore, getting the planning stage sorted is crucial to making your own trip a success.

Motivation

Cassie’s adventure also came with an important message. Whilst travelling she worked as an ambassador for the International Institute of Peace Through Tourism. After all, what better way to spread a message of peace than by bringing it to every corner of the globe?

This role involved supporting a number of nifty initiatives such as the Pack for a Purpose campaign which encourages prospective tourists to bring much needed academic resources when visiting certain countries with specific educational needs. With a large number of countries came large audiences for Cassie to promote her message. She spoke to over 12,500 students as well as governmental officials. The message was simple: sustainable tourism is a great means to promote peace between countries.

Protection of the environment was a central component of this sustainability message. Whilst travelling, Cassie aided in the collection of water samples to check for the presence of micro plastics. To combat air pollution involved in the numerous flights she took, Cassie endorsed a tree planting campaign to make long-distance travelling carbon-neutral. Giving back is a great way to keep going on long adventures.

You Next?

Cassie’s astonishing voyage took her to the furthest corners of the world. From skiing in Switzerland to trekking through the remote mountains of Bhutan, the epic journey encompassed the most diverse environments the world has to offer.

If you are interested in participating in such an adventure, make sure to plan as much as possible. This should involve route mapping, transport and a comprehensive travel insurance policy from a reputable provider. Perhaps most importantly, make sure you take some motivation with you; whether your passion is world peace, the environment or just treating yourself, that is what will get you through when the going gets tough!
