Американская туристка посетила 196 стран за полтора года

27-летняя американка Кассандра Де Пеколь посетила 196 стран мира за 18 месяцев и 26 дней. Она поставила сразу два рекорда, пишет издание Seeker: стала первой женщиной, посетившей все страны мира и сделала это быстрее, чем кто-либо (ранее быстрее других все страны посетил американский профессор Или Лю — за три года, три месяца и шесть дней).

Свое путешествие Кассандра Де Пеколь начала в июле 2015 года и поставила цель — посетить все 193 страны, входящие в Организацию Объединенных Наций, а также три частично признанные государства — Китайскую Республику (Тайвань), Косово и Палестину.

Последней страной, куда попала американка, стал Йемен — туда она приехала 4 февраля. В среднем на одну страну у нее уходило от двух до пяти дней, иногда путешественница вынужденно возвращалась домой, чтобы найти новых спонсоров, которые оплатят расходы. Всего она потратила около 200 тысяч долларов.

По словам Де Пеколь, она с детства хотела посмотреть мир и познакомиться с разными культурами.


Just a few of my friends who hosted me for lunch in #Yemen. These were just half of the brothers who I dined with, the ladies don't like to have their photos taken and I wanted to respect that, they were all so shy yet so incredibly sweet and kind. The citizens of Yemen are really, so hospitable and happy. I loved being in their company. They live so simply yet comfortably with the love of their family. Family is very important in Yemen. ❤🌎 I'm so honored that Yemen was my last and final country of #Expedition196. The most challenging to get to but one of the most rewarding once in 🙏🏽. Zero fears, zero regrets, just respect, acceptance and love ❤🇾🇪

I'll admit I've made some petty mistakes on this Expedition, but none have amounted to the mistake I just made coming to Cuba where I forgot to take out cash in the US before coming. For those of you who don't know, Cuba doesn't accept US debit/credit cards or bank transfers, PayPal or anything of the sort, which, I knew of but completely forgot to honor. I arrived having reserved my hotel (but not paid in advance) and went on to take a taxi only to find that I just had enough cash to pay half the fare once we arrived. The hotel wasn't able to assist with the issue, and I had no other choice but to spend the rest of the night walking probably 12 hours back to the airport at midnight to spend the rest of my time in Cuba. I felt very defeated and couldn't believe this mistake I had made when I knew I had to bring cash before I came. The taxi driver who took me to the hotel told me that he has daughters and didn't want to leave me stranded, so he decided to not require any further compensation and took me back to the airport to sleep there. If that wasn't kind enough, he asked his friends at the airport restaurant if they could feed me, and they offered me rice, beans and pork as well as fresh papaya juice, water and rum, which of course I couldn't drink/eat any of because I was so nauseated and upset by my mistake. The taxi driver then offered to take me to his home where I could spend the night. His wife gave me her bed while she slept on the living room floor. This is the only time on this Expedition where I had no other choice but to accept the offerings of a stranger in order to avoid what could have ended in a devastating night, walking 12 hours on a deserted road back to the airport. I felt horrible accepting his help, but knew that he eagerly wanted to help me. If you see this, muchisimas gracias, Maliene and Dagoberto. No sé lo que habría hecho sin su inmensa hospitalidad. #payitforward #expedition196

Traveling through Africa has been the most challenging for me. It's not only the most expensive leg (flights, hotels), the one that requires the most visas in advance that are also expensive, but physically challenging as well, with needing to be careful with my water and food intake, malaria prevention, etc. as well. In my lifetime, I've experienced an immense amount of poverty in countries around the world and have lived/worked in impoverished nations, but I've never seen anything like what I have seen so far throughout Western Africa in particular. I've had such an urge to want to jump outside of my body and leave everything I have to just walk through the villages and live with these people, sit on the side of the road with them. The other day driving around in Bamako it took everything in me to not just jump out of the car and start walking into the dead of night. I can't explain this feeling but I don't expect anyone to relate, as if this Expedition were unrelatable enough, but I've never really had the feeling of wanting to become invisible to the point of where I can safely live like a local in some of these countries, without being viewed as a tourist or "white girl" or that I had any money at all. When I'm in these places, I feel for these people and the way they live. I can't believe that if I were back in the states this weekend I'd probably be concerned about feeding my dogs more than myself, and baking a pumpkin pie or going to Starbucks for a pumpkin spice latte. But this weekend... I'm here. And it pained me to eat even just plate of steamed vegetables knowing that these people outside are suffering in this 95 degree dry heat, landlocked with little resources for water and food, where the life expectancy is just 54 years old. Maybe when you drink a pumpkin spice latte today, you can think of this. These people would kill for one (I would too, figuratively speaking 😬). It's not to feel guilty for what we have, but I think we have a responsibility as earthlings to be educated and subconsciously aware. At the end of the day, we don't have a choice what society we're born into, but we can at least be aware.
