If you are someone who loves to travel that you know all about the joy that comes from exploring a new place and enjoying what you can learn about the culture that you are visiting. Some people make it their life’s journey to travel to each country in the world – all 196 of them – and that is exactly what Cassandra De Pecol is doing with her life. The trip covered by sponsors as she works as a bringer of the peace, she flits from country to country and is looking to share her experience with the world through her Instagram profile. She works hard at photographing the important parts about each place that she visits in her life, and her goal is to make sure that she always spreads the word about just why experiencing each country out there is so critical.
She is a voice for many of us that can see the importance in sharing our lives and minds with each country in the world that we visit, and she shows us that all you have to do is make sure that you are perfectly equipped with a camera and a passport. Then, you are free to explore the world and take a look at all of the things that you can learn from it and its people. She is certainly showing us that adventure is anything small or big.
