We all remember Cassanda De Pecol, the girl from USA who had proudly claimed to have broken the Guinness World Record.
In case you had forgotten, Cassanda traveled to 196 countries, beginning from the Pacific island of Palau in July 2015, that lasted 18 months and 26 days – half the time recorded previously in the Guinness World Record.
From all the countries she visited, the travel enthusiast gave Telegraph Travel her list of top 10 destinations; and here’s the list:
Fall in New England is something everyone should experience.
They say home is where the heart is, and the more I travel, the more that’s becoming more real to me.
9. Costa Rica, Central America
Monkeys, fresh fruit, good music and volcanoes…need I say more?
8. Peru, South America
The Amazon rainforest and Aguas Calientes [gateway to Machu Picchu].
7. Tunisia, North Africa
To experience northern African culture with a Middle Eastern feel and an immense amount of archaeological history.
6. Oman, Arabian Peninsula
To immerse yourself in the desert and mountains, while learning from locals who live in the mountains, it’s a whole different lifestyle.
To get a true sense of raw, authentic Asian culture, and for the food.
De Pecol especially appreciated Pakistan, because she had to wait four months for her visa approval.
4. Vanuatu, South Pacific
To experience the process of how Kava is made and to meet some of the kindest people.
To see some of the bluest water, whitest sand and most stunning sand banks in the world.
To learn the ethics of peaceful living. The pilgrimage [to Paro Taktsang] was something out of Avatar, a dream to trek through low-hanging clouds with a harrowing drop at any given moment on either side.
To be immersed in the remote wilderness and to ride the wild horses.
