Pokud si někdo myslel, že toho v životě viděl opravdu hodně, tak ve srovnání s mladou Američankou a její cestou kolem světa zřejmě zůstane trošku zahanben. Pouze 27letá Cassandra De Pecol stihla od léta loňského roku procestovat tolik kilometrů, že vstoupila na území 181 zemí, zatímco zbývajících 15 má ještě před sebou. Aby však mohla být zapsána v Guinessově knize rekordů za rychlost návštěvy všech suverénních i nesuverénních států, musí to stihnout za zhruba 40 dnů, píše web boredpanda. Své dobrodružství nazvala Expedition196 a podle dostupných informací cestuje jako "ambasador míru" pod záštitou mezinárodního institutu s názvem International Institute for Peace Through Tourism. A pokud někoho zajímá více, tak níže najde i několik úžasných fotografií z cest, respektive může Cassandru sledovat na sociálních sítích. Zde je Instagram, Twitter a také Facebook.
Don't be fooled by the calendar. There are only as many days in the year as you make use of. One man gets only a week's value out of a year while another man gets a full year's value out of a week. - Charles Richards • • • For me, this expedition is a matter of maximizing every single moment that I have within a given day, to absorb as much as I can with the little time that I have on this earth. Only you know your true story, only you know your truth. Don't ever let anyone deter you from what you already know to be true. Keep chipping away; pursue, persist, let fear fuel your fire to achieve the best that you can achieve. Let the negativity received from others drive you to accomplish the impossible. You know your story, you know your schedule. Maximize each hour of every minute of your day in order to succeed. You can do it, you own your life. Time is all relative, I'm noticing as I stare up at this clock at Grand Central Station. ⏳ • • • #expedition196 #mondaymotivation

These days, I find that more often than not I have a difficult time smiling. Life isn't as comical as it used to be for me (#adulthood). I'm home now, obtaining the last of the visas for the 19 countries left, and for the first time, trying to wrap my head around what I just went through these past 15 months. I'm sure that many of you can relate to the feelings that I have; the nightmares and the sadness when it comes to seeing and experiencing certain things that are very challenging to comprehend. That being war, famine, harassment, unfairness, brutality, etc. To be honest, I'm trying desperately to focus on the good, but sometimes I find that I have to just let the mental challenge of it all run its course. I've written down every moment of every day since day one, and have written many deep articles as well, some which I hope to share with you all once this Expedition is completed. There's always more than meets the eye, and aside from the positive and happy times that I share with you on a daily basis, I look forward to also sharing the more somber of times, hoping that we can cultivate positive change as a result. #human #expedition196
Exulansis. The tendency to give up trying to talk about an experience because people are unable to relate to it - whether through envy or pity or simple forgiveness - which allows it to drift away from the rest of your life story, until the memory itself feels out of place, almost mythical, wandering restlessly in the fog, no longer even looking for a place to land. @thedictionaryofobscuresorrows #expedition196 My travel partner (A.K.A.
