Top 10 Countries: From the Woman Who Visited All 196

Cassie De Pecol recently became the youngest – and fastest – woman to travel to each of the world’s 196 countries. The 27-year-old also became the ultimate go-to source on unmissable destinations because she can say, with a certain level of authority most of us can’t, which countries truly are the best.

With 196 countries to choose from, what are the “must sees” according to this seasoned globetrotter? De Pecol shares her top 10 countries around the world, some of which may surprise you!
