Cassandra de Pecol the US citizen who became the world’s first ever documented fastest traveler within 18 months by visiting the 196 countries rates Pakistan among the top 10 worth seeing countries of the world.
Cassandra had visited Pakistan in December after four months of constant waiting for her visa approval. While talking to Outlook Pakistan, she said, ” My current visit to Pakistan is very brief, I wish to come back and tour the hilly areas of the country that are enriched with natural beauty.”
While talking about the uniqueness of Pakistan, she remarked, “What I like Pakistan is religion, I like Pakistan, and I like Muslims. Religion has impacted Pakistani society in a positive way”.
While telling Telegraph about the top 10 worth visiting countries of the world she rated Pakistan on number 5. She said one should visit Pakistan to “get a real sense of raw and authentic Asian culture and for the food.”
She remarked in an Instagram post that her time in Pakistan was one of the “many wonderfully educational and culturally enriching experiences.”
The hospitality I’ve received so far in #Pakistan and specifically #Karachi has been astounding! From being offered a random, free upgrade to business class on @gulfair to being graced with the amazing hospitality of the crew and entering the cockpit and meeting the Pilot (the Captain knew about my Expedition before I even told him!), speaking to the students at the Institute of Business Administration, meeting the Mayor of Karachi, Mr. Wasim Akhtar, for the planting of the Cedrus Deodara tree (the National Tree of Pakistan) ????, coming back to my beautiful (sponsored) hotel and seeing my story and Mission on the front page of Traveller International, and finally, meeting with @rotaryinternational tonight! So incredibly humbling. Also, just comes to show (for those who think I’m not seeing anything in the countries I visit and that 2-5 days isn’t enough) that it’s all about time management and maximizing every moment of your time to make the most with what you have. But same applies to everything else in life, doesn’t it? My time here in Pakistan has just begun and has been one of the many wonderfully educational and culturally enriching experiences on #Expedition196. Don’t judge a book by its color or a country by the media. Much love ❤️???????? #peacethroughtourism • • • ✨Snapchat @ cassiedepecol To view all videos from today including the tree planting and meeting with the Mayor, head to Facebook.com/expedition196 ✨
