A Connecticut resident is only a few flights away from becoming the youngest woman to visit every country in the world.
 
27-year-old Cassie De Pecol has spent nearly $200,000 on her journey over the past two years, including her 250 plane tickets. If she keeps up her pace, she will also visit every single country in the fastest time ever.
 
“I’m starting to wrap my head around it," said De Pecol. "It’s becoming really surreal now."
 
With 181 countries under her belt, De Pecol just has 15 more to go.
