THE YOUNGEST TRAVELLER TO TRAVEL ALL THE COUNTRIES ON EARTH
While we are here thinking twice to go from our room to the kitchen, this 21-year-old has become the youngest woman to have touched every country on Earth.
Since her parents had their own travel agency, traveling is all that she did since she was merely a kid. She describes her urge to travel all the time because her parents had a knack to do so too.
Lexie said that “My parents placed a lot of importance on exposing me to every way of life around the world and that had a very profound impact on the person I am today. I’ve always had a curiosity about other people’s ways of life and how they find happiness.”
Her enthusiasm for traveling all along was never to break any kind of records and all, but to explore various countries. When Lexie was asked about her motto behind traveling all the cities she came up with an excellent answer “It wasn’t until things started getting really challenging that I realized I was inspiring people around me, especially young women. Feeling that support meant that I couldn’t give up when things got tough. I was determined to show everyone that the world isn’t as scary as the media portrays it to be and that there’s kindness everywhere.”
Someone asked Lexie whether she is afraid of traveling alone, to this Lexie said,” Personally, I get freaked out the most by hypothetical scenarios I make up in my head rather than what might really happen to me. I think it’s like this for most people. We become afraid of what we hear on the news without really understanding how low the probability is of actually having an issue.”
But since traveling is not the cheapest thing to do, she did have a lot of planning to do. Her traveling has always been ‘self-funded’. She got hold of some branded deals throughout her journey by particularly being active on her Instagram page. She did a lot of photography and blogging through her journey. She also co-hosted a travel show which will be airing soon.
