Meet Cassie De Pecol, the
first woman to travel to 196 countries in the world within 18 months. Today we
at Bright Side share with you Cassie’s list of 10 countries which she strongly
recommends adding to your bucket list.
— The USA
— Costa Rica

Monkeys, fresh fruit, great
music, and volcanoes… Need I say more?!
— Peru

The Amazon rainforest, the
town of Aguas Calientes, and the ruins of the ancient Inca citadel of Machu
Picchu made Peru one of my favorite places in the world.
— Tunisia
Here you can experience the
spirit of Northern Africa. There’s a large number of ancient monuments, and the
town of Sidi Bou Said, located 20 km from the capital of Tunisia, just blew me
— Oman
It’s so cool to immerse
yourself in the desert and mountains and be surrounded by local people whose
lifestyle is totally different from yours!
— Pakistan
To get a true sense of
authentic Asian culture and to try the best food ever!
— Vanuatu
Just to see how Kava is made
and to meet the kindest people in the world!
— Maldives
To enjoy the bluest water,
whitest sand, and the most stunning beaches on Earth!
— Bhutan
The pilgrimage to Paro
Taktsang (“The Tiger’s Nest”) was like something out of Avatar. I was
walking along a narrow path through low-hanging clouds. Prayer flags swayed
through the pines; prayer wheels were spinning in the breeze. Crossing the
bridge over the waterfall, I entered one of the chambers where I was completely
alone. Tip-toeing past the glowing butter candles and sacred relics, I stopped
at the window to admire the vast Himalayan valley from a height of 2,000 ft.
— Mongolia
Here you can be totally alone
with pristine nature and ride wild horses. Mongolia is the most amazing and
peaceful place I’d ever been to during this expedition.
Once again, Cassie’s list
proves that the countries you’ve probably never thought to visit before may
become the coolest and the most interesting holiday destinations.
