(businesspress24) - Cassie DePecol


Although it might seem like an impossible task, Cassie rigorously planned her entire journey. Each country was limited to a maximum visit of five days, whilst many were visited in just two. To organise transport Cassie became an online specialist using a variety of providers and price comparison sites. In total the trip took a year and half to plan

Applying for visas and accommodation proved to be one of the hardest aspects of the expedition, especially due to the cancellations and delays inevitable with such long-distance travel. Even if it seems like a bore, getting the planning stage sorted is crucial to making your own trip a success.



This role involved supporting a number of nifty initiatives such as the Pack for a Purpose campaign which encourages prospective tourists to bring much needed academic resources when visiting certain countries with specific educational needs. With a large number of countries came large audiences for Cassie to promote her message. She spoke to over 12,500 students as well as governmental officials. The message was simple: sustainable tourism is a great means to promote peace between countries.

Protection of the environment was a central component of this sustainability message. Whilst travelling, Cassie aided in the collection of water samples to check for the presence of micro plastics. To combat air pollution involved in the numerous flights she took, Cassie endorsed a tree planting campaign to make long-distance travelling carbon-neutral. Giving back is a great way to keep going on long adventures.
