21-Year-Old American Woman Becomes Youngest Person To Visit Every Country.

It turns out that being an American that’s applying for a visa in certain countries wasn’t exactly easy.

Lexie admitted to spending years in the US and abroad trying to reapply in the hopes of getting some visas approved. She had to apply for the necessary paperwork in areas like the United Arab Emirates, London, Senegal, and the Ivory Coast. But as you can see, persistence paid off.

Lexie used her site and social media to update her followers on what magical place she was visiting.

Her site displayed the number of countries she traveled too which is 196. The tab also shows the number in the tab of remaining countries, which is zero. This told her followers that she had done what she set out to do.

Over the last two years, she traveled on her own for seven months to about 50 countries.

Her journey spanned from Europe to Asia, Africa, Central and South America, the Caribbean, and the South Pacific Islands. But if you ask us, it seems like she had a wicked time in Cambodia. But on occasion, she needed wheels to travel.

Lexie took a breather on the hood of a 4x4 Land Rover by the Karakoram Mountains.

This was just a pit stop. After a 3-hour drive across the treacherous terrain courtesy of a local driver, Lexie set out to hike to Fairy Meadows, a deeply secluded wilderness in Northern Pakistan. But everyone in the group she traveled had their own pace, which at times made her feel more isolated.

For Lexie, the best part of waking up abroad was knowing that a brand-new adventure awaited.

So, she set off on a new journey with the sole mission of snapping photos, trying new food, and making friends with the locals. But although her trip was self-funded, she had to accept some brand deals blogging, and photography work to earn some extra cash.
