“Our generation, ‘The Millennia’s’, have a unique opportunity to change the world with the internet and instant communication which has no borders. We are all connected and my journey is showing that connection. Millennials can unite the world,” said 26-year-old Los Angeles native Cassandra De Pecol, who visited Dominica on January 10th, as part of her Guinness World Record-setting Expedition that includes stopovers in 196 countries.
She stayed at the luxurious and sustainable Secret Bay.
Dubbed “The Peaceful Traveler’s Journey”, Ms. De Pecol is attempting to become the first documented woman to travel to 196 Nations in record time and set a Guinness World Record.
In the process, she wishes to promote peace and sustainability claiming that Millennials can unite the world.
As part of her tour, she also hopes to demonstrate that her generation can create positive, peaceful relations with all countries, in part through sustainable tourism, which brings cultures together and makes a positive impact on the environment, society and economy.
Visiting each country as an Ambassador of the International Institute of Peace Through Tourism (IIPT) and Skal International (the world’s largest not-for-profit multi-discipline travel and tourism organization), De Pecol will be planting a tree and collecting water samples for the Adventurers and Scientists for Conservation (adventurescience.org) project, to then test for Microplastics.
During her stay in Dominica, she filmed for her Documentary at the Secret Bay, located at the north-western side of Dominica near Portsmouth. She also ocean water samples for ASC and met with local dignitaries.
“Tourism is one of the only industries in the world that has seen constant growth over the past 25 years with over 1 billion people traveling in 2014”, states De Pecol. “By traveling and meeting others and being accepting of different cultures, traditions and beliefs we can break down the barriers of mistrust and suspicion and really start a drive to a better and more humane world where people just simply enjoy and embrace the differences amongst us.”

Welcome to Dominica. Enjoy your stay. Wherever you travel to may your stay be an enjoyable one filled with memories.
This would be something if people of the world love and respect each other and their culture. There would be no wars and crimes of every sort, to mention a few.
I sure hope that this is not what our precious and beloved Supreme Leader was referring to when he stated a few weeks ago that Dominica would be receiving regional and international recognition in the near future. I also hope it’s not the rumored Royal Dominica Hotel as most Dominicans are fed up with news about “new” Hotels. We can hardly fill the Hotel rooms we already have. In any event, we welcome Ms. Cassandra De Pecol and Our generation, ‘The Millennia’s to our beautiful shore. We all hope that you enjoy your stay here and that you will have a wonderful experience that will encourage you to speak well of us and encourage many others to visit. Again, thank you for coming and welcome to the blessed and beautiful Nature Island.
She most probably will leave with a Dominican passport.
