Lexie Alford from Nevada City, California, recently broke the Guinness World Record to become the youngest person to travel to every country in the world.
At the age of 23, she visited 196 countries in an effort to challenge herself and push the limits of what she believed was possible for a female solo traveler.
Lexie primarily used planes, boats, and trains to get around. She highlighted the latter mode of transport as her favorite, “since you can stare out the window at the ever-changing landscapes,” she told Insider.
Commuting on trains is almost a form of “slow travel,” Alford said. “You can watch entire countries go flying past.”
