Twenty-one-year-old Lexie Alford can legitimately add the title ‘World Wide Traveler’ to her resume after smashing the Guinness World Record for being the youngest person to visit every country in the world.
The globe-trotting blogger was fortunate enough to be exposed to travel at a young age thanks to her mom’s travel agency business.

According to AOL, by the time Alford was 18 she had traveled to 70 countries, well on her way to visiting all 196 countries.
Alford told Yahoo Finance she began working at her mom’s travel agency at the age of 15 with Forbes reporting Alford earned her high school diploma two-year early and earned an associates from a local college before dedicating herself full-time to breaking the world record.
According to AOL, Alford had to submit nearly 10,000 pieces of evidence to Guinness World Records in chronological order to officially be named a world record holder.

Alford, who admits she is a minimalist when it comes to packing for her travels, supplemented her income by blogging while traveling and hopes to someday release a book about her adventures.
