Lexie Alford … Collecting 10,000 Documents 

Lexie is the youngest person to travel to every country in the world  

This is my second conversation with Lexie.  As I have mentioned before, I constantly debate whether to invite guests back for a second conversation, especially since I only publish podcasts on a monthly basis at this time.  But I considered Lexie’s accomplishment worth a second conversation as I had become vested in her journey as I tracked her travels on social media and we would occasionally converse.  And I also admire Lexie. As a 21, she carries herself with a lot of grace and maturity.         

I am reminding you that Counting Countries is now partnered with Patreon.  Patreon is a platform that allows patrons, that’s you, to support creators, and that is me creating Counting Countries.  And thanks to my other patrons, Ted Nims, Bisa Myles, Ryan Gazder, and Adam Hickman. As thanks, they are able to listen to additional interviews. 

Counting Countries is offering its first group tour to Bhutan on November 7th. Please go to GlobalGaz.com to see more information as well as disclosures.  And I am reminding you of a trip to Madagascar in August of 2020 with G Adventures. On this episode, I also have a brief discussion with Chris Duncan, he is a a product manager for Africa. Check out the link to see some of their trips

 Lexie became the youngest person to travel to every country in the world completing the goal as a 21 year old.  She will soon be applying to earn the Guiness World Record for youngest as she gathers 10,000 plus documents. Lexie shares some of the highlights of her journey to Pakistan and Venezuela.  And shares some frustration during her technical visits to Syria and North Korea.       

I encourage you to subscribe wherever you listen, Apple Podcast, Google Play, Stitcher, or Spotify and write a review, even better if it is 5 stars.  Why? Because that is what keeps this podcast going.      

But for now, here’s my conversation with Lexie who was in the City of Angels and I was in the Windy City.  Please listen in and enjoy.   

Thank you to my Patrons …. Adam Hickman, Bisa Myles, Ted Nims & Ryan Gazder.

About Counting Countries

Counting Countries is the only podcast to bring you the stories from the dedicated few who’ve spent their lives on the singular quest of traveling to every country in the world. Less people have traveled to every country in the world than have been to outer space.

Theme music for this podcast is Demeter’s Dance, written, performed, and provided by Mundi.

An analysis of these lists and who is the best traveled by Kolja Spori.  

Check out our friend and his new book:    

The Curious Case of William Baekeland William is a former guest of Counting Countries.  Harry Mitsidis, the author and extreme traveler, traces William’s arrival and unraveling in the travel community.  It is a story worthy of a film … and this book.
