Since visiting the DPRK by Americans is strictly prohibited, the girl had to go to a trick. In the Guinness Book of Records, she discovered a curious rule according to which a visit to Panmunjom (a place in the Joint Security Zone between North and South Korea) is equivalent to a visit to the DPRK.

Also, according to the girl, there were some difficulties with her movements in Africa. Safe transport is incredibly expensive here. Taking advantage of the fact that this is the only option to get from point "A" to point "B" without risking their lives, the locals set absolutely sky-high prices for tourists.

Since Lexi pays for all her trips herself, the issue of saving is acute for her. That is why the traveler practically does not use mobile communication while in other countries, stays overnight in hostels and inexpensive hotels, and if possible changes the advertising of the institution in her Instagram account for its free services.

In California, Lexi lives with her parents, which also helps her save. When traveling, the girl remotely works as a consultant for their family travel agency.

South Sudan, Somalia, CAR, Mali, Chad and Papua New Guinea are the few states in which she spent only 2-3 days, because the budget did not allow her to stay here longer and not put herself at risk.
