In this session, I have the privilege to talk to the person who holds the world record for being the youngest American to visit every country in the world.

Lee Abbamonte appears regularly on Fox, Travel Channel, NBC, CNN, BBC, ESPN and many others as well as the New York Times, Washington Post, Conde Nast, to name merely a few. Arthur Frommer called him the Marco Polo of the 21st century and Samantha Brown said his ‘gumption is a jewel all travelers - would be and expert - can rely on.'”

After earning his MBA, he took a career in Wall Street for 8 years. There he realized he could leverage his job to travel and work from the road. He got started and never looked back eventually crossing off every country from his list.

Explorer’s Quote:
