Those of you who follow my blog closely know that I don’t often post trips that I haven’t experienced myself. This is an exception as it comes highly recommended by someone a trust: Lee Abbamonte the youngest American to go to every country in the world. Lee worked on Wall Street before giving it all up to travel, eventually starting a blog. A friend of mine with great taste in adventure travel, I know that if Lee says it’s a great trip… it’s a great trip.

It’s currently out of my budget, but I didn’t want to keep people who could experience this opportunity of a lifetime to miss out.
