Lee has led an incredible life, traveling to all 193 countries and being the youngest American to accomplish this feat at that time.  And he is only 6 territories away from completing the Travelers Century Club. Lee travels in style whether it is entering his 193rd country under a hail of gunfire or hanging out with Prince Harry in Antarctica.  Lee grew up in modest circumstances and began his travel with a semester abroad in London.  This trip and the loss of his friends on 9/11 sparked his interest in travel.  Lee was motivated to complete the Travelers Century Club after he read an article about Charles Veley accomplishing the TCC list.  He shares with us the high and lows of traveling in Africa.  Lee recounts summiting Mt. Kilimanjaro and spotting lions in the Serengeti.  And also, how even the ATMs in Nigeria are in on the scam.  Lee shares his journey to off-the- beaten path places like Tuvalu (awful experience) and Pitcairn Islands (rewarding experience).  Please listen in and enjoy.                   Subscribe on iTunes today!

Add this to another station Ali Reynolds, Luxury Reserve Brand Ambassador at Diageo Reserve GB (24.83MB; download) -- Ali Reynolds' first love may have been sports, but after graduating from university, his job as bartender kept him inside many a basement establishment. His competitive spirit never wavered and led him to win the Oscar of the drinking world: Diageo World Class UK Bartender in 2015. Now as brand ambassador for Diageo Reserve, he is more likely to be found upstairs rather than downstairs. Although he might be slinging fewer Blue Blazers behind a bar, Ali’s innate nature as a competitor and creator will show him to be a leader in whatever position he’s playing.   Where you can hear me drinking next: Next time, we meet Leon Dalloway who’s also won his fair share of awards. You may bump into him leading his award winning Gin Journey throughout the foggy streets of 18th Century London...if you’re not careful. Are you a regular listener of the Best Sips Worldwide podcast?

Add this to another station The Little Things We Miss About Home...And Will Miss About Thailand (2.25) (27.01MB; download) -- On this episode, we discuss the little things we love about Bangkok, as well as the little things we miss about where we're from. Plus Evo’s recent trip to Siem Reap and the concept of farang “embarassadors”. Evo spent a week in Siem Reap and completely loved it. Greg agrees that it’s likely the most amazing destination in SE Asia -- possibly the world -- for those interested in archaeology. Color us impressed, ancient Khmer people! The main topic of the show: It’s the little things. No, not a Royale with Cheese, but the little things we miss about where we’re from, now that we live in The Land Of Smiles that is Thailand. Not to spoil everything from the episode completely, but here’s the list of things we miss: Clothes dryers Psychological weather cues Easy access to drugs Easy access to my money But the reverse is true, and there are little things about living in Bangkok that we’re going to miss should we ever leave The Big Mango. Again, you’ll have to listen for the full details why we’re really liking: Pain-free condo moving Rules bent cheaply Instant, ubiquitous transport options Space not at a premium If that doesn’t make perfect sense, just listen. You’ll get it it. And then you’ll know why we love this place. Speaking of that... Love, Loathe, or Leave? First, heck yes! Let’s keep the #loveloatheorleave hashtag going! Drop one on any social media property. We’ll probably see it. Kinda like the shirtless farang. The clueless, class-less, totally-missing-the-point of living in Bangkok idiot who isn’t wearing a shirt. Guess where they fall on our #loveloatheorleave scale. Listen in to find out some surprising facts about how the law can get involved if you choose to go topless, fellas. Want more?
