“I believe in globalization of everything including people. I believe that I am a citizen of Earth. I believe that people around the world are at their core, basically good and the same. I believe that more people should experience the world and the way traveling can open their eyes and minds to different and exciting things. I believe in just being myself. I believe in life.” – Lee Abbamonte

    Traveling sets you free and wipes the bad feelings and thoughts out of my mind.
    Traveling can give optimism, refresh your spirit, wipe your tears of pain, open you up to new opportunities out there…
