I am Stuart Marra, founder of The Opulent Explorer and lux travel expert. The travel bug bit me in 1998 while I was crossing the Pacific Ocean during a college Semester at Sea. Since then, with both family and friends, I have traveled to sixty different countries (and have run out of passport pages twice). I’ve scaled the ancient Great Pyramids in Egypt, sipped Pinotage in Franschhoek, toured Pablo Escobar’s Medellin prison with a former gang member, and faked my way through a dozen different languages (with the help of Google Translate).
However, none of that was originally in the cards for me. What do I mean? I mean this . . .
