‘My passport looks like Mike Tyson’s face, it has lots of ink on it!” he said, having traveled to a total of 72 countries in the past 10 years.’
This time around in K-town, we had a chance to catch up with one of the internet sensations, Justin Ross Lee,who likes to be known as a travel influencer, a published author, and a bit of a travel hacker. A bit? He is a self-proclaimed “JewJetter,” a term he coined to describe luxury lifestyle and travel that he is very popular for. He’s also the founder of the luxurious pocket square company: Pretentious Pocket. The New Yorker is popular for the hacks he uses to describe the highest luxuries in hotels and airports. His social networking sites regularly feature him making the most out of the loopholes of the hospitality industry to his advantage. He enjoys his status of being nearly equally loved and hated by basically everyone, and he doesn’t really care as long as you don’t forget him.
“My passport looks like Mike Tyson’s face, it has lots of ink on it!” he said, having traveled to a total of 72 countries in the past 10 years.Currently based in Southeast Asia, Lee, 33, has a bucket list of traveling across the whole world, and believes that the only thing he can learn about anything in the world isthrough the eyes of other people, and this is the reason that inspires him to travel. He believes it is also important that one travels alone, soas to know oneself better. To all his readers, Lee has a message, “Never be afraid to travel alone, or to start early, and never be afraid to use me as muse. So, learn from my mistakes, follow me online, and I am sure to inspire you to get out there and travel the world.”
