Jim Kitchen knows travel.
The 57-year-old entrepreneur and investor was the only one to visit all 193 UN-sanctioned nations on the planet, on the same trip as comedian Pete Davidson made a private Blue Origin rocket. He states that he was part of the crew. Initially it was scheduled to fly in March.
In addition to its 62-mile milestone, Kitchen estimates that American Airlines has recorded at least 3 million miles in the air from 7 to 10 million miles. But his favorite airline is Emirates. “It’s a business class suite with wooden panels, a huge video screen, and a great bed.

Having worked in various ways in the travel industry, including the establishment (and sales) of the group tour company SBT, he is now an angel investor and professor focused on entrepreneurship at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. I am serving. He lives with his wife Susan. Here are some tips for traveling with Globetrotter.
