Uncle James was a free spirit and travel pioneer who inspired Lawrence to travel even more. Lawrence lost his uncle to cancer and wanted to honor his memory. Lawrence is now traveling to every country in the world as well as the 325 regions noted in Travelers' Century Club to spread his ashes. Lawrence has braved the streets of Mogadishu and has been detained by North Korea while pursuing this quest. Lawrence is based in The Gambia where he moved with Uncle James in the 1990s.
