Meet David Wray. My dad! Not only is he my father, but an inspiring traveler. “Work hard, play hard” is a phrase I could relate to him. He has never let anything, even a busy and tiring career, get in the way of traveling. While I was growing up, he took my mom and I to Jamaica, through Mexico, and in my 7th grade year, he took me to Peru. Whether it was by nuture or nature, I obviously inherited the travel bug from him. He is still traveling whenever he can today, but mostly, by motorcycle.
I’ve traveled through Central America, Argentina and Ecuador on buses. I wouldn’t have traveled around any other way. While each region has differences in their bus systems, there are many things to be said about Latin American bus travel as a whole. Here is my comprehensive round-up for making your Latin American travel plans a reality on a backpacker’s budget.
A city with the best of both worlds. Latin American vibrancy and chaos, mixed with European refinement and class. Argentina is an enchanting mixture of its own, and this characteristic is what made me fall in love with it.
