It is so rare for people to do this, It's a long drive, and dare I say it, goes through countries some people are scared to go through. I know however I will be safe. People are inherently nice and I will meet so many. I love to meet and talk with new people, making friends is great and it really puts it into perspective coming from a town of a couple thousand people knowing that there is 7.5 billion people out there that i haven't met. That's what pushes me to do this, there are so many stories out there, I'm just one of them, I want to hear the rest.
Not having so much money I will have to survive a lot off of the kindness of strangers, Well, these strangers won't be strangers afterwards. So many bloggers just won't get into there personal finance but I will. I have exactly $5,100 for this trip and that will do. It took me half of a year washing dishes at a pub to save it up but it was all worth it. I have a 1996 Cavalier that I fixed up as well and that cheap little red car will be my ride the entire way.This is not an expensive trip in any sense of the word; you could do this too!
This venture isn't just a driving lesson. I'm undergoing this to learn so much and to share it with the world. I will be traveling from Canada through America, Mexico, Belize, Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Panama, Columbia, Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia, Paraguay, Brazil, Uruguay, and finally Argentina in that order; learning about their culture, history, environment, fashion, food, daily lives and so much more, no class could teach anyone these things.
Come follow me on this journey!
