        I  have followed your travel stories and they are truly inspiring to live free. You already are living this experience and know all the nuggets to get by (I remember one of your posts on how you saved $1000 or so on a bus ticket) and it would be phenomenal to share these tips with people who would love to travel but are afraid of the financial cost
