I’ve been dreaming about taking a trip through Latin America too. How can I make this a reality?

As with most things, it comes down to time and money. I’ve addressed the issue of cost , over here and over there. It is more attainable than you might think. Once you’ve decided you are going to do this, look at every purchase in your life and turn it into a tank of gas, a roadside meal, or a stay in a hotel. Every time you unessarily spend your money instead of saving it for your dream, you’re getting farther away from it.

Time is tricky. Some people have been able to arrange sabaticals, but it seems unrealistic. If you work for an enlightened employers who understands the need for a prolonged break, great! Good luck though. Always remember that an employer will never treat you with the same level of loyalty you give them. In the end, you gotta quit your job, and figure it out when you get back.

Everything is going to be ok. Just trust me!
