FAQ: Is South America safe?
Unless you live in a bubble, no where is truly ‘safe.’
FAQ: Do you speak Spanish?
Si. Mientras mi gramatica es asi asi tengo volcabulario grande. The language barrier is actually the least of my worries.
FAQ: What will the weather be like?
Summertime! But it will be colder in some places because of the altitude and it will be the rainy season in Bolivia.
FAQ: What if you get homesick?
I can call home. I can Skype. I can email. I can do a video hang 0ut on Google +. I can look forward to meeting up with those who are meeting me on the road. And if all else fails, I can tell myself that a bad day of travel is still probably better than a good day behind a desk…wishing I was traveling.
FAQ: What if you don’t like it?
If I don’t like a place, I can move on. If I really don’t like the idea of being on the road, I can always come home.
FAQ: What about your real life?
I don’t really understand this question and I have been asked it a few times.
It is my real life and I am living it. Maybe it seems like the road less traveled but we each have our own road.
FAQ: What about babies? You are getting up there in age.
FAQ: Do you even want kids?
Yes. And in fact, one of the shots, TDAP, is actually recommended before you get pregnant. So there, I’m already preparing my body so enough with those questions.
