Name and profession?
J’lisa, accountant.

Where do you live?
I’m from South Africa but I’ve been living on the east coast of US for the past 5 months.

Where are you traveling?
I’m taking the bus from Los Angeles to Las Vegas.

What’s your favorite thing about traveling?
I think it opens your eyes to new things. I’ve been exposed to so many other cultures everywhere I’ve traveled.

Why do you like taking the bus?
I like the fact that I can travel stress free and not have to worry about traffic. It’s also much cheaper than driving or flying.

Tell us about your best bus experience?
I once almost missed my bus and my cab driver actually blocked the bus so I wouldn’t miss it. That was quite fun, I felt like I was in a movie for a moment

Bus traveling is cheaper, stress free, connects to other and you might end up having a ”movie” moment. How to resist?
