What do you like about traveling?
My favorite thing about traveling is to see new, exotic places, meet different kind of people and get to know other cultures and experience different things.

Why do you choose to travel by bus?
I choose to travel by bus cause its cheap and takes me to places where you couldn’t always get by plane/train. Also when choosing to travel by night bus I don’t have to pay for accommodation.

What’s your favorite bus related memory?
After traveling a month in Bolivia with very basic buses, the first bus trip in Peru was a very pleasant and positive experience with big, soft and comfortable benches, TV screens and warm meals served for the passengers.
