Who Am I

I am one of those cool dudes who quit their jobs for travelling. I started travelling in May 2015 and have been to 34 countries to date. But I travel cheap. That's why the name "Mochilero." That is Spanish for "backpacker." However, I would like to believe that I have graduated to being an explorer. I am currently "bikepacking" through Latin America without a concrete plan.

I travel because I could not have allowed myself to live without getting to know the world I live in. Through my interactions with people I meet along the way, I am also trying to determine what makes people happy.

I think I am happy because I am living my innate dream of travelling through Latin America. To read my travel tales, musings about our world and life, and tips on how to travel cheap, I invite you to read my blog.
