Q: How do you fund your travels?
A: During the school year, I save money by refraining from eating out often, buying new clothes, etc. I also apply for different travel grants and scholarships from my school. There are many private donors who love to give young people the opportunity to travel abroad, especially if we share our experiences.
Q: How did you drive that old van across the country?
A: It was not easy, but we learned that the bus has a mind of her own. We learned to drive at night, go slow, and stop frequently. Although it is not an ideal way to travel for most people, it worked just fine for us.
Q: How did you eat on the road?
A: We saved money and time by cooking inside the van on a propane powered camping stove.
