Check out this inspiring video from Argentina by my friend Gareth of Tourist2Townie.com.
We met earlier this year in Medellin, where his enthusiasm for travel and blogging were obvious.
Gareth is a man with a vision, and you'll see that come out in the video. He prefers to see the world at a much slower pace than your average backpacker, thus his motto to “travel deeper.”
In return for visiting fewer places per year, he's rewarded with getting to know the countries and cultures he does experience on a more intimate level.
He's going to arrive in Ecuador just as I'm leaving, but I'm hopeful we'll run into each other in South American again sometime soon.
