New Book: Bus Diaries by RL

Updated: Mar 15

People travel to seek happiness, inspiration, calmness away from the pace of work. There are so many reasons for one to go traveling. They went the distance, and their stories will take your imagination, its experience will urge you to follow, to travel by walking, hiking, biking, or sometimes hitchhiking.

(Literasia Creativa)

While some of you are fortunate enough to travel, perhaps others who haven't will seek these inspirations in books. And sometimes, reading a travel book can be as inspiring as the journey itself.

For six months in 2009, RL explored Latin America during a time when a major change shifted the region - previously governed by military juntas, dictatorships, and right-wingers, a majority of leftist government was elected democratically for the first time in history, including the first indigenous president. Before smartphones, Google Maps or Google Translate, RL chewed coca leaves with bus drivers in Bolivia, snorkeled in Galapagos, saw the Nazca Lines from the air, and a mummified, pumpkin-headed toddler in Peru, and traveled with a legal fake ID in Cuba. She traversed the continent mostly by land, making the most out of the region's extensive bus network whenever possible.
