My all-time favorite purchase is my Scottevest – travel vest. I always felt secure that our passports and money were safe on my body. The vest was comfortable enough to wear on the hottest day or on a long bus trip. It made border crossings a piece of cake with all my identity documents tucked neatly in an internal pocket of my vest. Check Them Out.

Description of This Travel Series
My partner, Adina, and I left our San Francisco lives behind and for four months hit the backpacker trail through South and Central America, Belize, Cancun, Mexico and Havana, Cuba. We were budget travelers of a certain age, who started at the bottom of a continent with a mission to experience as much of the richness of the cultures of this region as possible. We figured it out as we went along, and journeyed through a continent, explored the lives of its people, and its magnificent beauty. You can follow our adventure and plan your own through this travel series.
