How to Manage Your Money Safely on the Road in Latin America

Thanks a lot to Transitions Abroad for publishing another of my articles, How to Manage Your Money Safely on the Road in Latin America.

This is one of my favorite articles I’ve ever written, and I believe that this advice holds for anyone, in any part of the world.

In fact, I’d like to print it out and pass it out to people I meet on the road. You can’t imagine how many times I’ve crossed a border with someone who was clueless about the exchange rate and was ready to just exchange money blindly, or was paying for all restaurant meals with a credit card. But then you go to the market with them and they haggle over a bag of fruit! It drives me nuts.

Thanks a lot for reading my blog. Click here for the article.
