Patience is not something I’m good at. It was killing me when I had to be patient because I didn’t have enough money to travel yet. I wanted to quit my job, figure out the money situation later, and just travel. Common sense eventually clicked in. If I wanted to travel long-term, I had to be prepared and learn to be patient.

I guess you could say I had reached a point in life where I just had a hunger for something new, for the open road, to actually see and experience things that had been in books and on computer screens for too long. As a musician in NYC, I had spent almost half a decade glued to the city and it’s industry – things had worked out well financially but I was unfulfilled and didnt know which way to turn.
It was a day I had been looking forward to since the start of my trip through Central America. Today I was heading to the north eastern region of El Salvador to visit one of the places most devastated by the Salvadoran civil war which ran from 1980 to 1992. It was to be the most emotive day I’ve experienced on the road.
