The first was driving from Europe through many parts of Africa. Years later, with their young son, they embarked on an equally ambitious plan: driving from the arctic circle deep into South America. This time however, there were three passengers. In this Epic Education Interview, Jennifer and I talk about many nuts-and-bolts aspects of overland travel in South America with kids, including money management, education, working and parenting on the road, and readjusting to life once the trip is over.
