The best spots
When asked what the top highlights of the trip were, Vought says, “It is incredibly hard to answer." Still, he checks off three spots.
Baja, Mexico: He says there are “endless remote beaches with good fishing and surfing,” and the camping there is ‘“unmatched.” Basically imagine California before the crowds.
Colombia: Vought acknowledges that Escobar's backyard is still “shrouded with a stigma of danger,” so tourists tend to shy away. But look again. “Both culturally and with its natural beauty this country gives you the most bang for your buck,” he says. “It is quite cheap right now: the least expensive country of our trip.”
Patagonia: This one is pretty straightforward, Vought says. “On the bucket list for most people, this is possibly the most beautiful place on the planet,” he says. “The longer you wait to go the more developed and less wild it will become. Go now.”
