What’s Layer Culture about?
It’s been over ten years now since two of my best friends passed away.
Moments after, I boarded a flight to Rio de Janeiro.
Contrary to what I’d heard about Latin America, I went anyway.
You’ll probably want to read my story to learn more about that.
Layer Culture Origins
Weeks later, I arrived home from Brazil with reverse culture shock.
I knew I had to make a change in my life. All I was doing, was chasing money, trying to gain (financially) by side-hustling 24 / 7 / 365.
Layer Culture started with some money in the bank; $2000 to be precise, but it quickly flew out of my pocket after arriving in Costa Rica.
Sadly for me, I was scammed (online) and lost my life savings. But the funds I had kept behind for myself, I decided to invest in travel.
I made this short video right after arriving back in South America:
In your case, you may be interested in traveling to Latin America just like I was. Or maybe, you’re looking for some life inspiration.
Maybe you feel slumped by the status quo in your own country? Or, need an excuse to escape? Why not consider Latin America?
Picture how you’d look surfing down a volcano in Nicaragua.
If you’re new to the site, I might suggest you check my guides:
I promise you that if you invest time in this site, you’ll learn more about my lifelong dedication to learning as much as possible through connecting with people, places, and objects in Latin America.
Soon I’ll have a guide for every country in Latin America.
I’m currently writing this from Salvador Bahia in Brazil and my current goal is to visit more countries in both Central and South America.
A Typical Layer Culture thought
If you’re reading this right now… Something tells me you’re young, full of wonder, courageous and ready for some kind of wild adventure.
For you, in this case, it could be…
- Traveling to a country in Latin America.
- Learning a new language like Spanish.
- Creating a passion project while you travel.
- Taking this opportunity to work on you.
Maybe you’re sick of competing with society (including friends and family you don’t like), or maybe you want to do something for yourself?
Something that you can look back on and think – I’m so glad I did that for myself. Something not motivated solely by material gain.
Or, even other trivial items that don’t solve the question that keeps popping up every-time somethings not going your way.
No matter where you are in the world. Ideally, you’d want to move outside your comfort zone and GROW.
I wanted to go out into the world and make some kind of impact with my life’s work. Adding more and more value to the human experience.
I learned how to use the internet to sustain my cultural travels and therefore fund my travel lifestyle. The internet gives me freedom.
Over the years I have developed my own style.
Cultural Travel consists of a few core beliefs…
- Eating like a local and staying healthy
- Making new connections (the right type of connections)
- Staying with local families (or trading a skill)
- Learning the local language (in my case it was Spanish)
Why not read my Latin Explorer Bible which explains more about how I travel. I update it regularly and you can receive all future updates?
Is it drawing closer to your time to make a difference in your life and the lives of others? I’ve found travel as a great tool to achieve this.
You’ll find me on Instagram, send me a message there, or…
