About the Author:

Wayne Smits is a self-confessed wanderer whose interest in travel put him on the road at an early age. He has traveled all over the world, most commonly in Latin America, and he ran a successful import-export company for several years. Today, when he's not writing or traveling, he lectures on travel safety and security for such organizations as the International Youth Hostel Association.
