EER028: The Tupy family talks Peru family travel

Interested in Peru family travel? Listen up. To say Matt and Michelle Tupy love travel and adventure would be quite an understatement. The couple met in China back in 2004, and have basically been on the move ever since.

Peru Family Travel

The Tupy family now consists of four members, and their latest trip will be an amazing accomplishment once it’s completed: driving overland from South America all the way to Niagara Falls, Canada in Volkswagen camper van from the 1980s. I ask them about their origins as a traveling family, and how they make a living. Listen in as we discuss education, Youtube celebrities, the search for a good mechanic, and the joys of Peru family travel.
