My best friend took a year off work and just traveled around South America with just a backpack and duffle bag of essentials. He spent about $5 to $10 a night at local hostels and food costs cheaper at local restaurants and shops. He spent roughly $500 a month on room and board. Aside from activities like bungee jumping or live sports events, most of the other activities costs little to nothing. Debating on saving up and just escape for a bit just like that.

Why are accountants and government officials saying health care workers should be mandated to get vaccines? A large percentage of health care workers do not want the vaccine and unfortunately once the vaccine is mandated this data will be gone, but as of today NY Healthcare workers are only about 30 percent vaccinated.
