Welcome to the Twenty-Something Traveler – the travel podcast dedicated entirely to the twenty-something in search of adventure!

This week, we take a more somber tone and examine the response behind the #Viajosola social media movement, which went viral after the deaths of two young Argentinian backpackers were made public.
