Hola, todos. I am excited to participate on this long, vast journey through Bolivia, however, I am a little nervous too. This is the first time I have ever left the country by myself, without family, so… it is going to be a new experience for me. Also, I have never been anywhere in South America, or Central America, apart from Mexico, and the climate and altitude will be a change. But there is a first for everything! I already know this trip is going to help me so much when it comes to Spanish. Speaking with Spanish families is completely different from learning in a classroom, and it will be so much more natural. I have been taking Spanish for 3 and a half years now, and I’ve been getting better but this adventure is going to take me to a whole new level. Anyways, I am excited to meet you all and learn about the culture of Bolivia through trekking, homestays and much more.
