"...the moment I landed in Buenos Aires, I realised that I had been somewhat cocky about my abilities."
A disheartening start
Regaining confidence in Bolivia
There, I got more than I bargained for. I instantly fell in love with the city and the people. My amazing Spanish teacher not only taught me an insane amount of Spanish and helped me get over my fears, but she also taught me a lot about the Bolivian culture. Things I would never have learnt without her. This incredible woman is someone I now consider a friend. It was an unforgettable experience and after 5 weeks of classes I felt I was ready to move on. With a little sadness and a lot of excitement I said goodbye to a place that will forever hold a piece of my heart.
