23: Eating authentic food with great drinks, teaching Canadian culture, practicing Spanish, meeting strangers, living in hostels, sleeping on trains & airports, learning transportation systems, exploring, touring; It was all a great experience, despite the rainy days, getting lost, and taking trains in wrong directions. Being completely immersed in the Spanish culture taught me a lot about the world and myself --reassuring my future plans. It was an experience of a life time. I'll be back soon, to conquer more.
