Well, I am back for more fun! I have decided to spend the next 7 months in South America after finding love and having the continued desire to know more about South America and what it has to offer. Continuing my Spanish language learning and experiencing the life of living in a foreign country will likely have its challenges, but I believe it has been and will continue to be worth it in the end. I will post some pictures here, but the majority will be on Facebook (FOTOS as space on this blog may be an issue. Thank you for all of your continued support!!,
Join me on my mission to learn spanish and portuguese while exploring the many great cultures of the Americas. Currently living in Las Cruces, New Mexico, my journey will begin in Washington, D.C. followed by an amazing adventure to Los Angeles, California. Next, I will journey to Guatemala to begin my intensive language learning experience. Following two more semesters at New Mexico State University with a week back in Boise, Idaho, I will head down to Brazil to try my hand at Portuguese. Uruguay is next on the agenda, along with San Carlos de Bariloche, and Cordoba, Argentina with a rap up of my travels in Santiago, Chile. Join me for some fun!
