Well the day finally arrived that my boyfriend Rob and I hopped on a flight to Buenos Aires to start a crazy month long adventure! So you may be thinking…why the heck is Sam in Argentina for a whole month? Well that’s a great question!
After studying abroad on Semester at Sea, I realized that I want to see so much more of the world and how important it is to learn another language. I am not here with a program or for school, but we are creating our own unique adventure. I recently graduated from UConn in December and immediately reached the WHAT AM I DOING WITH MY LIFE stage. I started the job search…had some interviews for jobs that were good options but nothing I was dying to do. So I took a step back and decided to do something crazy. So here I am!
Now, I am not just gallivanting and living the high life in Buenos Aires. This isn’t a luxurious vacation, there is a purpose for being here. I will be taking intensive Spanish Lessons 5 days a week, learning the passionate tango, cook like a native, and most importantly be leaving my personal footprint or legacy in this country. In the process of living in Buenos Aires, I hope to open my eyes to my passions in life, which will help me see a bigger picture as to what I want my future and career to entail.
Today is only our first full day in this country and I can’t wait to share our experiences with you all. So make sure to stop back here to read about what is happening on this side of the world!
Oh I also want to point out that this beautiful website was created by Rob as an early birthday gift!
