I truly got to live like a local and meet some awesome people along the way.
If you’re on the fence about whether you should go — do it. I wasn’t sure what I was getting into, but wow, what a life changing experience. I loved that I could do my own thing or have a built in community — I did a bit of both. I truly got to live like a local and meet some awesome people along the way.Jill
