***Watch the video first our you will ruin the climatic announcement***
Now Boarding! As of this time tomorrow, I’ll be back in Latin America and kicking off what will prove to be my most intense travel adventure yet!
I’ve been back in New York all summer, enjoying friends, family and wedding season, but now it’s time to get back on the road and travel deeper in a new country.
This next adventure has been a year in the making and I’m so happy that everything has come to fruition and I can finally announce the big news.
If you haven’t watched the announcement video, or didn’t understand something because you got so excited, let me explain the plan… [Deep Breath]
This evening, I will be flying to Guatemala City, Guatemala where I’ll catch a bus to Sololà, Guatemala to setup shop for the next 3 months.
How Kiva Works?
I’ve spent the last week in San Francisco training at the Kiva headquarters to prepare for the latest mission and I think I’m ready to get started. The mission of Kiva, their culture and their global impact is truly inspirational and I can’t wait to be a part of what they’re doing.
This adventure will put my Spanish ability to the test as I will be the only Kiva representative in the country and will be working with microfinance institutions and entrepreneurs to improve their businesses, entirely in Spanish! Time to improve my Spanish financial and business terms.
As usual, I’ll be keeping you all in the loop through the Tourist2Townie.com site (which will have a new look very soon) and I’ll also be hashing out all my thoughts and adventures on the Kiva Fellows Blog, so check that out.
What else would you like?
Anyway, lots of information but I’m super excited to jump outside my comfort zone again and travel deeper in Guatemala!
It should be interesting…
