- Attending the London 2012 Olympic Games Opening Ceremony.
After an amazing summer feeling unbelievably proud to be in London and the UK during the London 2012 Games, it is now time for me to embark on a long dreamed of adventure to help me fulfil 2 ambitions. Firstly, attempting to learn Spanish, particularly as languages have never been my strong point. Secondly, the opportunity to use some of the skills which I have gained during my professional experience as an Architect. And all this whilst travelling and exploring South America and Antarctica!!!
I will endeavour to keep this blog up to date as I travel, updating on my attempts to learn a language, describe the weird and wonderful people's and places I encounter along the way, as well as the general highs and lows that come hand-in-hand with adventures like this...
Any tips as I go would be great, as would any contacts in the places I will visit - less of an excuse to use English with other travellers, and always good to get insider knowledge of new places rather than relying on the tourist guides.
