Hey, <BR> <BR>I´m Therese & I´m Irish. <BR> <BR>I´m travelling to South America in October, going to Argentina, Chile, Bolivia, Peru, Ecuador & Brazil. I speak ok Spanish, but plan on doing a course when I start my travels (I wanna come home fluent in Spanish at least-we´ll see about Portuguese!) <BR> <BR>I´m a teacher, & am thinking of working in an international school from March (In Buenos Aires or Santiago perhaps?)-but haven´t started looking yet. <BR> <BR>The best thing about travelling, I think, is the people you meet rather than the things you see. I love meeting both travellers & locals alike. On this trip, I´ll be looking for ways to meet as many locals as possible-it´s the only way to really get to know the culture- not to mention perfect your language skills! <BR> <BR>Cultural sights & museums are fine, though not all the time! Mostly, I like to walk around, absorb the atmosphere-& I never say no to a good night out!
