    Default Has anyone else travelled this side of the world?

    I have decided to teach english abroad and I am currently on my travels through South America to decide where exactly it is I want to teach it! Does anyone have any recommendations? I’m from Cardiff and strangely, people have told me there’s a big Welsh community (even with its own newspaper!) in Argentina! It’s not like I particularly want to be surrounded by home comforts (I certainly didn’t travel across the Atlantic for that!) but it does appeal to have a little familiarity, especially since I’m so far away. I have travelled alone before, through Spain and Europe (a kind of mini gap year using one of the flexible europases ) but I have never travelled so far and it does worry me a little. I am fluent in Spanish and took a class of twenty from Madrid who travelled to London to "aprender en Inglaterra" and so I have experience at least for the teaching side. I am hoping to go to a big city as I think it is easier to integrate there – or at least you have more choice with what you want to integrate yourself with! Has anyone else travelled this side of the world? Anyone who might have recommendations for me?

    Hi adalia!
    The Welsh community you're talking about in Argentina is Gaiman. Such a beautiful city! Believe me you won't regret coming Argentina!
    Have a look at this link for more info: http://www.patagonia-argentina.com/i...ryn/gaiman.htm

    Hope it helps!
