The Time Has Come - Leaving Barcelona

By: Amanda Torres

I’ve been living abroad for 10 months now and by the time I head home I will have visited 15 new countries on this journey. I left San Francisco in August; I quit my amazing full-time job to fulfill this desire I had of living abroad. I decided to make Barcelona my home base and took the in-class TEFL course with ITA. I even almost dropped out a few weeks before, because I had second thoughts about teaching English, but I am so happy I stuck with it. Since my course ended in September, I’ve been teaching English online and traveling the world!

Armed with a Bachelor’s degree and a desire to travel, I set out after graduation from college, along with my two best friends, to teach, live, and experience Barcelona.
