Bronwyn's Story

A year abroad means a lot of things to a lot of people. It's an opportunity to try something new, to explore a new culture and practice speaking your language in a way that you can't simply in the classroom.  

I got to travel to Spain with my friends (including the beach in this photo where Game of Thrones was filmed), drink really, really good coffee and prove to Spanish school children that Wales is a country that exists in the UK as I got the opportunity to teach English in a Spanish and Basque secondary school.

I also managed to do things that I normally do at home. I joined a choir, my friends came to visit me and I read a lot of books.

It has inspired me to grow as a person, it's inspired me to document my experiences online on, and it's inspired me to work towards a future where I can pursue my passions.
