When one time is not enough, you have got to do it again. ESL Aide Karla Mojica is hoping to return to Logrono, Spain next summer to have a new adventure.

“Be willing to experience many things because it is a once in a lifetime experience,” Mojica said.

She always wanted to travel. At first, she tried to get some of her friends to go with her, but, according to Mojica, “it didn’t work out, so she finally, gave up and decided to venture out on [her] own.”

To compensate for the lack of travelling companions, she enrolled herself into Spanish classes, not necessarily to learn Spanish but to make friends.

“If you are traveling by yourself, you will want to be shy and stay in your comfort zone, but don’t because other solo travelers are experiencing the same thing,” she said.

Even though she loves to travel because every block has something new to see, she still misses home.

“Texas forever. It has and will always be home,” Karla Mojica said.
