I went on a working abroad holiday with Stepabroad to Chile. Initially I was supposed to stay a full 4 months on the island of Chiloé. While the experience on the island was incredible, I was itching for a change.
Stepabroad put everything in motion for me to be able to head on out to Santiago (with a quick little break in Argentina and Uruguay which was delightful) and get a change of pace. I only had to voice out my impression and they took care of everything. Working in Santiago was better than I could've imagined. The city is vibrant, there is always something to do and I was surrounded by plenty of other travelers.
I really felt like Stepabroad cared about me and how I felt while I was halfway across the world. No question was left unanswered and I really did feel like I could voice my thoughts. They took out a huge stress for me and it really helped me enjoy my time in Santiago to the fullest. I worked in a lovely hostel in the center of Santiago. I had two days off per week and I spent that time exploring the city. Working at a hostel also meant free tours to a couple of cool places that I would've never had an opportunity to visit had it not been for this program.
Plus, I get another neat experience on my résumé!
