Because of my need to get back to school, I only got to spend ten weeks in Portugal. At first, I thought it was about spending time in Europe, cultural immersion, etc. but as I have had time to reflect, I see it differently now. I grew so much.
While I got to do some really cool things, the biggest compliment I can give is Zach and Jorge. I also had some Skype coaches too that changed my way of thinking for the better. I don't think I understood all of the time that we spent hiking, exploring, rock climbing, being on the beach, going to Lisbon, creating trips to Porto, making sushi, etc that really was about teaching me. I get it now and have so much love and appreciation for my Tatori!
The coaches are amazing. Portugal is amazing! The food is wonderful!
