    Travel blogger Elizabeth, of AdventuresInFluency.com, joins me to talk about the importance of learning (at least the basics of) the language before visiting another country. To date, she has learned 8 languages, and explains all the ways this has benefitted her personally, as well as the ways it helped her while traveling. For those who don't think they can learn a language, Elizabeth explains that you absolutely can — and exactly how to make learning it fun.

Helpful, motivational & fun listen!

Besides great tips on traveling solo, this podcast is super motivational, funny and well put together. It also clears up some common misconceptions about Mexico. Had never considered it as a travel destination but it is now definitely now on my list! I also checked out the TravelMexicoSolo.com website and there were colorful, gorgeous photos from many hidden gems I have never heard of. If you are planning a trip, be sure to check out the website. Shelley knows all the best spots you won’t want to miss!

Daydreaming

As of recent I keep finding myself daydreaming about Mexico.

I’ve seen my fair share of movies that always seem to leave me thinking of exploring what seems to be such a beautiful place.

After stumbling upon Shellys podcast, the desire to plan an adventurous vacation is becoming more of reality.

Maybe it also has to due with the way that Shelly’s voice reminds me of Winona Ryder.
