Where did you travel?

I traveled to Lagos (Portugal), Morocco and Cádiz. I absolutely loved Lagos.

I loved the meals I had with my host family and the small trips I would make with my friends. My Señora always took good care of me and made tons of Spanish food.

There is no doubt that my medical internship allowed me to develop rapport with various doctors helping me confirm my career path.
