Today I had the pleasure to interview Gwendolyn from the USA who is another great example that digital nomads aren’t all in their 20’s and that it’s always possible to venture into a new life. Thanks for being an inspiration, Gwendolyn.

Esta vez tenemos otra entrevista en español. Hablé con Óscar Ortega, un buen amigo mío y marido de Luciana Pegoraro que fue mi primera entrevistada hace algunos meses. Óscar es dueño del blog UnIdiomaCadaVez que tiene un acente parecido a lo mío y se ha desarrolado en uno de los mejores puntos de contacto para hispanohablantes que están interesados en trabajar como profesor online de idiomas.

Hoy tengo el placer de presentarte a Estefy, una profesora de español de Argentina que vive en Valencia, España . Conocí a Estefy hace poco tiempo, primero solo por Facebook pero mientras tanto charlamos por Skype también.

I’m proud and thankful to present Luciana as my first interview partner here on Language Journeys.

Later on, we became friends because we both lived in Portugal and had the chance to see each other in real life,
