Why I'm Breaking Away

You know that saying, "Today is the first day of the rest of your life"?

Just days after an amazing farewell party from my colleagues and friends from Good Jobs New York (http://www.goodjobsny.org/newsroom/signing-after-13-years-bettina-damiani-steps-down-project-director-good-jobs-new-york), I hit the road. It wasn't easy leaving a job that I love, much less one that I was thankful to have for over a dozen years.

But for as long as I can remember I have wanted to take a trip that would take me to another country for months and allow me to immerse myself and learn its language. After saving my pennies and preparing best I could, it seemed like the spring of 2014 would be the perfect time to start. The next seven months will reconnect me with family and friends, send me on an adventure that will help me make new friends and to study and speak Spanish in Central America. "Breaking Away in 2014" will document all the adventures (mostly good, but I'll share the missteps, too) that await me and share them with you. Enjoy the ride!
