Getting lost and falling in love with Buenos Aires Pamela Acosta

In conjunction with my school, I'm doing an international internship with Voluntario Global. I'm thrilled to be working with them

I wholeheartedly believe they're a genuine NGO that doesn't care for the attached strings of private donors; instead, they operate 100% with donations from volunteers and interns. Their core values are inspiring and, as if you couldn't already tell, I'm in love with them. What particularly draws me to Voluntario Global is the rarity of finding an organization that's so wholesome from top to bottom. That being said, I can't stress how welcoming the volunteer coordinators were once I arrived. They let me know the ins and outs of Buenos Aires and the location I'll be working at. I couldn't have asked for a better group of people to represent the organization. 

After the orientation with Voluntario Global, I set my sights on exploring a part of Buenos Aires I hadn't seen. At that point, I had only been in Buenos Aires for a day, the amount of exploring I had done was practically none, other than trying to find a quick lunch spot after my flight. The inner traveler in me told me not to give up the opportunity of absorbing Buenos Aires from a location I may not visit again. So, without a map or GPS, I ventured off to discover the culture of this beautiful country I've heard so much about but had never experienced. I think most of the beautiful and rewarding moments in life occur when we step out of our comfort zone. To exemplify, just take a look at these gorgeous photos of the city.     

Getting lost was beautiful, but, eventually, I still had to return to my hostel. Still, I couldn't forget how beautiful the streets were and how enticing practically every building looked. Was the city flirting with me? I think it left an imprint in my heart because on the second day, it was all I could think about. So, I approached my hostel friend that was on a similar boat as me: the Exploration Express. We quickly made plans to grab some lunch and visit a shopping center. I don't think I can express how well this date with the city went.
