Staying In Spain in March

I'm in Tenerife, Spain with the entire Conversio team. Obligatory working from a hammock photo above.:)

Conversio

The whole team works remotely and is spread out from California to the UK to South Africa, but every six months, we all go to a new location and spend some time in person. For March we went to Tenerife, Spain. (What part of the world we'll go to in November for our next trip is still being decided)

Getting the chance to see a small bit of Spain has been amazing. It's my first time here. I've gotten to swim, snorkel, hike, and explore new places. Being so far from home shakes me awake to how big the world is and how many different kinds of cultures there are. Being in Spain gives me a newfound fascination with its history. At the same time, being outside of the U.S. makes me so thankful I was born in America because of our language. English is the most popular language in the world. I've been in Spain and briefly in Amsterdam in the last few weeks, and in both places (and so many others) everyone speaks English. This is a huge benefit to me as it's just generally easier to get around when my language is everywhere, yet before I didn't realize this as much and didn't have the appreciation I do now.
