Jose is 27 years old and enjoys traveling solo. He earned his degree in culinary arts, hence his reason for pursuing a culinary arts internship abroad.Interviewed on - 18 February 2015
I wanted to expand my horizons.
It was the cheapest program.
Authentic experience, not massive tourism.
I was surrounded by local people.
Orientation, guidance, and email contact from the beginning to the end.
I was worried before going because it was my first experience abroad but then when I got there everything was so fine…
Cooking, cooking, and cooking.
To put into practice what I learned at the hotel.
Flexibility and a dictionary (not many people speak English here).
A shared apartment with all facilities, with the exception of a dryer.
I have more confidence on my own and am more tolerant to changes. I loved the way Spanish people improvise.
In the culinary arts industry, hopefully at Marriott.
I would say Instituto Hemingway, as they have many low-cost programs for long stay periods in that field.
