Edward Clarke: Football Coaching and Playing in Argentina
Before embarking on this trip (my first solo) I was slightly hesitant as to what to expect, safety in South America and what I could really draw from it to possibly add to a CV. However, all these hesitations floated away! I got involved with a Sporting Opportunities project where I was coaching at famous football club in the city. Met some absolute top notch lads who gave me a cool Argentina experience, had a good support network if needed, and a tidy reference on the CV. Along with this I stayed at the famous Milhouse Hostel/nightclub… possibly the best I’ve been too, with many epic but distorted memories!
Overall message if you have any doubts about going travelling solo I wouldn’t worry to much about it. However, it is good to get involved with a program which gives you a bit more purpose and solid networks and Sporting Opportunities was ideal for this.
