> book a flight through a service to Bilbao Spain so I can learn Spanish
Literally live next to Mexico and could just learn Spanish here but have always been an outcast for being a Gringo (Far West Texas).
> Start thinking "Why not just go to a country you actually like if you are flying thousands of miles."
Spanish would be easiest because I have a little bit of experience with it and I only have 30 days travel. Learning this would benefit me in the US and allow me to practice after I return.
> Flight service lets me know booking failed and they are refunding
My free time is Dec-Jan, I am tempted to go a country I like, such as Austria, Poland, Lithuania, or Belarus. However, the weather would make doing anything out doors painful and there is no way I can learn any of those languages in 30 days.
> Realizes this is the most first world issue ever
Yeah, I am a bitch for even asking for your input, but as a mono-lingual brat I really want your wisdoms anons. What do you recommend, going to a place you feel "meh" towards because the weather will be acceptable and you could actually achieve your goal of learning the lang. or going somewhere you are passionate about that will be dead and closed just fail at learning anything?
