Favorite thing about going abroad?

This is going to sound very cookie-cutter but I am most excited and most nervous to improve my Spanish. I went to visit a patient last week (part of my work this summer) and we ended up speaking Spanish to each other. I have been taking Spanish since the third grade and yet I couldn't articulate my curiosity about her past life in El Salvador or ask about her family that was in town. However, when I could communicate with her exactly how I intended, it felt like a barrier broke between us and I cannot wait to break those barriers with other people on my travels and when I return.
