I'm a 30 year old professional, burnt out and fed up with my lack of career/job prospects in London at the moment.
I have a real unsatisfied wanderlust and last year quit a full time job to go studying Spanish in Salamanca.
I had the best 6 weeks of my life, but funds ran out fast and I came back with the plan to find more work and save for the next opportunity to go abroad.
It's my dream to live and work in Spain, France and South America.
I have no money at all, or even savings, and only a part-time call centre job paying £60 a week.
I was just offered a business internship in Spain, it would be 4 months, unpaid but expenses/accommodation is included. I've not decided whether to go or not because I am worried about running out of money.
I only have £200 left in the bank and a credit card but if I used that it would incur some debts I am not even sure I could meet the minimum payment after my bills come out at the end of the month. I have spent my 20's in a range of jobs but only recently found a love for travel, learning Spanish and wanting to work abroad, ideally helping others and travel writing.
I'm back living with parents, very unhappy and just want to get away. The internships I've seen look ok but I would struggle with no pay. I'd also love to do some volunteering in South America, but I can't afford to get there yet. In London if I stay here I only have the telesales job which is a really painful way to earn very little money.
I've considered teaching English for better paid work but I am a lousy teacher. Please advise, I am losing all hope
