Ideal conversation exchange partner

I think my perfect tandem partner would be someone who is flexible but still can talk fairly regularly. My ideal partner would also give involved responses to open-ended questions.

My learning goals

I would like to become as close to fluent as possible. In terms of motivation, I love to travel and most of the places that I want to travel to speak French or Spanish. Therefore, I want to learn those languages well so I can communicate while I travel.
