This guest post is written by Lillie Marshall who blogs at AroundTheWorldL.com. We traveled together for about a week in the Valencia Region of Spain in April, 2010. All photos used here were taken by Lillie. If you are interested in writing a guest post, please read my guest posting guidelines.
As I stared at the sixth course of our third five-star dinner in Spain, I realized: this was a long, long way from my past life as a schoolteacher!
My name is Lillie, and for six years I was a high school English teacher in the Boston Public Schools, saving money and scheming future adventures. In August of 2009, I finally flew out of Boston to embrace the world! Since then I have had nine glorious months voyaging through Asia, West Africa, and finally Europe.
From the very day I started my own travel blog in July, I knew full well that the world’s number one travel blogger is Gary Arndt of Everything Everywhere. When I learned a few weeks ago that Gary would be in Spain the same time I was, I sent an email asking if I could meet up with him. When Gary agreed, I hopped aboard a nine-hour train from Andalusia to Valencia to meet him in person.
“So basically you’re a stalker,” replied a woman when I told her this story.
