I arrived in Valencia, Spain last Tuesday after 2 week stint in the UK. I had been invited here back in March to speak at the Universidad Internacional Menéndez Pelayo to a tourism communication class on the subject of being a travel blogger. It was a fun experience and I was able to meet up with my friends Annie Bennett and Jimmy Pons. I also met Tom Hall, the digital editor at Lonely Planet for the first time.

The actual time I was speaking was quite short, so I found myself in Valencia for the better part of a week with nothing to do. The last two times I was here I was speaking at a conference and attending the Grand Prix of Europe. This time I blissfully found myself with nothing to do. I’ve been spending the last few days walking around the old city, eating at many of the cafes and kebob stands and just soaking up the nice autumn weather.
