Last week I spent several days in Girona, Spain, a charming, medieval town nestled at the base of the Pyrenees mountains. Initially, Tiffany and I were going to use it as a jump-off point to do some hiking in the mountains, but were so enchanted with the town itself we decided to stay. We hiked the foothills near Girona, walked along the outside wall that was built by the Romans, and wandered the streets of the old town.
While in Girona, we met Nathan – an art history guru and recovering banker who quit his job to travel the world. Nathan was going on nine months of travel and looked a bit scruffy, which he explained was because he had been semi-homeless earlier that week when his accommodations fell through last minute. Nathan is also a blogger, so we exchanged some blog talk over wine and fried plantains with avocado. (Random combination but seriously delicious.)
