Just over a year ago, I launched La Tortuga Viajera. Shortly thereafter, I had the honor of joining an esteemed group of bloggers featured on Lonely Planet. It’s been quite a experience – since then, I’ve traveled to Luxembourg, France, Denmark, Sweden, Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia and Thailand…not to mention all over Spain…and back to the US three times with trips to Washington, Nevada and California. Oh yeah, and I got married in the Spanish countryside.

This week happens to mark another exciting development in my journey as a travel blogger – the launch of the free photo ebook “Around the World with 40 Lonely Planet Bloggers.” Yep, I said FREE. In this book, 40 of us Lonely Planet travel bloggers have banded together to share images from our global adventures.

“So who are these travel bloggers?” You may ask. Matthew Cashmore, former Innovation Ecosystem Manager at Lonely Planet, explains: “The concept was simple – get the best 10% of travel bloggers out there to share their thoughts and ideas…shining a light on the very best travel writing and photography on the planet.”

Our travels range from solo to couples to family travel, road trips, budget travel, expat living, voluntourism and even perpetually traveling digital nomads. Via our ebook, we hope to take you along for the wild ride – I do hope you will enjoy it! To view or download the book, just click here or on any of the previous links. And please don’t be shy about sharing it with others!

Thank you all for coming on the journey with me!

*A special thanks to Todd over at Todd’s Wanderings for rallying all of us together to make this project happen!

    Enhorabuena!! What a great opportunity!

    Por cierto…I’m thinking of moving to Madrid if my contract isn’t renewed and this cold war with my nov lasts much longer. May be asking for tips on looking for work there!

    I hope everything’s OK! Sevilla is great of course, but Madrid might be a nice change of pace :). If you need anything, I’m here to help!
