One morning, I left my apartment in Seville, Spain with no fixed time limit, no reservations, and only a loose idea of an itinerary. My goal was to see if I could still have the kind of spontaneous adventures I'd enjoyed in my youth.

"Warmth, wisdom, and humor ... I loved this book and laughed out loud on more than a few occasions." Susan Pohlman, author, Halfway to Each Other.
