I was three days into my trip, in Bangkok. I’d jumped off the cliff, in my mind, and was chasing something impossible. I found myself sitting on a curb next to Gary Arndt of EverythingEverywhere.com eating street food and listening to him give me blogging tips. Jodi of Legal Nomads had introduced us and sat on the other side.
Some of the tips held up, some didn’t — the web moves at a fast pace. But that wasn’t the point. I was a new blogger, scared and unsure, finding my footing, and the world’s biggest travel blogger was eating meat on a stick next to me and sharing tips for my dream gig.
I can’t begin to tell you how inspiring that was.
So when he offered to run a post of mine, it kind of brought it all around. Full circle.
And I’m honored and grateful. This is a tale about a character I met in Guatemala. I hope you like it:
