This weekend, within the framework of the Sierra de Gredos, the sixth has been celebrated Travel Blogger Meeting: more than one hundred travel bloggers approach the countryside to live a rural tourism experience. The organization, by Eddy Lara and Mª Victoria RodríguezIt was once again excellent and somewhat titanic.
The day on Friday began with what, in my opinion, was the best part: traveling conversation and debate. Unfortunately, we could not attend this exchange of opinions for labor issues. To get to the Parador de Gredos, we rent a car together with Esther de Missviajes, Luís de Xixerone, JD of Traveling, eating and loving, and Juan Antonio de We are travelers. It was a trip full of setbacks: we suffered from Iberia delays, we turned off the highway towards Segovia instead of Avila and ended up traveling a goat road through a private hunting ground for 40 minutes because the GPS said that was the shortest path. There were great moments deliriums tremens and finally, finally, we arrive at the hostel at one o'clock in the morning.
We promised each other very happy before leaving
Saturday's day began with the most interesting talk of TBM: the SEO workshop. For two hours, Mr. Muñoz, a native of Chiclana and responsible for the SEO company Marbella, was in charge of the difficult task of enlightening us and explaining techniques and tips to optimize our blogs. It was very interesting while useful, but if you could not attend the TBM, you can download the presentation on its website.
Behind the coffee break banana, thanks to Bananity, it was the turn of the traveling conversation about the rural tourism, in which we talked about the situation of the sector with Toprural.com and the Gredos Business Association.
At two o'clock we headed towards Navagredos campsite To have a pastor lunch. There we were waiting for a bag containing a sandwich of sausage from the area, a bottle of wine and some yolks. The food was held in a beautiful setting, but the penalty was that this weekend the temperature was very low and we had a little cold. After lunch we went to hug trees literally to make a communion with nature that I ended up clogging the car in the mud so I had to be rescued by a group of assistants. Thank you all for helping me out of the mud.

In the afternoon, it was the turn of the traveling experiences. Antonio Quinzán de Viajes y fotografia brought us his beautiful poetry read and made us known the wonders of the mayan world In addition to making it clear that we had to go back and tour Guatemala. Then, Xabier Villanueva de Como being a kiwi intimately told us about his six-month journey through the lush landscapes of New Zealand. Although without a doubt, the best was the talk by Carmen Pérez del Olmo from Tranjinando around the world, who managed to infect us his passion for india during a touching exhibition. It was an afternoon in which we took a cultural, landscape and human journey.
