Jean Miller Spoljaric: Cheering for the Bull

Jean Miller Spoljaric is an exciting new writer that GoNOMAD has been proud to introduce to our readers this year. Jean has a great time when she travels, and it really shows in her stories and her eye-popping photos.

Jean brings her unique brand of enthusiasm to the art of travel writing. You will find her at the bullring in Valencia, cheering for the bull, or sharing smiles with the people of the Enshi Valley in China and taking time to look at the world as they experience it.

Jean's first story was about Croatia, the favored summer getaway of the Romans, where she came upon some long-lost relatives. Her next story was from the Corrida in Valencia, where she spoke out against the cruelty of the blood sport.

Jean's second Valencia story about the festival of Las Fallas is a ripping good read and the photos are among the best we've ever featured on GoNOMAD. One, which we dubbed "The Smurf Inferno," shows the burning of the ninots at the end of the festival. This photo was included in our Top Ten Travel Photos of All Time.

Jean has also sent back top-notch travel features from Ireland and from Shanghai and Enshi in China, and we're looking forward to bringing you many more of her stories in the years to come.
