July 2017 Trover Travel Scholarship

We are inspired every day by the beautiful discoveries you share with us. To honor the vibrancy and value that each of you brings to Trover, we created the $500 Trover Travel Scholarship. Each month, we award it to one traveler who has particularly inspired us with their photos and stories.

This month, we’re thrilled to award the Trover Travel Scholarship to Jessica Bowler!

Who is Jessica Bowler? She’s a freelance writer and translator based in Barcelona. Originally planning to visit Spain for 6 weeks, Jessica has called it home for 6 years and counting! Be sure to follow Jessica on Trover where she shares delightful finds and detailed travel tidbits from Barcelona and beyond.

Photo of Jessica BowlerFor anyone planning a trip to Spain, Jessica suggests visiting multiple cities & regions to enjoy the distinct vibe and personality each has to offer, noting Barcelona is “worlds apart from the cities in the south of Spain…”

Jessica also recommends you “sit back and enjoy the relaxed pace of Spanish life… The sights are wonderful, of course, but take time to have a long lunch or a stroll with no particular destination in mind, and you’ll get a taste of what makes the country such a lovely place to live.”

Jessica’s recent explorations include Italy and the UK. Where to next for Jessica? “I hope it’s somewhere with a beach!” Find inspiration & tips for your own adventures on Jessica’s blog Barcelona Blonde. You can also say “Hola!” to Jessica on Instagram, Facebook & Twitter.
