Cristina Alonso holds a doctorate in environmental engineering, has worked as a researcher in the U.S. and taught math at a university in Spain. Now she's giving me some advice from her latest profession: "If you see a lot of locals, you know they're here for something," she says. "They're the ones who talk loudly... see what tapas they're eating."
The 44-year-old Ms. Alonso, a native Spaniard, has abandoned engineering in favor of tapas tourism—taking clients around tapas bars in Spain. A private tour costs €95 ($127) a person including food and wine. "You relate closely to people," she says about her job switch. "If you work as a researcher as I did, you see nothing."
