Born and raised in Barcelona, a city that I love. I was also raised in an international school in Barcelona, which I think is the reason why I feel very comfortable with people from other countries and cultures.
I also love traveling, and believe that people/locals you encounter when doing so can really make a difference in helping you enjoy your trip. I have actually spent one whole year of my life in a 'round the world' trip with my partner (from Sept. 2009 to Sept. 2010).
Sports (diving, running, kitesurfing and surf), eating out (especially SE Asian cuisine) and spending time with my family and friends are also activities that I try to do as much as possible. When not doing any of the above, I work as a consultant in a government owned investment agency trying to raise funds for investment projects of foreign companies. I'm also a property manager of apartments in the city Barcelona and villas in Ibiza.
This is a very comfortable apartment, it provides a very 'Barcelona' atmosphere, and is located in the city center (next to Sagrada Familia and Paseo de Gracia), but not where all the tourists and the crowds are. The apartment is surrounded by many markets and small shops around.
