Story
Introduction

I've lived in Barcelona since 1988. I had a career as a minor rock star, met my wife, had kids and decided that I ought to take life a little more seriously, so turned my attention to English Language Teaching.

I hold the DELTA in English Teaching and my career included positions at Cambridge School, ESERP, the British Council and the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona.

In 2008, the publication of my first book, Going Native in Catalonia, coincided with serious illness and I decided to concentrate on writing and blogging.

My main presence on Internet is www.barcelona-travel-guide.info and its associated blog http://bcnblog.barcelona-travel-guide.info

I am currently working on a new book about Barcelona.

Bragging rights
I speak English (mother tongue) and Catalan and Spanish at near native level. I'm an expert on all things Catalan, particularly Barcelona and our wonderful football club. Visca el Barça!

El Born Centre Cultural commemorates the Siege of Barcelona in 1714. It's free in September and €6 after that!

Other than the wonderful CE Jupiter football club, it's quite difficult to get enthusiastic about La Verneda i La Pau ... Rambla del Prim's nice enough, though!

Doing some hard work on the website this week! New design and experimenting with top horizontal navigation ... I'd be extremely grateful for any constructive criticism!
