Yesterday we had force 7-9 winds and some large waves coming in to Playa de la Mar Bella in Barcelona. Lots of surfers and bodyboarders were out, and the light was beautiful at about 4pm in the afternoon.

OK, here's part 2. These were taken in Cornwall, England. If you ever go to England, I really recommend you make the effort to travel to this county. As you can see, it's incredibly beautiful.

Is there somewhere you REALLY want to visit in your life?

Here's an Advanced English Vocabulary class we made during the Summer in Barcelona. Katie and I discuss "Wonders of the World" whilst we sit on a hill with views of the whole city...

These are some photos I took a few weeks ago whilst on holiday with my family in Devon, England. It's a county in the South West of England and a very beautiful area!

I went on a 7 days tour. It was really nice. I visited Bristol, Torquay, Exeter, Lizard Point, St. Ives, Redruth, Tintagegel with the ruins of king Arthur's castle, the nice village of Clovelly and Barnstaple. They were really fantastic places, different from the villages of my country.

This place was SPECTACULAR. It's in Catalunya, and is called something like "Reserva Natural de Mont Rebei". One of the best walks I have had in Spain/Catalunya. Wonderful!

If you'd like to learn some very common colloquial English expressions, download our free audio class about "Danger". Test yourself - try and guess the expressions before I do!

Good luck! :-)

Story
Tagline
Director at Zapp! English / Ingles.fm
Introduction
I spend my time between Barcelona, Oxford, and Thailand, working as a freelance web consultant, and on the Zapp! English websites. I also co-develop multi-media e-learning ESL listening materials using real English conversations.

I would describe myself as a traveller, anthropologist, web specialist & English teacher. I'm British, grew up near Oxford in the UK and have lived abroad in various countries in the last 10 years including Australia (Sydney), Thailand (Chiang Mai & Mae Sot) and Spain (Barcelona).

I have 15 years' experience working as a web developer, SEO/Analytics consultant and internet marketing manager, and I have also founded an NGO in Thailand working with refugees from Burma.

You can find out quite a lot more about me by listening to our English podcasts :-)

I also love photography, and you can see some of my photos of Thailand and Latin America here
