About the Host, David
Hi! My name is David and I was born in Barcelona 44 years ago. I like to travel and try to go out to see the world when I have vacations.
I work as technical arquitect, specialized on building restoration. My office and home is in the Raval neighbourhood. I live with my partner Eli (she's on the profile picture with me). If someone wants to know places to eat, drink, shopping in Barcelona only have to ask me. I like my city and I like to transmit my enthusiasm to others.
