I started interviewing strangers when I was in Barcelona in the summer of 2012 because I thought people should give more attention to the person sitting next to them instead of reading gossip magazines about celebrities.

When I was in Barcelona there was a restaurant/pizzeria close to where I was staying. It’s called Verona, with delicious food and very affordable.

Here are his answers to my 10 questions: Before I go through my usual list, I want to ask you… Continue reading 10 Questions with Ricard from Barcelona
We currently live in a world where people walk right past each other. So I decided to write down 10 random questions and ask strangers to answer them. Just to bring the spotlight on “everyday people”. I was planning on doing this in the Netherlands but since I’m in Barcelona by myself I might as well… Continue reading 10 Questions with Jonathan and Laura from Brussels
