About Me

28. Living in Barcelona. English teacher, wannabe-anthropologist, intermediate traveller and somewhat decent Spanish-speaker. Japanophile. Lifelong Man Utd fan, now part-time Espanyol fan. Dedicated foodie, Mario Kart enthusiast, and world-class taker-of-naps.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I want to meet up with people in Barcelona!! If you're here and want to see the REAL Barcelona and go for a few drinks, send me a message!

También tengo ganas de conocer a mas gente aquí en Barcelona, como quiero mejorar mi español (que me falta mucha practica). Te podría ayudar con el ingles si quisieras hacer un intercambio.

こんにちは、私 ジエムス です。はじめまして。私はイギリス人です、マンチェスター から来ました。お世話になります。My Japanese is VERY basic, but I am trying!! I'm going to spend 3-4 months travelling around Japan in 2018. I want to travel from the most northern point of Hokkaido all the way through Honshu and Kyushu and on to Okinawa.
