About Me


As my profile says, I'm Jonny, from just outside the city of Derry in the North of Ireland. I've recently moved to Madrid to teach English, hopefully, once I get settled I can start to host travelers who are passing through. I'd also like to use this site to get to know people who are also living in Madrid.


"Freedom, morality, and the human dignity of the individual consists precisely in this; that he does good not because he is forced to do so, but because he freely conceives it, wants it, and loves it." - Mikhail Bakunin


My main interests are music (mostly punk, metal, ska but loads of other genres too), reading (both fiction and non-fiction. I have a huge love of history, my current favourite topic is The Spanish Civil War and the anarchist movement in Spain. In my spare time i like going to the pub, playing bass and going to gigs and I also dabble in a bit of photography once in a while.
