Hi there! My name is Joan and I am from Spain. I grew up in a beautiful coastal village called Roses, in Catalonia province. When I started University I moved to Barcelona and lived there for about 8 years. I used to work in marketing, but not anymore. I belonged to the corporate world for four entire years, but then I decided to quit and now I just travel.
I spent the last 2 years of my corporate life living in Dubai and that’s one of the best things I’ve ever done in my life. Why? Living in the Middle East has changed me forever. The region has so much to teach you. It’s the cradle of civilization and today it’s one of the most influential regions in the world. I´ve traveled to practically every Middle Eastern country. Its high level of multiculturalism is not comparable to anywhere else, and since then, I see the world from a different perspective. I’m not the same person anymore, and if hadn’t lived there, Against the Compass wouldn’t have been created.
