Hailing from the sunny south of England, social scientist Joe arrived in 2014 in Barcelona as a student of nationalism studies at the city's Universitat Pompeu Fabra. It's the latest stop for a man who has already travelled on the Shinkansen in Japan, climbed volcanoes in Nicaragua and mastered Laotian cuisine (perhaps an exaggeration). Joe is driven by both a passion for his studies and thirst for knowledge - doing one of his tours will leave you entertained, but also informed. Speaker of several European languages, Joe is also a semi-professional futbol sala goalkeeper. After a tour with Joe you'll know about how and why history has shaped Barcelona to become the magnificent city it is today.
