After traveling around the world for 10 years, learning new culture and discovering beautiful landscape, I put down my suitcases in Barcelona for 5 years now. I am passionate about discovering and sharing unknown places, whatever it is natural, rural, urban or industrial areas. Graduate as a surveyor, I decided to run my own business producing illustrated maps. Through GONOMAD.eu, my desire is to make discover unusual territories and to promote a more sustainable way of doing tourism.
