Adrià comes from a town close to Barcelona in Spain. He got a degree in English Studies in the Catalan capital, and later on attended the University of California, San Diego in his school year abroad. There he specialised in Applied Linguistics and developed his love for travelling and surfing.
He visited Hamburg and fell in love with the city’s architecture and canals, and his passion for learning and teaching languages made him move here to learn German from scratch.
He enjoys wandering through Hamburg’s streets and alleyways, climb the highest churches and buildings to get the best of views, and diving into Hamburg Stadtpark’s pond in the hot days of summer.

After spending many years in Miami he decided to spend his graduate studies overseas living in both Hamburg and Essex. How he went from a high school linebacker to studying philosophy, role-playing to yoga, rap music to salsa and jeopardy to a walking Hamburg tour guide is a great question he’d be happy to answer in person. Ed’s love for German philosophy, dogs, simple living, and culture has allowed him to fall in love with Hamburg. A love he seeks to impart in every tour he gives.
