Rosalind Bond


Originally from Oxfordshire, UK, Rosie studied French and Spanish at the University of Manchester, which gave her the opportunity to live abroad, first in Paris and then in Buenos Aires. She loved the experience so much that when she finished her degree she decided to move again, this time to Barcelona. She loves exploring the city and discovering hidden places, something writing for Metropolitan helps her to do. Other than writing, she likes travelling, reading and her latest hobby, swing dancing.

There’s no shortage of culture or history in this charming French town. more
