Get to know John
  • What do you do when you're not traveling?

    I read a lot. I write, I paint a little and I go go out with my friends. We sit together and play music and wherever I go, I take photographs.

  • What is your superpower?

    I get to look at things in a different way. Like from a science point of view.

  • What is your spirit vegetable?

    Maybe carrot. The cross-section looks like the pupil of the iris, so maybe carrots.

  • How do you make new friends?

    I just talk to them. Since I read a lot I know a lot of things and I'm interested in world history. So, wherever I go I might know something related to them.

  • What will be your part in the travel group?

    I would be the mechanic. And if there was any problem on the road, I can figure out a way to get out of that.

  • What or who will you miss during the 100 days?

    Almost every Saturday, if I'm the city I go there to sit peacefully and write something, I would miss that. And I would miss my family but I'm already missing them here far away from home.

  • I expect a friend to...

    Be him/herself around me. No airs, no barriers. To feel assured that I've got their backs.

  • I can't stand it when...

    A bus honks for longer than 4 seconds! (Horns should be short and sweet, more like a suggestion to the other guy, than a desperate order!)

  • I spend an unreasonable amount of money on...

    Tickets. (Last minute tickets are too expensive, don't you think?) and lots of books!
