 Where are you from, Miriam?
I am from Barcelona but I have also lived in Montreal and Dublin for four years.

They are very different cities to Barcelona, in Montreal there were temperatures of -20 degrees, so there were incredible underground cities. That weather was really cold and there is nothing better than the Mediterranean climate of Barcelona.

What do you do at the hotel?
I am the head of reception, a function that I manage together with Laya and our great team at Hotel Negresco Princes.
