My name is Asya.
I am a proud Ukrainian.
I have lived by three rivers: the Dnipro, the Mississippi and the Danube and their flows have greatly influenced my life.
I am happiest when I have a new road ahead of me.
My name is Frani.
I’m from Hungary.
I love England and all English Customs as I lived there some time.
I’m keen on doing sports like aerobics and trekking.
My name is Jared
I’m loud, I never stop talking and I love eating—yes, I’m American.
At the age of 22 I climbed Mount Everest. At 26 I spent two years in silence as a monk in a small temple in Nepal. Finally, at 28 I was the first person to achieve the record of having visited and drank in every bar in Asturias.
If you know me, then you’ll know that all of this is false. I’m just a normal guy with a good imagination.
My name is Rosa.
I was born in the beautiful, rainy and green island of Ireland.
I don’t consider myself a woman of hobbies but here are a few things I’d like to pick up in the near future: enter a cider pouring contest, become a shellfish collector and learn how to make a proper AsturianFabada.
My name is Lucas.
I’m going to need your help this year. Although I was born in the Netherlands I have, so far, moved house about 15 times in my life, called 13 different towns and cities my home as well as 6 different countries. Now, I’d like to stay put for a while so please make my stay in Gijón as enjoyable as possible. I’m sure my family would appreciate it.
My name is Sophie.
I’m from Olney, a small town in England, where the famous ‘Pancake Race’ originates from.
This race requires both speed and cookery skills, neither of which are my fortes, so I’m currently spending my spare time running and making pancakes as training for the next annual race. Wish me luck!
My name is Wojtek.
First thing about me – I’ll take words over numbers any day. Having said that – since I turned 18 I have lived under 16 addresses in 4 different countries, I have knitted over 20 scarves and I’ve bought at least double that, I have adopted 2 cats, I have studied 7 languages and I play 3 musical instruments daily – I’d like to increase the last 2 numbers soon, but I hope my current address will stay the same as long as Gijon will have me.
My name is Stacey.
I’m from Texas the land of cowboys and BBQ. I’m currently still getting use to the weather here so if you see me please give me a spare umbrella as I’m always forgetting mine.
My name is Gary.
I’m from London, where I tried my hand at being a showbiz journalist and video game reviewer before working for a charity helping people in debt. I even had a stint working for Hello! Magazine.
So, if you have any questions about classic games, Royal Families around the world or you ever overspend on a shopping trip to the UK, you know who to ask!
