Spotlight on strangers: Questions with...

10 Questions with Jonathan and Laura from Brussels

We currently live in a world where people walk right past each other. So I decided to write down 10 random questions and ask strangers to answer them. Just to bring the spotlight on “everyday people”. I was planning on doing this in the Netherlands but since I’m in Barcelona by myself I might as well begin here.
While chilling in the sun, I saw a couple in front of me and asked them if they would like to be the first people who I interview for my “10 Questions with …”  segmentThey agreed and were very friendly.

Here are the answers Jonathan & Laura gave to my questions:

    Jonathan: I hope I won’t miss the plane.
    Laura: I hope the plane won’t crash.
  2. Why did you take a trip to Barcelona?
    Jonathan & Laura: Because Barcelona is a beautiful place and the weather is hot which is good because the summer in Belgium wasn’t all that.
