Anna-Carin Nordin Meet the author Madrid
Anna-Carin Nordin is a true world-citizen: she's Swedish, but she was born and raised in Lausanne (Switzerland) and later moved to Barcelona. She's been living in Madrid since 2010, together with her husband, a true Madrilène. They also spend time in their second home in Miami, Florida. Anna-Carin made a career in the hospitality industry; she is the founder of The Hotel Anthropologist and she teaches Entrepreneurship in the Master in Hospitality & Tourism program at EADA (Barcelona). She is also the co-founder of www.notable-notebooks.com, which was born out of her love for aesthetics and design.
What Anna-Carin loves most about Madrid:
"The way the city combines tradition, elegance and innovation. And of course the Madrileños: the people of Madrid are welcoming and always up for a good time with friends and family. They are the reason why Madrid is such a vibrant city."
"The Madrileños are welcoming and always up for fun with friends and family."
Anna-Carin's perfect day in the city might look like this:
"My perfect day in Madrid would for sure be a Saturday. It would start with a nice brunch with Jordi, my husband, at the Ganz Café. Then we would go for a stroll in the Barrio de Las Letras neighbourhood: there are lots of independent shops, galleries and furniture there, where we always find inspiration for our home.
If you're a shopping addict like I am, you'll love to walk around in Madrid, there are shopping opportunities everywhere! Some of my favourite streets are Claudio Coello and the adjacent Calléjón de Puigcerdá.
