About Mr Chorizo (AKA Mr Daniel)

you probably don't want to be a digital nomad

I’m Mr Chorizo.

Okay, okay. That’s not my real name.

Let’s start again…

I’m Daniel.

I’ve written about travel and lifestyle for Esquire, Lonely Planet, and more. And several of my books are bestsellers here in Spain.

In the personal realm, I’m an American in Madrid.

I moved to Spain several years ago to get away from all the weirdness. One thing led to another, and now I’m an author, full-time blogger, and minor YouTube celebrity.

This website is mostly about the people, places, events and food in Madrid and Spain, the city I know and love.

You’ll find some photos, some information about Spain, and some random stuff about my glamorous expat lifestyle.

I’ve also got a couple of articles from some talented friends up here. If you want to write a guest post, just send me a message and I’ll get back to you.

If you’re offended by the colloquial use of the English language, you should probably go somewhere else – it’s all just my way of entertaining myself and taking a break from writing about English grammar, which (as you can imagine) isn’t always incredibly exciting.

More of my writing around the internet

I have a website at aprendemasingles.com that’s kind of a big deal. Also a big deal: madridingles.net – both of those help people learn English. Why two websites about English, you ask? Good question. I ask myself that almost every day.

Me and my writing have been featured on a few different places online…

And I’ve also written some best-selling books for people who want to learn English.

My books are on my Amazon Author Page, on iBooks and on my online store on Gumroad. I now have a new website about marketing called ¡Viva el Marketing!

Other than that, I love Spain. I love the food, the landscapes, the literature, the wine, and a lot of other things.

I’ve currently been living here for 13 years. If you want to know more, check out the story of my life.

I hope you enjoy your visit to my website.

P.S. I’m an affiliate of Amazon.com and Amazon.es, so if you buy something from them after clicking a link on this site, I’m going to get a little bit of money. The official Amazon disclosure statement says the following:

“Daniel is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to amazon.com or amazon.es.”

In any case, I’m not really getting paid much of anything for this.
