I was born and educated in Wales and worked (I still do some consulting) as a senior exec in the hotel and hospitality industry. Lucky to have travelled the world with my job but never had the funds to open my own little place. I am a real people person and nothing makes me happier than a good old belly laugh. Recently discovered Yoga and Pilates - started a sewing course for garment making and also enrolled for an upholstery course in Spring. My Life Motto would be "Treat people as you would wish to be treated".
Both of us have lived in London for 30 years so our knowledge is extensive and we are happy to share suggestions for your visit.
We both enjoy good food and wine, art & culture, film and socialising. We have a little house in Italy and this has become a little project for us.
Fav TV - Breaking Bad, House of Cards, The Good Wife, The Bridge, Borgen, The Killing, The Wire. Fav Food - mainly Italian and Thai.
