I'm a recent London exile living on the Suffolk coast. My professional background is working in renewable energy and sustainability as well as working within the arts for a number of years. I'm currently working as a copywriter.
I love London and relish my trips back there as a tourist now, rather than a Londoner. What I miss most is the glorious Herne Hill and Brockwell Park, with its amazing lido (excellent for a refreshing morning dip in the summer). I love walking in the hills, camping, festivals, and of course exploring new places both in the UK and beyond, especially now I've discovered Airbnb! I think it's a brilliant concept - and a great way for people to connect, meet other people from around the world and see great places, in a low cost and very efficient way. Like so many of the best ideas - it's simple and fun.
