Guesting:

Both John and I are expats who have been living in Brighton/Hove. We have loved it there. John hails from New Zealand via Holland, so speaks Dutch and I hail from Vancouver, Canada and speak German and a little French. We are currently traveling the world for a year and our first 5 months are in North America, then a few months in Austral Asia and we end in Asia. Where we head back to the UK.

John has worked as an environmental scientist for an international non-profit organisation (thus traveled a lot) and I am a performer, performing a lot in Brighton/Hove and all over the UK & other parts of the world. This kind of background gives us an excellent idea of understanding traveling and staying at others homes. Also, having been air BnB hosts, we know what it's like to have guests in our home and have stayed in others homes - house sitting & as a guest. We, always, try to treat others as we would like to be treated.

Both John and I have experience of hospitality, John has worked in Youth Hostels - running them and I have worked in restaurant management.

Walking, live entertainment, traveling and eating at good restaurants are some of the things John and I can't do without, as well as going to the local wineries.

Thailand, Canada, New Zealand and Europe are favourite places to travel, plus we love murder mystery books and going to the movies. John is a keen reviewer on Trip Advisor and I have been reviewed on Trip Advisor for my singing work at the Little Bay Restaurant in Brighton. We both are doing travel blogs, so ask us about them and we'll be happy to send you a link to them or our (website hidden) page about them. Debbie is, also, doing a monthly video blog, if you prefer the visual!

Motto: Live life to the fullest and be happy!

Both John and I are expats living in Brighton/Hove. We love it here and know what it's like to be abroad and there's nothing like local knowledge. John hails from New Zealand via Holland, so speaks Dutch and I hail from Vancouver, Canada and speak German and a little French.

John works as an environmental scientist for an international non-profit organisation (thus travels a lot) and I am a performer, performing a lot in Brighton/Hove and all over the UK. This kind of background gives us an excellent idea of understanding traveling and what it's like when you want to know what to do in the local area that's fun and a good place to eat.

Both John and I have experience of hospitality, John has worked in Youth Hostels - running them and I have worked in restaurant management. We like to make sure anyone who comes to stay is well informed of what they may be interested in and how to find it easily and quickly. Plus the easiest ways to get around not only Brighton/Hove, but London (which we are only a short train ride to) or the local county of Sussex.

Walking, traveling and eating at good restaurants are some of the things John and I can't do without, as well as going to the local events in and around Brighton/Hove.

Thailand, Canada, New Zealand and Europe are favourite places to travel, plus we love murder mystery books, going to the movies, seeing live entertainment and eating out. John is a keen reviewer on Trip Advisor and I have been reviewed on Trip Advisor for my singing work at the Little Bay Restaurant in Brighton (a great place to go out for a unique evening where you sit in little bays - theatre like boxes - and have a meal with a singer who sings to you).
