My name is Pilar and I would like to consider myself a mature woman who enjoys life and everything that London offers.
My job involves protecting children who are abused or neglected. Although is a hard job I love it because allows me to learn a lot from children from disadvantaged backgrounds.
In my previous life, I run my own business for 20 years importing stones, marble and granites from around the world which made me travel to very exotic locations.
But one day I decided I needed a change in my life and went back to university which led to have a degree in Social Work.
I like to travel and being to a few places, USA, Chile, Turkey, Brasil, Spain, Italy, Portugal, France. What I like the most when I travel is to be part of the community that I visit and mix with the locals.
I am originally from Spain but have lived in London for the past 28 years. I have quite a busy life and enjoy going out in London specially dancing.
My passion at the moment is Forro and Kizomba but I also dance salsa. London is a fantastic place for shows and independent cinemas which is what I like to do when I go out: to watch movies from everywhere in the world.
I like to cook and experiment to different cuisines such as Chinese, Caribbean, Chilean, Spanish, Italian so I can consider myself a good cook and host. I am also very privilege to have friends from different cultures who allow me to learn about people different from me.
And what I like the most is to learn about different cultures and to show my culture to people who come to stay in my house or I stay in theirs.
My kitchen has been witness to very good conversation and meals with my guests and I am proud to say that with some of them, I have become quite close friends.
My favourite place in the world is Paris, which I go as often as I can and I stay with friends that I have made through Airbnb.
You will also have the pleasure to be with my son Marcelo who lives with me. He is a very interesting young man who when he is not busy loves to speak and mix with our guests. If you are lucky he will even perform a magic card show for you. That is his passion and part time job.
I hope that with the information that I have provided you would like to stay with us and for us it will be a privilege to host you.
