I'm a German who has lived in London for fifteen years. I love this city and think it's absolutely amazing what airbnb is making possible.
I have travelled lots over the years and always looked at alternatives of staying over in places. Whether it was a working farm in the south of Italy, a boat in France, a cattle farm in Australia, a tree house in Turkey or a good old-fashioned bed & breakfast in South West England - as a traveller I wanted to meet the locals and experience their place as they do as this is the best way to learn about other cultures. With today's technology and the ingenious airbnb platform this whole process has become so much easier and fun. It is wonderful how airbnb is helping ordinary people to open their doors to the curious traveller and I am very happy that I can contribute to this. I'm looking forward to welcoming you in this vibrant neighbourhood of this wonderful city.
