I live in Hackney, East London, UK with my husband Mike, and we love it there. I work for an amazing contemporary dance company, Candoco Dance Company, and Mike is a musician. We're a friendly, open minded, tidy and considerate couple with a love of travel, great food, exploration, music and simple pleasures. Some of my favourite things: Records, the film 'If...', live music, supermarkets in different countries, good beer, 'The Grapes of Wrath', cava, David Bowie, wild swimming. We are travelling across North America this coming fall on what we hope to be a cultural and musical pilgrimage . We'll be using airbnb for much of our trip as we love the opportunity it allows for experiencing a city, town or village more as a local than a tourist, meeting new people and getting new perspectives.
