I am a university educated Information Designer (otherwise known as a Graphic or Communication Designer) living and working in the Art Deco suburb of Killarney, Johannesburg for six years, where I have owned my own apartment since 2011. I am traveling with my gay best friend Coenie Sutton, who has been living with, and renting from me for the past year, and whom I have known for eight years. We are both non-smokers, are neat and are looking forward to our first time in London in August.
We know several people in London, who are in similar fields to us professionally, and they have all recommended Shoreditch and the surrounding suburbs (anything close to Barbican, Old Street, Angel, Chancery, Dalton and Bethnal Green tube stations) as an excellent base from which to access galleries, architecture, venues and restaurants that will interest us.
I have travelled to Lagos, Nairobi, Berlin, Amsterdam and Rotterdam, and Coenie has visited Namibia, Hamburg, Berlin and Frankfurt.
If you'd like any more information, please let me know, and we look forward to staying with you!
