I have lived in London on and off for 10 years now and have proudly owned my beautiful flat for 3.
Although London is a slightly manic place at first I have managed to hunt out a nice little collection of favorite bars/restaurants/museums/parks and oddities to make it feel like home. I am regularly out at the theatre or socialising with friends and am very happy to advise on great things to do here.
Despite this, I am very house proud and enjoy looking after guests whenever they visit. By this I mean offering advice, good coffee, an A-Z and the loan of a travel card (I wont be chewing your ear off or waiting up till you get home!) I have travelled an awful lot with my job which I think gives me a good idea of "what people want" when away from there own homes.
