I'm from Canada and have been living in east London for the past 7 years.
Its a great location because it is so close to everything I love to do on foot, bike, or the tube that I can see from the lounge window. I have endless great recommendations for east London and will be happy to point you in the right direction for shopping, unique pubs, non touristy walks, great places for brunch, and more.
I'm a full time viticulture student at the University of Brighton, so when I'm not commuting, or studying, I also work as a book designer.
There is also a cat in this flat who loves nothing more than to take advantage of a warm lap and insist on cuddles.
