I'm an American who moved to the UK in 2009 thinking I was staying 2 years for my job, and then would move back when my time was up. Life had a different plan for me, though. I met my husband shortly after, and have now been in London ever since. We recently had a baby boy, and the three of us love exploring and traveling the world. I can't wait for him to learn about all of the places we took him when he's older!
We are also very familiar with Airbnb, as we have helped my in-laws market their cottage in London through the site. It's been great to see how many nice people have been able to find the cottage and come visit from all over the world. My husband and I both work in the hotel industry, but prefer using Airbnb when we travel as a family!
