My name is Joanne. I am from New Zealand and have been living in the UK for over twenty years, living in London before settling here in Bristol.
Since 2009 i have worked closely with an established Bristol language school and am valued by them for my contribution to hosting.
I have joined Airbnb after creating a second room to rent in my home and look forward to expanding my hosting experience by offering accommodation to travellers / visitors, university students, those looking to relocate and or work in Bristol as well as foreign language students.
I love cooking, making bread and baking cakes. I also enjoy my garden, sewing , patchwork and quilting when I can make the time. Travelling to other countries, Europe, France and Italy in particular are always on the agenda. When travelling not possible I enjoy hosting people from different countries or parts of England, the cultural exchange Is always inspiring and enriching.
My main concern as a host for my guests is that they find my home welcoming, relaxing and comfortable to be in. Respect, consideration, open communication, laughter go a long way, home made cake and tea too I will say no more except thank you for taking the time to read this.
