I'm Alan. Irish born living in Scotland for almost 21 years. Its a great place to live....easy to access, to walk around; very picturesque, historic, friendly, traditional but also a very modern thinking city.
I've worked all my life in the hotel & tourism industry. My mum had a guest house where my siblings and I would help her prepare our home. My first memory was serving a rack of hot toast to some guests when I had to stretch up to the table to hand the toast over....and yes you guessed, it fell onto the floor! I can assure you this hasnt happened too often since in my life!
My parter is from Madrid so we defintely want you to come if you are Spanish/Spanish speaking :-) We enjoy food...all types but arguably Spanish sits high on the list especially Paella, Chorizo and Cocido! When we are not working/being an airbnb host we love to travel and holiday. In the past few years we've had the opportunity to visit such wonderful places as Marrakesh, the north Spanish regions of Cantabria, Basque and Asturias; Valencia, Tenerife and many visits to Madrid. I love to ski but sadly due to work commitments I wont get to go. In 2014 we hope to do some island hopping through Greece or Croatia & Montenegro.
See you in Edinburgh soon!
