I'm from London and I'm currently living in Germany. At heart I'm a cockney geezer with a passion for jellied eels, The Clash and 'avin a butchers at a tootie fruitie, but that non-conformist was beaten out of me at school. Now I'm a translator. I used to be an investigative journalist and financial journalist. If we have a few drinks together you might meet the cockney me though ;-).
I have used airbnb quite a lot. Usually in between looking for permanent flats. Also sometimes for holidays. It was really great.
