Hi, I'm Jan from London. I've worked in TV & movies for 20 years - sounds glamorous but is rarely so - tough, but rewarding. I like weekend breaks, city living, tennis, Western riding and good food. I always like to combine a vacation with some sort of challenge or activity. This year my man Matt and I are off to see the tennis at the US Open. On other trips I like to go off on a bit of a writing retreat or brush up on my riding skills. I prefer apartments or cottages to hotels any day. It's nice to feel like you're in a home from home and have the option to cater for yourself. I'm new to this airbnb thing, but it's a brilliant idea. I might even rent out my own place - which means I'll have to get away more!
