Alexia and I have now been living in London for a couple of years, after a few more around the UK. We speak 5 languages (Italian, French, Spanish, German and English) in between us two and love travelling and meeting new people, which is why we decided to join airbnb.
We also love food and cooking, and if you are around you could join us for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Of course, when you want to eat out, we can recommend you places that will delight your taste without emptying your pockets. There are plenty of lovely restaurants and bars around our Shoreditch and Hoxton, and we can easily point you to the best ones!
London is a great city and you shouldn't miss out on the chance to get some real insight from fellow travelers like you, who live it and breath it every day of the year.
