I am a journalist with three grown up children. I live in the country and the apartment is my London home which I use two or three times a month for a night or two. Otherwise it is often available for Airbnb guests.
Sadly I am rarely able to meet my guests as I live a long way out of London but I keep lines of communication open, answer questions promptly and always check that everything is OK after their arrival.
I lived in Sydney for several years and am happy that many of my guests come from Australia - they are great travellers. Quite often guests have come to visit their adult children who live and work or study in London.
My favourite holidays are active: riding, walking, tennis. Favourite destinations: Patagonia, Kenya, SW France, Tuscany. Currently reading: The Master by Colm Toibin. Last read: Do no harm by Henry Marsh. I love dancing, cooking, gardening, walking, tennis and riding.
Life motto: never be afraid to entertain strangers lest you entertain angels unawares.
