Originally from Montreal, Canada, attended uni in London, and fell in love with the city.., So, naturally, I moved across the pond.
A global vagabond by nature, I now try and travel as much as possible between work and weekends. I’ve lived everywhere from the sandy beaches of Barbados, to the epicentres of Hong Kong, Melbourne, Manila and London. I’ve climbed the peaks of the Andes, lived in the bush in East Africa, and caravanned throughout the Middle East. What's next!?
I can't do without: a good espresso in the morning, sunshine (why do I live in London again?), the interwebs (sad, but true), friends/family, dogs, ironic animal motif jumpers/t-shirts and my bike (+helmet and lock).
As a guest in your home you can expect laugher (a good sense of humour), respect and companionship. I love getting to know new people and experiencing new cultures - so the more local the experience the better. In return all I look for is a nice, safe place to stay, a good conversation, and hopefully a new friend at the end of the day.
I usually cheers to "It is what it is, it was what it was" - that usually helps me get through.
It is what it is, it was what it was
