  • Description

    Description

    We are a couple in our forties. I am a Spanish, French and ESOL teacher and my husband Neil works in IT. We enjoy a variety of music, cooking, learning new languages, entertaining and travelling. We have both travelled a lot in Europe and further a field. We love meeting new people and would enjoy helping you to discover Glasgow and the surrounding area. Right beside the house there is Overtoun Park, ideal for a morning walk or run. There are local shops about 10/15 minute walk away.
    Glasgow has a wide variety of restaurants, bars and music venues. We are less than 10 minutes on the train from Glasgow city centre. The train station is less than a 15 minute walk from the house. Glasgow is also a hotspot for museums and galleries many of which are free. It also has lots in the way of high street shopping.

    We are a 40 car drive from Troon beach and Ayrshire costal path and an hour from the start of the Fife costal path. There is also public transport available to both.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We have a warm welcoming home. We live in the suburbs but it is less than 10 minutes on the train to the city centre and 15 minutes to the west end. The train station is a 15 minute walk from our home. I am a Spanish, French and ESOL teacher and my husband Neil works in IT. We enjoy a variety of music, cooking, entertaining and travelling. We have both travelled a lot in Europe and further afield. We hope that we can share meals together and we can show you round the local area.
