  • Description

    Howdy, so I'm a Londoner (born and bread) but have itchy feet. When I travel, the idea of the holiday package deal isn't my type of retreat. I'm looking for a way to purse my hobbies (also in the skill set below) whilst meeting peeps and seeing new places and spaces! I'm very good at using my own initiative and definitely quite low maintenance, I have been living with large groups of people since I was ten which makes me rather easy to get along with as I understand the community living vibe which I also really enjoy! I worked in interiors but taking some time off to learn/develop my skill set - any positive new experiences are most welcomed. I love cooking, gardening, building, and hugging all forms of pets (yet to hug a lama, maybe one day soon!). I'm pretty good with kids as I think they consider me to be a bit of a clown :) But I'm not super confident with babysitting. I'm not a smoker and I do enjoy the odd beer here and there but would not say no to sharing a bottle of wine, getting hungover on my travels isn't really my priority (now a little older more keen to avoid hangovers!)
