  • Descrição


    We're Amanda and Matthew from London, England. We've been together for around ten years and married for two. Since the earliest days of our relationship we have discussed taking some time out to spend time travelling in the hope that we would meet new people and get to experience and learn from living in other cultures and learn new languages and are both happy that, pandemic allowing, we can finally realise this dream.

    Together, apart from travelling and meeting people whilst doing so (pre-pandemic), we like finding new music to listen to and going to festivals, gigs and the theatre, watching old DVDs, practicising our photography skills, playing board and card games and finding new meals to cook. We also love hosting people in our home, including a number of foster cats over the years. Combined we also have a large extended family that we are close to, including seven nices and nephews to count (with one of the way in November), so are very comfortable looking after children.

    Here's a little bit more information about each of us:

    Amanda - I'm orignally from Essex but moved to London when I was 17 to attend fashion college. I've worked in buying in the toy industry for over twelve years and, during the pandemic, gave up my job in order to pursue a Master's Degree in Philosophy which I completed September 2021. In my spare time I like to volunteer with a charity that works to remedy feelings of isolation and loneliness in the eldery within my local community as well as partake in environmental and animal rights activism. I have been a vegetarian since I was nine and have now been vegan for over six years. I'm also an avid reader, a proficient seamstress and general fixer/tinkerer, a novice ukulele player and vegetable grower.

    Matthew - I'm a born and bred Londoner and have worked for the NHS for many years. I'm a keen road cyclist and love exploring new areas on my bike. I'm also into retro gaming, Netflix binges, Etymology, craft beer and supporting my local football team, AFC Wimbledon. I also recently debuted my cajon box drum playing skills at my sister's wedding. By the end of this year I would have also finished my two year project of decorating our flat from top to bottom including the gruelling process of removing woodchip wallpaper from multiple walls. In college I took media studies and, following this, learnt my way around Photoshop. Many of my school holidays growing up were spent at my parent's caravan on the South Coast of England and, as a result, i've enjoyed swimming in the sea and coastal walks since I was very young.

    Thanks for stopping by to read about us!

  • Quais são suas habilidades?

    We both have experience of decorating and DIY in the process of doing up our flat and of babysitting our nieces and nephews. We are also good at caring for cats and dogs as well as good amateur photographers with our DSLR camera. We also enjoy cooking vegan food together in the evenings.

    Amanda - I am good at sewing and generally fixing things. I'm also really organised and efficient and can help with general admin needs. In terms of languages, I have good basic, Japanese, French and Spanish skills and conversational German. I have also recently started learning Russian as well.

    Matthew - I am tech-savy and good at fixing IT/Tech problems as well as fixing up and cleaning bicycles. I'm also comfortable with photoshop and photo editing. I've just started learning German and am looking forward to further improving. I also make a good cocktail!
