Sarah and I are originally from Houston, Texas but moved to London (work transfer) in 2012. After a couple years we decided we'd take a break from London and practice our French in Paris. We ended up staying almost a year before returning to London, none the better at French. Et voilá.
During the first month back in London, we took a weekend holiday to Edinburgh. We both fell in love with Edinburgh within 5 minutes of arriving at Waverly Station. The following month we returned and stayed with the same Airbnb hosts for 4 weeks -- during which we decided to stay and not return to London.
FUN FACT: Sarah and I were featured on a popular American television show on the network HGTV, called House Hunters International. We filmed in Houston and London, as the premise of the show follows expats as they find a new property abroad. For those who are familiar with the show, make sure to ask us about it and we can spill all the secrets of the show. And for those guests who are interested, we have the episode on DVD. But please, no autograph requests :)
We have been using Airbnb to travel since late 2011. In 2015, we decided to start hosting guests in our previous flat. In November of 2016, we bought a flat with our future Airbnb guests in mind! :)
There's nothing more that we enjoy than to host guests while they visit this magical city. We love meeting people from all over and sharing stories and adventures. Our goal as hosts is to make the guests' experience all the better!
