Occupation: Architect

My passions are:

  • Design
  • Travelling
  • Writing

In my city I have great tips for:

  • Restaurants & food
  • Parks & nature
  • Bars & nightlife
  • Alternative spots

My idea of a great trip is: Completely unplanned, take it as you go, stay as long as you like, make new friends, then move on to the next place when you're ready. Just arrive and discover your own personal experience.

I love my city because: London is simply huge, you could live here for years and barely scratch the surface. There is an endless list of experiences to discover and enjoy. Londoners are always rushing and energetic, they work hard but they play harder, and have developed some of Europe's best pub culture, nightlife, live music and restaurant scenes - if you know where to look. When you catch locals in the right environment, they are some of the friendliest and fun people you'll meet.

I have travelled to: I grew up in Australia, but a quarter-life crisis (google it, it's real!) landed me in London. Since then, in no particular order... Edinburgh, Belfast, Cardiff, Paris, Barcelona, Lisbon, Lagos, Zurich, Turin, Milan, Florence, Rome, Venice, Bovec, Berlin, Munich, Prague, Krakow, Amsterdam, Leiden, Den Hague, Copenhagen, Stockholm, Reykjavik, Tromsø, Abu Dhabi, Red Sea, Bangkok, Phuket
