Occupation: Architect

My passions are:

  • Music
  • Sports

In my city I have great tips for:

  • Bars & nightlife
  • Parks & nature
  • Culture hubs
  • Hidden gems

I love my city because: I've never felt out of place in London, it became a second home very quickly. The city is unique for me because it has opened me to things I would naturally shy away from whilst also facilitating all of my established hobbies. But most of all, you feel like you're a part of something. Any interest you have, any person you admire, almost certainly they will pass through London and besides New York there's probably no other city that can say that.

I have travelled to: All Europe so far with plans to expand this later in the year. London, Stuttgart, Berlin, Split, Hvar, Dubrovnik, Florence, Venice, Rome, Milan, Barcelona, Olot, Marseilles, Cote d'Azur, Paris, Amsterdam, Krakow, Copenhagen, Bovec, Bordeaux, Cenac, Olbia, Cagliari, Vienna, Prague, Tromso

My idea of a great trip is: I feel the natural landmarks of a destination take second place to the man-made, so I make a point to spend most of my time outdoors. As an architect I love what a historic city has to show me, but planning a day where I have 8 hours to split between a beach, a track and some mountains, that's what I most look forward to.
