Interacció amb els hostes
I am an independent social worker, working from home. My hours are not fixed so I can be flexible to greet guests. This space will suit single visitors who enjoy a bit of social interaction/ conversation in the evenings if they wish. It is a quiet, safe space.

Sometimes I dog- sit my daughter's West Highland Terrier. I should be able to tell you if the dog will be there during your visit, for those who may not feel comfortable with a dog. She is very cute, but I understand not everyone can live with a dog.
I am a retired social worker, living alone but I have family nearby - a son and daughter-in-law with two children, and a daughter and her partner. I host one guest only at a time. I offer a safe and restful space and am also happy to chat if guests want to.
In younger years I traveled a lot and lived in Africa for 20 years. I now prefer a quieter life. My interests include recycling old clothes; quilting; sewing; reading avidly and a lot of child care for grandchildren.
I also enjoy walking and for guests staying more than a couple of nights I offer a guided walking tour, free, of some of the beautiful areas of Edinburgh which visitors often don't see. These walks last 2 hours maximum and depend on weather and also my availability as I lead a busy life.
I have been doing airbnb since August 2015 and during that time have met some amazing people who have shared their stories with me. It is a privilege to be a host and it has given me a lot of pleasure.
