Who we are

  1. We are two university academics - Don Slater at London School of Economics, Jo Entwistle at London College of Fashion. We both love spending time in the country and on the coast and are keen walkers/hikers. Don is interested in tai chi and Jo has been practising yoga for 5 years. We have a 3.5 year old girl, Isabella and want her to experience living abroad as much as possible before starting school in Sept 07. We are experienced home exchangers, having done 6 abroad and about the same number in the UK. We loved our exchange to Sydney in 2002 and remain friends with our swappers. We have a sabbatical starting from December 2006 till Easter vacation April 07 and are currently looking to find a long term exchange in Sydney.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

Archway is a very lively area, situated in Islington near all the local amenities – shops, restaurants and bars. We have many great local restaurants nearby (Ethiopian, Caribbean, Vietnamese, Brazilian, Polish, as well as the usual Indian, Thai and Chinese). We are near Camden Town, the beautiful and rambling Hampstead Heath, numerous parks, and other lovely areas of north London. On the northern line (station is Archway) we are 15-20 mins to central London and theatres, bars etc. We are in a good location to explore the south and south east - 2 hours from Costwolds, Cambridge, Oxford, South coast.
