Get to Know Showaround Locals in London: Meet Estella
Background: Estella’s passion for travelling has led her to visit different places around the world. After having worked for a few marketing and advertising companies, Estella started her own online business.

Showaround: Why did you decide to become one of Showaround Locals?
Estella: I discovered Showaround one day while surfing the net and I thought it would be a great idea if I could be helpful to people who come to visit my city. Who knows worth visiting spots better than a local?
Showaround: What’s your favourite coffee spot in London?
Estella: Joe & The Juice is my favourite spot in London. You can find amazing juices, too! Every time I go, I try to give myself enough time to read a good book or have a chat with a friend.

Showaround: How would your friends describe you?
Estella: Open-minded, friendly, honest and that I always see the glass half full.
Showaround: How do you spend your free time?
Estella: Yoga has become a regular practice in my life. I just love it. Also, going out with friends for a coffee and a good chat, going to the cinema or concerts, and, of course, travelling as much as I can. I can't say 'no' when it comes to discovering the world!
Showaround: How would you describe the local people of London?
Estella: London is great, but it can be hectic. I can understand that people are always in a hurry to get to work and then home (they have to commute at least twice a day!). Distances are enormous, and it takes so much time to get everywhere.
I can't say 'no' when it comes to discovering the world!
This issue might make them impatient which at times results in Londoners looking serious. Also, the weather is not helping either! I've been living in London on and off for more than two years now. I feel so grateful to have British friends who always make me feel at home.
Showaround: Thank you, Estella, for your answers!
