And finally but most importantly, I would like to thank all of the Live-in Guardians team for the fantastic opportunity you gave me to be living in such an amazing place! I debated with myself, where in London I would go, when our time was up and I decided that that the next best place would be Barcelona (not London) ! and so, I will be commuting every week, from May 2014, spending 3 days working in London and 5 days living in Barcelona! If you do expend your business there, please, let me know!
