Colin is a space geek. You can find him regularly talking to people about the stars at the Royal Observatory Greenwich in the Peter Harrison Planetarium. He has also written about science for people like the European Space Agency and The Guardian. Having won £2000 on TV quiz shows aged 18, he spent three months living in the Swiss mountains which sparked his interest in travelling. He made it to Australia, Italy, America and France in 2011, although not even Sydney and New York could beat London.
Ruth has been a Londoner since Summer ’09, and so now officially understands the night bus system (her personal Everest). By day she works in Organisation Development for a major retailer. By night she enjoys finding new things to do in the world’s greatest city. She loves music, theatre, art and all things vintage, especially drinking gin cocktails from teacups.
Having met in Manchester through Facebook in 2006, we finally got together in 2011 and now live together in the shadow of The Shard, where we are busy planning our 2013 wedding.
