OUR AVAILABILITY FOR SWAPS March/April 2016 then in August/September 2016 and also in January 2017. We are happy to consider other offers.
OUR TRAVEL PLANS We are a couple now retired from the workforce — Amy from education administration and Michael, formerly a law academic and judicial officer.
Our two daughters and their families currently work and live in central London (one in Westminster and the other Marylebone). We plan to visit them a couple of times a year, and thus are mainly looking for house swaps somewhere in central London.
Apart from these stays in the UK, we travel widely and welcome other offers for swaps from all EU countries, the USA, Canada and Japan.
