We are two, recently retired school administrators, who enjoy outdoor activity, such as hiking, swimming and golf. We take pride in our property and respect the property of others.
We enjoy travel and meeting new people and seeing new places.
Home exchange is a new venture for us as in the past we have rented homes during our travels. Our work has meant that our travels were short term, but now with the freedom that retirement brings we are looking forward to longer stays.
We enjoy being able to travel in the area that we visit and are not fans of the "all inclusive" packages. Being able to experience some of the local culture is what we believe travel is all about.
