More about us

  1. We are Mark and Trish, active, semi-retired, and in our early sixties, with a grown up family[7 grandchildren]. In 2010 we completed a two month tour of Europe having visited 15 countries in total and also included five exchanges. We toured Spain, Portugal and Morocco in April/May 2011. We visited Canada/North America in Sept/Oct 2013. We visited the North Queensland coast mid 2014. We have just completed a tour of Europe in 2015. We are now considering exchanges in Hawaii, Asia and of course Oceania . Non simultaneous exchanges are not a problem as we have 2 homes. We have made numerous lasting friendships from our exchanges and take pleasure welcoming our guests from other countries.
