More about us

  1. We are John and Olwen, an active married couple in our late seventies, retired, with a grown up family. We love the outdoors, we ski, play golf, mountain bike, and like to take walks. We have traveled extensively and over the past 10 years have done some wonderful exchanges in different parts of the world and made some good friends in the process. We love skiing and are keen to do more in Canada and the USA as well as Europe. We would like to get back into overseas exchanges once the pandemic settles down if ever. We are interested in skiing in North Lake Tahoe area, also in the Colorado area, as well as Canadian fields, Whistler, Sun Peaks etc. We also have some unfinished business in Switzerland. Until things are settled we will start looking at NZ swaps. NZ in January through to the end of March experiences warm settled weather 25 - 30 degrees C and is the best time to visit.
    As we are about to move into a retirement village we will just be using our Lake Taupo holiday home for swaps. non simultaneous exchanges will still be possible. We are also happy to make a car available as part of the swap.
