My wife and I are retired late 50 somethings having spent too much time in the IT industry. Over the years we have lived and worked in the USA, UK and New Zealand. We have varied tastes and enjoy traveling and integrating with all the local people and customs we encounter. We are keen lawn bowlers and support the Sharks rugby team (45 min drive).
