The exchange is for 2 of us, in our 40's and 50's, a wholistic couple, an acupuncturist/cranial sacral therapist and an entrepreneur, artist and architectural designer. We love nature, hiking, organic foods, music, dancing, reading, wildlife, our dog, and we long to be in the mountains or forest by a lake or river and redwoods or evergreens. Trees, mountains and water are important to us. We have lived many places: India, Greece, Sri Lanka, France, N. Africa, Bali, Santa Fe, Taos, California.
We look for homes and surroundings that have character, beauty, quality, and privacy, and we love towns in the Alps and Himalayas, Mt Shasta and Northern california..
One of us speaks french fluently myself just a little.
