Something about ourselves
We are a professional couple (retirement age but still working,no children at home). John has just retired from fulltime lecturing and is doing research at University of NSW and Bronwyn teaches Child Studies at TAFE and thus our holidays must be taken in NSW school holiday period. We don't have pets to allow us more flexibility to travel. We have travelled to Europe, China, India, Japan and Mexico for holidays and work in the past. In general we would like to do house swaps one week in July holiday period and in late December, early to mid January, possibly to New Zealand or Tasmania. We have family in the Noosa area in Queensland and would like to do an exchange in that area. Our house is well placed for Sydney New Year and fireworks. We are new to house exchange and would like to have a phone call/ Skype to get to know fellow "exchangers" and make arrangements.
