Something about ourselves
My husband, Hugh and I have two lively boys (aged 17 and 12yrs). We both work as School Counsellors/Psychologists. Our busy life revolves around work and sporting committments. We have travelled with our boys for four months in Europe in 2010, mostly with house exchanges, and had a fantastic time, staying in some great homes, and meeting lots of wonderful people through house swapping. We look forward to more house swaps in the future. We live in a fantastic community and natural environment and anyone who did a swap with us would be well looked after during their stay here. We are actively involved in several community and environmental groups on Tamborine Mountain, and love to "get outside" to bushwalk, cycle and swim.
