Something about ourselves
We are Joe and Joan, a married couple of 26 years and have one grown daughter. We are both recently retired and want to discover the world. We are also travelling with Richard and Sheila, a married couple of 37 years, both recently retired and have 2 grown children. We would like to discover Australia or Belgium or the Netherlands would give us a start in seeing Europe. We have enjoyed one house exchange this past summer and know from good reports from friends who have exchanged many times that it is a great way for us to see the worls and for you to see our great country too.
