Something about ourselves
George (64) is an IT Specialist working for the British Columbia ferry system and Robin (55) is the Directors' Secretary/Admin Assistant working for the Parks, Recreation and Culture Department of the City of Nanaimo. We love to travel. We are "empty nesters". We both work full time, although we are looking forward to retirement and being able to travel more often. We enjoy camping and fishing and have a extra truck with camper/caravan - sleeps 5 (which has also been enjoyed by our exchange partners) and a couple of boats for fun at home in the summer - and even sometimes winter camping. We have a few (outdoor only) animals but we have the great help of someone who takes care of them in our absence.
