Something about ourselves
We are both retired (60 yrs) and are looking forward to traveling as much as we can. The children have grown & are on their own. I retired from teaching elementary school and Ken retired from being a ship's officer. We enjoy camping, fishing, food, beautiful buildings & landscape. Ken loves his museums & history. We now have a "hospitality" (Nova Scotians), a simultaneous (33 days in Germany) and a non-simultaneous exchange (Waterloo, Ont,) under our belt. Homes for exchange is a wonderful experience. People seem to be of the same mind - worked hard to get to retirement and want to enjoy the world in a friendly environment. Our first lengthy exchange was in Germany for a month which was very enjoyable & successful. Our experiences have been very positive & we like to keep in contact during our exchange via the internet.
