Something about ourselves
We are a married couple of 41 years aged 62/61 but young at heart. We have lived in Australia as we were £10 poms back in the 70`s. My husband will soon be a retired Electrical Engineer and I have worked in Banking and Insurance but now retired. My daughter emigrated to Sydney 8 years ago and we like to visit for periods of 3-6months yearly but have our own place whilst there. My other daughter is in Nottingham only 2 mins away so can help if needed whilst you are here. Other locations considered as we plan to retire this year and do lots of travelling. Would prefer period Sept-April for swops in Oz but open to all offers.
