Something about ourselves
I'm 41 years old and my little boy will be 9 years old this summer; I'm working for the French motorway as Manager of the Call Center. My husband have 2 children, 15 et 11 years old. He's teaching landscaping in a professional college. He loves trees and gardens, he could take care of your plants ! Our little pet, called Samba, is very quiet and well educated. We'd like travelling in other countries all around Europe and have aldready make 3 successful exchanges in Ireland, Italy and Portugal. I like the concept of exchange to discover the real life of people.
