Something about ourselves
We are John and Olwen, an active married couple in our sixties, recently retired, with a grown up family. We love the outdoors, we ski, play golf, mountain bike, and like to take walks. We have travelled extensively and have recently experienced three wonderful exchanges in France. We love France and are keen to do an exchange in the Burgundy region with the intention of cycling the region with a couple of friends in June/July 2011. NZ in January through to the end of March experiences warm settled weather 25 - 30 degrees C and is the best time to visit.
