Something about ourselves
We are a retired couple in their early 60's. We have three grown up children and two of the girls are currently working and living in London. Our third daughter is a social worker and living close by. Geoff is British but has lived in SA for many years and was a Quantity Surveyor and Liz worked in the employment field as well as in the catering industry. We have house swopped on two previous occasions and both times have been very successful.
