Something about ourselves
We are a youthful down-to-earth 68yr old retired couple - Peter/Lol(see photo) We're fortunately fit and in good health and are really having fun. We gym, walk, read, are generally very creative and garden a lot. We are members of our local music society, cook and enjoy good times, good food & good wine with our friends on a regular basis. We have two Yorkies (Miro & Joli) and a beautiful cat named Majestic. Our Yorkies will be taken care of while we travel but if possible we would like our exc to take care of Majestic will be part of an exchange provided our exchange partners if willing to take care of majestic.She is very easy, independent and requires only to be fed plus a little bit of attention from time to time. We love travelling (especially Southern France/Louberon area, and Italy/Amalfi area which we have done on a number of occasions. We need to have a motor vehicle at our disposal for travel in around the regions we will be visiting. Our two vehicles as mentioned would be available for our exchange partners.
