Something about ourselves
We are a professional couple with two young children (3 and 5 years old). I was born in Belfast, Ireland, I am 43 years old and my wife is 38 and from our village here in the Basque Country. We met in Ireland and moved to the Basque Country nearly 4 years ago. We have successfully completed two exchanges to date; Bern, Switzerland in Summer 2010 and Galway, Ireland in August 2011. We look forward to our next.
