Who we are

  1. My name is Mary. My husband, Michael teaches law at the University of Western Sydney in Parramatta. I work as a Regional Planner for the NSW Government. Michael will be a visiting research scholar at Lancaster University in the second half of 2008. We would like to swap anywhere in northern England for one or two months, any time between early October and mid-December. Our son, has just finished school and is taking a "gap" year overseas before entering university. Our daughter is 14 years and will be travelling with us. Parramatta is steeped in history and is easy access to the city. We love travelling into the inner west to visit the independent cinemas in Leichhardt. We have a good home library, and an excellent selection of music for any visitor.We enjoy the Theatre and dining in Parramatta. We have participated in a home exchange in 2003 when we went to Toronto Canada for four months and had a fantastic experience. We also had a wonderful exchange in Brisbane in 2007.
