Who we are

  1. We are Carolyn and Robin with 3 adult children and 5 grandchildren. We are wanting to find family holiday destinations to meet up since some family members reside in the UK and others in Capetown. I am retired and enjoy travelling as often as possible. We have done 3 successful home exchanges which we loved. I am an avid reader and love nature, birds and picnics.
