Who we are

  1. Derek and I(Rose) are a retired couple in our sixties.We retired to Spain four years ago.I was a Comprehensive School teacher and Derek was a
    Quantity Surveyor.We travelled extensively when we lived and worked in England,but of late have spent out time travelling in Spain, to get to know other areas and to help improve our language skills.We travelled to So Africa last year to visit relatives and now have the "Travel Bug" again.We would like to see more of France and Italy in Europe.Visit the USA,South America,further afield and return to South Africa.We are open to offers however, but a flying time of about 10hrs is enough for us.We have not exchanged before,but we have rented out our house.As this was successful we decided to try another option.
