Who we are

  1. We are family of three, two grown ups 43 & 46 and a 13 year old.

    I am Cathryn and I run my own business and Stephen (my husband) is a section head in a local college and Rebecca is our daughter.

    We all love to travel and enjoy the outdoors. We especially enjoy water sports, sailing, surfing, kitesurfing, kiting or blokarting.

    We love Cities in the winter and sea and sand in the summer (or winter if its warm).

    We all love great food and try and indulge ourselves in the local culture when we visit different places.

    We are open to most ideas for exchanges, and would consider most countries.

    We are tied to school holiday for the longer periods but happy to exchange for long weekends.
