Who we are

  1. We are Catherine and Scott Thomson. I am head of Expressive Arts in a high school and my husband Scott works for Royal Mail. We always have to exchange during school holidays and at set times and have two daughters aged 15 and 21 who will travel with us.
    We have had three very successful exchanges so far to Vancouver, Florida and France and hope to continue this as it is an wonderful way to visit new places.Unfortunately we cannot look after any pets as children are allergic.
    For summer 2014 we are hoping to exchange to United States and somewhere where there is easy access to an airport for two weeks
