Hello and thankyou for checking in...
I am an active semi-retired empty nester, fortunate to hold dual citizenship of Australia and UK. To fellow Brits: Born in Dorset - to cut a very long story short - I have lived in Australia for the last 15yrs. I have been ticking off a few bucket list hikes which have kept me from returning on a regular basis. Circumstances have now changed as my 2 sons have recently moved overseas with work - to Dubai and UK. They truly have flown the nest!
There is now an added incentive to return more regularly. Catching up with friends and family is wonderful and the idea of a 'home base' to provide quiet time to relax would be a perfect combination. Location wise - ideally not too far from Dorset and Hertfordshire. To fellow Australians: I do not work Saturday to Tuesday. If a suitable short stay home exchange of 3-4 nights in beautiful Avoca Beach interests you please get in touch.
Hoping Home Exchange 50+ can assist on both counts!
Good luck everyone with your home swap.
Best Wishes, Lynsey
