My wife, Cathy, and I, Tim retired in 2014 after working as solicitors for most of our professional lives.
We are experienced home swapping members of Home Exchange 50 and HomeExchange.com and we have have had four very happy and successful exchanges to England. In addition, we have also had wonderful exchanges to Portugal, Italy, France, Canada, Switzerland and Ireland and we have enjoyed meeting new people and making new and lasting friendships with our exchange couples.
We have one grown up daughter who lives and works in Sydney, Australia. Cathy and I are both fit and well and are looking forward to travelling as much as we can over the next 5 to 10 years. We are ready, willing and able to travel within a short but reasonable time frame. We are both non-smokers and we have no pets. For most of our married lives, we have had a least two cats for pets but have not adopted any more since our last two cats passed away after 16 years with us. We are willing and able to look after pets for our exchange partners, if that is convenient and we have done so on two of our recent swaps.
Cathy is an avid book reader, I am happy to play golf, as and when I can. We both enjoy museums and natural history and enjoy countryside walks and exploring new places and the histories of the countries we visit.
We have a 3 year old, automatic Honda Accord Luxury 4 door sedan, which is also available for exchange if we are able to agree to exchange cars with our house swap partners.
