We enjoy house exchanging as it allows us to concentrate on an area and get to know what it is like to live there. As well as house exchanging, we enjoy being on the road in our Fiat Ducato Motorhome - Alan now assembles motorhomes¬† as a hobby. We have four grandchildren, Eric 17, El 14, and seven year old twins, Tilly and Franky. We have exchanged within and outside Australia 52 times and all have been successful.
