Alan & Maree are retired from full time work. Previously involved in accounting and taxation work. We spend as much time as possible travelling. 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 the usual sightseeing. We are retired from full time paid work. Our house exchanging can be leisurely without numerous planned activities in a rural, mountain or seaside location, or within a more structured or busy environment - just ask us. 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 five grandchildren, Eric 18, El 15, 8 year old twins, Tilly and Frankie, and baby Quinn. We have exchanged within and outside Australia 56 times and all have been successful.
