We are a couple in our late 50s both involved in the education system, who will be retiring soon. We love the outdoors - walking, biking, exploring new places along with good food and wine. We have travelled extensivley throughout Australia in our caravan. We love traveling and have been to Europe twice, however there are still many places we have yet to see. Now that we have more time, we are looking forward to returning to Europe. Traveling from Australia we are primarly looking for longer exchanges.
