Greg and Kerry love to visit Europe every year to enjoy the stark difference of living in a modern country, such as Australia.
We lived and worked in London for many years, residing in Pimlico. The central location meant lots of young Aussies visiting us and helping them to find their feet on their (mostly) first trip to the UK. We love working with young people and enjoy the company of Greg's has 3 adult children (in the UK) and Kerry's 2 girls in Queensland and New South Wales.
We have 2 little boys in Brisbane; and 2 little girls in London - so our Grandparenting skills are well honed.
We are not into shopping, golf or trekking difficult terrain - but love theatre, different architecture and landscape.
We have swapped homes around 40 times over the past 6 years via homeexchange.com. This site has now amalgamated with what appears an air-bnb type traveller, so we sought to find more like minded travellers. We will look after your home with great respect and anticipate same. Mostly when we leave a home, you would hardly even know we were there.
