My husband and I are retired, now taking up painting and writing. We are also both musicians. We love to travel and particularly love to get away in the winter months when it rains a lot here where we live. We have always had a dog in our home and I grew up with horses and sheep. Animals have been a part of both our lives, always (except cats due to allergies). We currently have a mini-daschund whom we love dearly and who used to come to school with me to cheer up my students, when I was still teaching. We have done several home exchanges and love how living in someone's home brings you much closer to the culture and language of a new country. We especially love to visit Spanish speaking countries as we are working on our Spanish. We are in our late 60's and perfectly able to take care of a home and pets but probably not suited for anything requiring heavy labor.
Having done several home exchanges, we understand the importance of taking good care of your home. We would treat your property and pets with the same care and joy that we treat our own home.
