Heather and I are currently spending 18 months discovering the joys of France and other countries in Europe. We have travelled extensively through my career as an Architect specialising in hotel/resort designs around the world. We are keen and experienced travellers through-out Europe, USA, Canada, Japan, Pacific Islands, West Indies, India and Asia, for work and pleasure.
We are non-smokers, fit, fun loving and have no health problems.
We enjoy meeting people and involving ourselves in new experiences.
I am a keen golfer and look to enjoy the courses in Florida. We have looked after a villa in France for 7 months and are currently looking after a villa and vinyard in Italy before joining our Son and family in London for Chrismas - Then Florida.
In the community field, I was president of our local Rotary Club and a director of hotel groups.
We are sports lovers, I play golf, like to walk and am an experienced sailor. Heather is keen to keep fit, is a regular participant in yoga classes, enjoys walking and exploring new places, and swimming.
Heather has been teaching English and related subjects at Macquarie University in Sydney to speakers of other languages. This experience has added to the understanding of different country customs and the tolerance required in different circumstances.

We have had very nice homes in Australia, and raised a great family in an environment where entertaining, both in a casual and formal nature, were part of our lives.
We are accustomed to looking after quality homes and properties and enjoy the experience.
