Barbara and Les are both retired, Barbara from teaching and Les as a private business owner. We are an active non smoking couple who have come to enjoy long term stays in destinations that allow us to settle into the local lifestyle. We always travel with our bicycles and usually spend the mornings riding and the afternoons relaxing.
We were avid gardeners in our home of thirty five years where we developed a beautiful perennial/evergreen garden. As we now live in an apartment in the city it would be a pleasure to stay at a home with gardens that needed tending as this would give us the opportunity to get dirt under our nails again :) A video of the garden would be included with our references.
We were parents of furkids for many years before we sold our home in Surrey, BC and purchased our apartment so we could spend more time travelling. We now get our pet fixes by house sitting.
We prefer locations near to towns as we love wondering the historical areas, shopping at the local markets, occasionally eating at local restaurants and getting to know the people and customs of the area.
Regions where where the sun shines and the weather is mild would be prefered. After all, warm breezes and sunshine always make cycling, walking and gardening so much more pleaseant
