We are a family of four who love to travel and see new things. We have two healthy, well trained boys, Daniel (15) and Jesse (19). We have holiday swapped in Victoria and Western Australia. Steve is an English teacher and Liz works as a counsellor. We may be in a position to do non simultaneous swaps as well as simultaneous.
