We love travelling, particularly to quieter areas that offer walking, sightseeing and golf activities. Our names are Jan and John and there will not be children travelling with us although there may be 2 friends of a similar age. We have been retired for some time. Jan has a background of tertiary teaching and administration while John is a retired engineer. We live in Wellington but are offering our holiday home just south of Lake Taupo for exchange. We travel to our holiday home several times a year. John enjoys angling and trout fishing while I swim, walk, play golf, croquet and enjoy the peace and scenery.
