About Our Family
We have both spent most of our lives in education in one field or another. We have two adult children who live elsewhere. Our son is a mechanical engineer and our daughter is a manager of a well known tourist resort. We are a close family and visit each other when possible. On occasions our children also visit with us when we are overseas.
We have been travelling for over 40 years into Europe, North America and Asia, and have lived for several years in the UK. We attempt to travel abroad each year for periods of four to ten weeks and have completed house exchanges in France and Ireland. Our two adult children live in Perth WA and Cairns Queensland respectively and we spend time with each of them during the year. We are fishers, readers and campers with an interest in all sports. Sandra is a keen bridge player and Kevan has an interest in history and languages. We enjoy a relaxed beach lifestyle, dining with friends and good wine.
