Hello from the Sunshine Coast, Australia
Phillip and I (Kari) are married with two teenage children aged 18 and 16(Jackson and Hollie). Our children may travel with us, although it depends on the time and the destination.
We have exchanged before to Canada (once) and New Zealand (twice) and loved it every time. We would like to exchange for 3 weeks in late December to mid January, and for a shorter time (1 to 2 weeks) in July.
We both work full time, Phillip for the Queensland Government and Kari as a town planning consultant. We are an energetic family who love the outdoors, especially swimming, rowing, golf, camping, fishing and driving up the beach in our 4 wheel drive.
We have a 2 year old dog called Charlie. She is very affectionate and loves people. She usually goes to stay at my friend's house if we go away.
December 26 — January 11, 2016 These dates are flexible
We'd love to travel to Thailand for 2 or 3 weeks after Christmas. There'll be 2 couples in our group and 2 teenagers and 1 12 year old.
July 2 — July 10, 2015 These dates are flexible
We'd like to spend a week to 10 days in Fiji or some other South Pacific island. We will be a party of either 3 or 4 for this trip, one couple and either 1 or 2 teenage children. We'd like to be close to the beach, markets, great food and shopping.
October 2 — October 5, 2015
We looking at a quick getaway to Sydney or Melbourne for the Labour Day long weekend (Queensland public holiday 5 October 2015). We'd like to stay in the city or close to it. It's our chance to see a couple of shows and do some big city stuff. Just the two of us, no kids!
We really don't mind where we do our exchanges, we just love to experience the life and cultures of others. We enjoy good food, old civilisations, modern cities, snowy mountains and hot beaches. We really just love friendly people and interesting places. We're active, outgoing and enjoy the outdoors. If we can ski/snowboard anywhere near your house, that would be a bonus!
