We are a family of three - my husband (Roland), ten-year-old son (Revelin), and myself (Shelley). We moved to Kure Beach from Canada and found a wonderful, friendly community on the island. Roland works from home in the IT industry over the internet, so any exchange must include excellent internet access. My son is in school, so summers and holidays are the best time for us to travel - although weekend exchanges close enough to drive to would be welcome. I am a Technical Writer by profession and traveler by passion. We have pets that often travel with us- 2 dogs (boxers) Moose and Lucy and 2 turtles. Obviously our house is pet-friendly! Although we prefer any correspondence in English my husband can also speak French. We have enjoyed travelling to Mexico, France, Ireland, and the United States and are open to new experiences anywhere.
