- Colleen Retired Teacher (1)
- Patrick Retired RCMP- Peace Officer (1)
Hi from the Great Canadian Prairie
Patrick is a retired Royal Canadian Mounted Police officer and Colleen has retired from Elementary School teaching, therefore we can consider any time of the year for travel. We are both Rotarians. We are the parents of three adult ladies, two (and soon to be three) son-in-laws and a grandson who comes for visits now and then. We have no pets and are firm non-smokers so our house should be thought of as pet and smoke clean.
Any time These dates are flexible
At this time we are very interested in an exchange to the Sydney Australia area. We have an adult daughter attending Univ of Sydney and wish to maintain her connection with her young son, our grandson. We will be bringing him to Sydney,for visits of up to 3-4 weeks for this purpose. Any exchange within commuting distance of the "Uni" will be of keen interest to us.
We had an elegant hosted stay with Colleen and Patrick. They are brilliant emissaries for Alberta, knowledgeable of all the nooks, crannies, backroads, history, and ecology of the beautiful plains. They have set a precedent to hosted stays that we may never find again. The golden canola fields of Alberta with the rugged Rocky Mountains as a backdrop will live in our minds forever.
This was our second lovely stay at this comfortable, classy, country home. Colleen and Patrick are accommodating and helpful exchangers, and we would not hesitate to exchange with them again. We found their home clean and neat, and they left ours in the same condition. The views of the foothills and mountains are breathtaking, and the home itself is welcoming, comfortable and as advertised. A great exchange with great folks! Highly recommended.
