We love Brisbane - the River City
We are a semi-retired married Australian couple, aged 61-66; a former school teacher and consulting engineer. We are experienced travellers. We have lived and worked in Europe, Africa, Asia and the South Pacific Islands. We have enjoyed about 19 previous exchanges in Italy, France, Canada, New Zealand and Australia over 2007-15. We completed home exchanges in France in 2015, but are open for international exchanges in 2016.
We usually travel as a couple, or occasionally with another couple of similar age. We love travel, experiencing new countries and cultures and meeting people. We are non-smokers and would respect and take great care of yor home.

Sandy and Peter, Thank you so much for welcoming us into your home. We loved the weekend that we spent in your apartment. It was fantastic to have all of Brisbane's attractions - shopping, restaurants, botanical gardens and river ferries all within walking distance. The views from your balcony were great. My children especially loved seeing the Storey Bridge lit up at night. We look forward to swapping with you again some time. Best wishes, Sam and Glen
Dear Samantha and Glen We really enjoyed our stay in your lovely Currumbin Valley home, particularly the peace and quiet and the great views of the valley and bushland and our visits to the Currumbin Creek rock pools, national parks and nearby beaches. Thanks so much for meeting us on arrival, showing us the ropes and making us feel so welcome. We too hope that we can do it all again in future. Best, Peter and Sandy
