Kia ora from the South Island of New Zealand
Our names are Gerald (69) and Susan (64). We are fit, healthy, retired, adaptable Kiwis and members of the lucky baby boom generation. We moved to Central Otago from Auckland in 2001 to retire and this is our second home. At the same time Gerald, as a retirement interest, transitioned from businessman to published author, photographer and historian. Just Google his name 'Gerald Cunningham' for details. Susan is a career mother and grandmother who enjoys crafts, gardening and making quilts. We discovered home exchanging in 2008. Since then we have completed eight very successful long term (1 month plus) exchanges in Manhattan, Las Vegas, Plymouth, Chicago, Amsterdam, Menorca, Berlin and Prague, through HomeExchange.com, Have loved each place and met some wonderful people. We have two grown children who have now made their own lives and gifted us with four granddaughters.
