Tom and I love to travel and as we now have the opportunity, we plan to spend 3 months a year overseas.
We are regular visitors to Africa as we work with a locally run AIDS clinic in Uganda called Kawempe Home Care and the proceeds from our airbnb go towards paying the school fees for children who have been affected by AIDS.
We enjoy good food and good wine and we like guests to feel at home.
