We are a retired couple whose children have flown the nest.
Brian is enjoying his retirement from an Architectural Design Department within a Local Authority. Helen worked with Victim Support County Durham for 13 years.
Early in 2012 our daughter was married in Pennsylvania. Brian found superb airbnb accommodation in Philadelphia, which gave him the idea of hosting in UK. Since then, we've been guests in Airbnb rooms in Nottingham, Coldstream and more recently (Dec 2014) Manchester to visit our son and his wife. So we fully appreciate being 'guests' and are getting to understand 'hosting' too.
We celebrated our 60th birthdays with a trip to Andalucia, Spain. However Greece is Brian's favourite hot holiday destination while Helen loved Zell Am See in Austria and Iceland. We've had great trips to see friends and family in San Antonio, Texas and Philadelphia USA.
Other places visited include Belarus, Poland, France, Belgium, Cyprus, Crete, Zakynthos and Corfu.
We also love Great British travel.... including Scotland, Wales, Wiltshire (some of Helen's family live there), Derbyshire and North Yorkshire...
