We live in the city of Wollongong which is 80 km south of Sydney ...... still in the same house we built in 1972. We have 2 children who have long flown the nest, 3 grandchildren and a grand-dog. Keeping fit is important to us and we both work out regularly at the local gym which has kept us young at heart and young physically. We love to travel both in Australia and overseas and relish the chance to see new and unusual places preferring to work it all out ourselves rather than relying on organized tours although sometimes these are necessary depending on the location. We have many happy memories of trips to Europe, Turkey, China, Vietnam, Britain, New Zealand, Peru, Ecuador, Scandinavia, Russia, Canada and Alaska. We especially love to walk whether it be in town or in the mountains and over the last few years we have participated in walking tours in the Pyrenees in France, Alpejarras in Spain, Routeburn Track in NZ and the Inca Trail in Peru.
