I am Canadian and my wife is Australian. I met her when she was exchange teaching in Vancouver in 1999. We married and I commuted from Vancouver to Perth for the 1st 8 years of our marriage. In 2007 she suggested that we retired then rather than "wait until we are on walkers". from 2007 to 2011 We have been house sitting around the world and enjoying tavel between the house sits. I have a property in North Vancouver and We are currently residing at her house in Williamstown in Australia renovating....a new adventure.
