We are a retired professional couple that love to travel. Keith was born in the English Midlands and has also lived on the Isle of Wight and Scotland before emigrating to Canada. He had a long career in Administration, first at Toronto University and later at the University of Vancouver.
Sybil comes from Wales and later Bristol, England where she attended University for a degree in French and German.
We met in Toronto, where Keith studied Business Administration and Sybil completed courses at the Faculty of Education. Toronto was our home for 27 years. Our 3 children, now grown up and also living in Western Canada, were born there.
Our love of travel has taken us to almost every state and province in North America and to many parts of Europe as well as Australia and New Zealand. We have camped, cruised, exchanged timeshares and made our own itineraries to all kinds of interesting places.
At home on beautiful Vancouver Island we enjoy gardening, walking reading and entertaining. Sybil is involved in teaching Bible at our local church and helping out with after-school programmes on our nearby First Nations Reserve. She is also busy writing a family history dating back to the late 1700's.
Keith is a keen philatelist and avid reader of mysteries. We both enjoy photography and spend time working on restoring old photos. As a family we reinvented an old Irish word game to produce our own Aletteration, which can be bought in boxes or accessed on an ap.
When the tennis grand slams are on you will usually find us in front of the TV. In 2010 Keith had the privilege, when volunteering at the winter Olympics in Vancouver and Whistler, of chauffeuring VIP's to their various destinations. We have a timeshare in Whistler and Keith is involved as a member of the owners' committee for the upkeep and improvement of the property.
Since becoming airbnb hosts two years ago we have had the pleasure of offering our home to guests from many countries of Europe, Korea, Singapore, Australia and New Zealand as well as Canada and the U.S. A few have made return visits. We always enjoy meeting new people.
