Trish (my wife) and I (Stuart) are both retired and live in Wellington, New Zealand. We have two mature daughters, one who lives nearby with her husband and four young children and the other who lives with her partner in San Francisco.
We enjoy travel and have managed to do a significant overseas trip each year over the past 20 years. We particularly enjoy sampling the local food and wine (or beer) and generally absorbing the local culture and lifestyle.
Last year we spent five months driving through Italy, using Airbnb accommodation throughout. This year we spent three months in San Francisco with another Airbnb host. In 2015 we intend travelling to Spain for four months and visiting Madrid, La Rioja, San Sebastian, Galicia, Salamanca, Seville, Granada, Toledo, Zaragoza, Barcelona and Valencia, and a number of towns and sites on the way.
