I am a copywriter and internet marketing consultant. My partner Mark presently works out in the bush supporting geological exploration camps (mining exploration) as a cook & medic. We both grew up here on the glorious West Coast, and originally hail from the island just off the coast, Vancouver Island, known affectionately by locals as "The Rock".
It's actually a massive island with many sights of it's own, both in the city of Victoria (the capital of British Columbia) and outside in the natural environment, including hiking, climbing, surfing, scuba diving, ski hills, mountain biking - you name it! Vancouver offers a whole lot too!!!
We love sports around here, mine (and my son's) is soccer, which I've played for the past 20 years, and Mark's is rock climbing (14 years of Sport, Aid, Trad, you name it). If there is one thing my partner will never tire of, it is climbing and pretty much any outdoors activity!
We live amidst three local climbing gyms, have the world class granite of Squamish just an hour's drive North of Vanvouver - we especially welcome climbers to stay here as a push off to climb there (we occasionally offer transportation there as well).
It's fair to say we have some language skills around here. I can speak Spanish (albeit poorly), and my seven year old son understands both Greek and French perfectly - admittedly we're still working on his translation skills! I can also manage a thin smattering of French, Greek, German, a touch of Japanese.
We are a welcoming and open minded family who live simply and appreciate nature.
