My Husband and I have recently retired. We have spent many years involved in education and the last five years working in community development work in China. We love to travel and experience different places and people. We are interested in history and so find each part of the world fascinating. The last few years, as we lived in Asia we have spent time travelling there. We enjoy cities as well as the outdoors and the mountains and beaches we have in New Zealand. We look forward to meeting hosts who can share a little of their homeland and culture with us. We believe communication and listening to each other is the key to understanding.
