My wife and I are in our early 60s and we have lived together in rural Cumbria for nearly 40 years. We are outgoing and well travelled. We have couchsurfed (both hosting and being guests), exchanged our home and started with Airbnb in 2013 (both using and providing). We are tidy, organised, reliable and enjoy meeting new people.
We were both teachers before we went to live in Edmonton, Canada for four years in the early 1980s where Nigel was a post-graduate student. Currently, Christine is a Teaching Assistant and Nigel has retired from being a researcher and writer.
We have two grown up sons, one living in Victoria, Canada and one living in south west Cumbria. We have spent two summers recently visiting friends and family in Canada and are going back this summer. In 2013 we belated had our first holiday together in France and loved it so much we went back in 2014. Greece is a favourite holiday destination but our 'once in a lifetime' trip was to south west Australia, Tasmania and New Zealand in 2008.
Christine enjoys gardening and Nigel makes wine from various fruits. We both exercise regularly, keep in touch with friends worldwide and enjoy reading and watching good films.
