Alan and Sue are retired lecturers with no kids still at home. Sue retires in July 09. We love our bushland home and walk the local tracks regularly. Alan is chairman of the local canoe club www.kayakandcanoe.org.au and we paddle regularly. Club members would be most willing to assist in advice or paddle with you. Alan has also taken up gliding and has obtained his solo certificate. We have travelled overseas often usually with a paddling focus to UK, Canada, USA and UK. This is our first go at exchange but we know friends who have had good experiences. Sue's parents live about 10 minutes drive away and could assist with help or advice if needed. Neighbours are lovely people and could also help if needed.
Alan grew up on the Wirral and wants to spend some quality time re-exploring the footpaths of Wirral.
