Member description
We are a married couple with no children. Jon (48) was born and raised in New Zealand. He has spent the past 25 years living in Canada and the US. He is a semi-retired software engineer. Kristen (32) is the Art Director at a local gallery. She was born in the US and has lived in Canada for the past 7 years. We love the outdoors and to travel. Jon loves to ski and mountain bike. Kristen loves to create art and perform on stage. We both like the sun, the beach and to get around on a bicycle. We’re responsible folk who like to keep a clean and pleasant home. We would love to find similar people to house swap with. We have a sweet, chill Bernese Mountain Dog named Bowie. We may want to bring him on a house swap or we may leave him to stay with friends in Rossland (i.e. you will not need to care for him).
