Joined January 2019
We are 3 generations .... grandmother 72, mother 50, and grandson 24. We have been traveling together for over 13 years.
We are a family group of three generations who have been exploring parts of the world and Australia together for over 13 years. This is our first house swap foray and we are super excited at the endless possibilities! We trust our beautiful home and seaside surroundings will interest and inspire you too!
I, Joy am retired now from work but not from life. I was a sales manager for many years before starting my own direct sales jewellery company with 10 employees and 200 commission agents across Australia. I am a neat freak according to my grandson which is probably the best asset I have to offer as both a home owner (you can be sure my home is comfortable, spruced up and spiffy for you) and as a potential home exchanger as I can’t turn the cleaning/caring gene off when I’m in your home!
My daughter Lisa, who is our tour guide is an adventurer who drags us all kicking and laughing out of our comfort zone everywhere we go ... which so far between us has been The Phillipines, Vietnam, India, Singapore, Hong Kong, Athens, the Greek islands, Zimbabwe, Croatia, Switzerland, Austria, France, Malta, Italy, the U.K., U.S., and coming up on our fourth 3 month visit to South America.
Lisa is my ‘boy/girl’ in that her father trained her to be self sufficient and taught her such diverse things as how to fix a water pump, rewire her caravan, repair fences, change a tyre and do running repairs, gardening and home maintenance in general. She would be an asset if left to oversee your home, pets and property.
Wilson is a free spirit who sees in nature, animals, art and music that which others may not. He loves small children and all animals! He is an accomplished musician and composer in English and Spanish which he speaks fluently. He plays a variety of instruments including the piano, guitar and Bolivian instruments such as the charango and zampoñas.
