We are a couple who love travelling, we're interested in art, writing, theatre, walking and food. (Kate is an artist and Terence is a psychotherapy trainer and consultant). We are new to “People Like Us” though we have been doing exchanges with “HomeExchange” over the past year or so. We like that “People Like Us” is new and has a strong sense of community. We are looking forward to enjoying more new destinations. We hope that your visit to our place in Sligo is also enjoyable and we will do whatever we can to make it a smooth, memorable and pleasant exchange for you.
Terence and Kate
