My husband & I are in our early forties and our 2 children 12 & 15.
He owns a manufacturing business and I am a stay at home mum.
We enjoy travelling together & have visited Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Bali & Fiji.
We are very keen to house swap in December 08, preferably New York, as we have always wanted to spend the festive season over in the US. Hopefully a 'white Christmas'.
