I am semi retired Australian and my partner is a Chinese business person. We want to start spending more time back in Australia and are looking to swap with people in the south east area of Queensland ,Australia for any periods after 14/8/08.
We consider ourselves to be very clean living people, non smokers and value other peoples property. We have no pets.
We can speak English and Chinese so we can help with any problems that may occur in a non speaking English country. We are also familiar with many other parts of China and business in China. There are a number of other foreigners living nearby and an International school accross the road where some work.
