We are Mike and Nita currently living in Dorset.
Having decided we would like to do some travelling and not really the backpacking or camping type we decided to try our hand at house swapping. We joined a couple of web sites for the over 50s - www.seniorhomeexchange.com and www.homeexchange50plus.com and we are off!
We travel to South Africa on February 11th. We move onto Perth, Western Australia on the 5 March, not returning to Dorset until 28 May. Rather than send lots of emails we thought a blog might be a better way of keeping in touch with friends and family.
Joining us on the first part of our trip is my sister Karen and Brother in law Bill. They are going to fly to Cape Town and explore that area for about a week and then drive up to join us in Kynsna where we will be based.
