We love to travel. As a family with our 2 children we covered many kilometres in Australia via 4WD, camping under the stars. Now the family has grown we have traded camping for more comfort. We have visited Fiji, New Zealand, Vanuatu, Thailand. In 2007 we enjoyed 4 months travelling - starting in Canada and Alaska, then over to the UK and Europe and finishing up on a wonderful cruise around the Greek Islands. In 2011 we travelled to the UK and then joined a European River Cruise through France on the Saone and Rhone Rivers. We would love to travel through South Africa to the game parks; although we would just love to travel anywhere. New experiences and cultures is what we enjoy the most.
We moved from a cattle/sheep property in country NSW to the coast 13 years ago and managed high rise holiday and corporate buildings. We enjoyed the people interaction of the holiday apartments. After a brief try at semi-retirement, we are back working to keep our "travel bug" fed! We love the warm weather, walking on the beach and being able to kick back and relax.
We have cruised on the Holland America liner through the inside passage of Alaska; cruised the Greek Islands and then only smaller vessels such as Captain Cook cruises. We have just returned from an 18 day Sydney to Hawaii cruise - fantastic!!
Possibly one of our favourite places is St Paul de Vence, north west of Nice, France, but that is closely followed by Santorini in the Greek Islands. This year we visited the USA and I loved Vegas! (coming from a complete non-gambler!!)
Maurice loves to draw and paint, play golf. I love going to the theatre, movies, trying to learn to play golf and currently learning to speak French.

Maurice and I thoroughly enjoyed meeting so many lovely people today, looking forward to the next meetup.
