We are Debbie and Trevor, a semi retired couple who are happy to meet travellers wanting to sample life as a local in Perth, Western Australia.
We live in Attadale, a lovely riverside area in walking distance to the Swan River with excellent service to Perth and Fremantle.
We have three grown children and eight grandchildren, so life can be busy during school holidays. We are looking at retiring fully this year and and are starting to expand and enjoy our interests and pursuits. We have always enjoyed dancing together and head out regularly for a bit of ballroom or rock-n-roll dancing. The table tennis table is often set up at home but I (Debbie) play at different venues about 3 times a week. We like to keep pretty active and the family enjoy picnics or outings on a regular basis. Trevor is finding it hard to slow down so is often in his factory unit working with his machinery. However he loves movies so has a theatre room set up at home to relax in.
Although our working lives have limited our ability to get away we are now in a position to do some travelling of our own, so are now discovering the world at our own pace.
So when we are not travelling ourselves we would welcome easy going, friendly people to assist us with gardening, home maintenance work, cooking if interested and just general clearing and tidying up of the outdoor areas. Leaving plenty of time to sightsee of course.
