  • Description

    We have decided to explore more of oz during the crazy times we are living in.
    We will be heading north through NSW and into QLD. Taking it slow. Then head west for WA. Will be heading down to Tassie early 2021 I'd say.
    We are pretty fit and healthy, we eat healthy fresh food from our garden most of the time.
    We are experienced travellers with a lot to offer (we think)
    Pete is a retired builder (carpenter by trade) with a wealth of experience in the building industry
    Gail is an interior designer but has been teaching piano (classical) for most of her working life
    We lived in the country on our own small farm before moving to Melbourne,
    so have experienced rural life, cutting and getting firewood in for the winter, feeding animals etc.
    For the past 12 years we have been buying old victorian style houses, renovating and selling, so we have experience restoring them to their former glory. Doing most of the work ourselves, carpentry, plastering, tiling, some plumbing, painting etc.
    We keep fit by cycling and walking and Pete is a surfer and swimmer, he is a qualified swim coach.
    Both play tennis, Gail is a qualified tennis coach.
    We have a productive vegie garden which produces all year, we know about composting and soil preparation.
    We are an easy going couple who don't mind getting in and working hard to achieve a desired result
    We love music, Gail is a classical pianist and Pete plays the sax
    We like good food and good conversation
