  • Description

    We are a friendly, very energetic, hands on, practical and fun couple. We have a lot of initiative, creativity (esp.for finding solutions) and love people. We have lots of skills between us and we feel a lot younger than the 102yrs of our combined ages :), but we love the knowledge and experience and hopefully wisdom? we have gained from having lived to that number. We normally live in beautiful Warburton Victoria Australia amoung the mountains with the Yarra River flowing through them. The community is very creative and vibrant there.

    We are flexible and enjoy having new experiences and also learning new skills while connecting with like minded and inspiring people from all over the world. We love learning about different cultures and connecting with the locals. We also enjoy creating lovely spaces. We ran our own successful Airbnb space for 3.5yrs and made lasting friendships from it.

    Angela is currently doing some solo travelling to countries where she can find interviewees for a new coffee table book project she is creating about people with Down syndrome around the world. It's aim is to show their beauty and worth, like anybody else . So if you know of anyone who has Down syndrome/Trisomy21 let us know! She launched her first book in 2017 From this place about women artists, here's the webpage fromthisplace.net and has now started posting current book images on intagram called sunfllowerchildrent21
