  • Descrição


    We are really excited for this opportunity for cultural Exchange. We have traveled quite extensively and taken cooking classes in many different countries and look forward to sharing our experiences. We love meeting new people from new cultures and look forward to sharing our own.

    I have a little experience in Spanish and French and consider myself a beginner with both languages.

    Oportunidades de intercâmbio cultural e aprendizado

    Vancouver Island is one of the best places in the world for hiking, camping, kayaking, fishing and outdoor activities in general. I would have to say to anyone in the world, experiencing the Pacific Northwest on our island and engaging in outdoors activities would be a fantastic cultural experience.

    We are both musicians and play together in some bands and individually in other projects. If someone is staying with us that has musical ability, they could join us in some rehearsals at some of the bands or we could just all find something to play together. If a person has less musical ability, of course they would still be welcome to come along to audit rehearsals.

    Kathryn plays in one group in particular that regularly features music written by women composers of modern Canadian classical music.

    We offer an apartment for the visitor to stay. It is self-contained and has it's own separate entrance. It is downstairs from the main floor where we live. We would be sharing meals in our house upstairs, although the apartment has it's own kitchen if the visitor would prefer to make any of their own meals. The apartment has a laundry for the guest's use and also has it's own deck.

    We have our own VW Westfalia and our driveway is certainly capable of holding a campervan or small motorhome. Trailers would not work however due to the driveway geometry.
