  • Description

    We have finished travelling for 2018.

    Ken is a maintenance manager/mechanic at a large wine processing plant. Marie is a midwife/child-health/nurse. We live on 2 acres in a 1850's house in South Australia. We also have a small hobby farm where we have restored a 1950's dairy into a small cottage. Ken has recently built his own 10 car, 2 story shed/garage which he is very proud of. We also operate a slate quarry on the weekends supplying slate to the local area. Ken restores veteran and vintage cars. That is how we came to visit Brittany for the first time in 2015. Marie has recently finished a Bachelor of Arts with a focus on history and international relations. We have found the best things about our holidays are the people we meet. We are looking to be helpful and friendly.
