About Our Family

We are a couple ages 67 and 69. Our children (5) are growing up. We love to travel, in Iceland and also in other countries. We love to walk in mountains both in summer and winter. In our freetime we often paint with oil. And of course play with our 10 grand kids. We would like to travel to for example: Italy, France, Portugal or other countries in Europe. We are open for everything. We like most of all to travel in September or October. 2-4 week would be wonderful. But we are also ready for exchanges at different times. We can borrow our house in June from 15. - 30. and we can borrow your house in other time.
