5 in NZ and 3 with our son in Florida.
Since 2004 when we did a 31 day Trafalgar trip through Europe , we have travelled every year. With our son and his wife and 3 grandchildren living in Florida ,we travel for 6 months of every year , trying to see as much as we can while enroute to stay in our Condo on their property.
Homeexchanges have made this very affordable.
