I am a travel hungry flamenco dancer/teacher who visits Spain often. I share the home with my parents. My Dad is chatty and engaging and loves hiking up the mountains and forests. My Mom runs, loves to read and can often be found sitting cross legged on the patio absorbing the absolute beauty of our natural surroundings. We have travelled to Europe, USA. South America and the Middle East and are planning trips to Thailand and India shortly. When travelling, we visit all the major tourist attractions but are as keen to meet and speak to the local people and gain an insight into their everyday lives and the history that has shaped their society. We would be happy to share our history. We would also be very respectful of your need for privacy. Between us we are fluent in English and Afrikaans and a bit of Spanish and German.
