Our other daughter is a graduate from both Curtin University and the University of Western Australia and is currently working in the Mining Industry, Western Australia. We are non smokers. We have a keen interest in antiques, classical music, opera, history, photography and family genealogy. We enjoy walking, shopping and exploring cities, galleries and historical sites.

I am fortunate to have met in person Mr. and Mrs. Valerie and Des Appleton from Melbourne, Australia. They stayed for 10 days last July, in my Paris apartment. They are very careful and appreciative guests. I would highly recommend them to other Sabbatical Homes apartment owners, and I look forward to meeting the Appletons again in the future.
