We are Ian and Linda Drake, happily retired teachers living in Cheltenham, England - the centre of the glorious Cotswold hills and many cultural events including music, folk, science, literary festivals. We have exchanged now for several years and met some wonderful Christians some of whom have become good friends. There are just the two of us and we live in a quietly situated three bedroom semi just outside of the town. Our last exchange was with a lovely family from Canada. As we have relations and friends in Australia and N.Z. we are not averse to long distant exchanges. Together we enjoy walking and Ian has a love of most things sporting.
