I am visiting Australia in order to reconnect with my mother's family. She passed in 2017, and she was from Melbourne, Australia with family scattered around Australia. I am also interested in exploring other parts of Australia.

I will be coming to the Melbourne area for a memorial service. I would like to take this opportunity to also visit other parts of Australia. I am open to exchanges for shorter time periods.
Lakes, mountains, and rivers are at your doorstep
My home is a 3 bedroom townhouse in a quiet neighbourhood. The kitchen is fully equipped for someone who loves to cook. It has a full-sized fridge, automatic dishwasher, and gas stove. There are also several gadgets: bread-maker, stand mixer, hand mixer, toaster, microwave, and more. On the back patio, there is a large barbeque with side-burner for outdoor cooking. There is also a cafe table and chairs for outdoor dining.
The bedrooms are of generous size. A king-sized bed in the master bedroom, which has its own bathroom and shower/bath. From the master bedroom you can see the surrounding mountains. The other two rooms have double-beds. The second bathroom upstairs has a toilet, sink, and shower/bath. The bathroom in the basement has a shower, toilet and sink.
A full-sized washer and dryer are in the basement, along with the camping equipment. There are 3 sleeping bags, 2 air mattresses, 4 tents, 2 foam mattresses, camp stove, coolers, and more. Everything you will need to enjoy the great outdoors.
Less than a kilometre away there is a pool and gym, and several playgrounds. There is also a river with lots of fish and a long walking path. Shops and several restaurants are very close.

We live in a beautiful neighbourhood. There are wide tree lined streets with several playgrounds nearby for young children. Vedder River is a 15 minute walk from our front door. There you can stroll along a path, ride bikes, or fish (salmon fishing in the spring and fall, sturgeon and trout in the summer, and steelhead fishing in the winter). During the summer people drift down in float tubes and rafts. There are a several white water rafting companies that operate on the further up river where there are rapids. Close by are two popular lakes, Cultus Lake and Chilliwack Lake. Hiking opportunities abound. My favourites are Teapot (easy) and Mount Cheam (intermediate). If you choose to hike Teapot look for teapots. Local hikers leave them strung in trees and resting on logs. Mount Cheam offers spectacular views and mountain meadows filled with flowers and blueberries.
We are connected to Vancouver via the TransCanada Highway. It is a 1-2 hour drive away depending on traffic and where in Vancouver you are headed.

We are an active family of three. We enjoy camping, hiking, canoeing, swimming, and cycling. Amber, 19, is an avid reader, and is interested in other cultures. Sophia, 15, is an active teenager and an honours student. We love adventure, and enjoyed our home exchanges in Europe. We want to really "live" in your community for our visit. Our chihuahua-jack russell cross, Lorenzo will be cared for by a family friend, so you might not get to meet him.
