Newly retired couple, experienced (pet) parents and home owners

About

We are Britta and Trevor, married for more than 30 years, have three adult children, plus one brand-new daughter-in-law.

We started our lives in Germany (Britta) and South Africa (Trevor), met whilst being grad students at Penn State, lived in the  UK, in Belgium, in Texas, in Cape Town, and in Canada. And then, in 2020, just before the pandemic hit, we decided to uproot ourselves one more time, to sunnier warmer climates and have since built a new life in Portugal (close to Lisbon).

Our many years of international work/lives abroad, have shaped our family. Our daughter lives and works in London.  Our eldest lives in Toronto.  Our second son and wife live in Seattle. Our parents are in Germany and South Africa – so family and friends are dotted all over the world.

We have owned a home for many years and home is important to us.  We are tidy, non-smokers, past pet owners.

Britta (57) worked in hospitality, marketing, and not-for-profit leadership and now spends her time learning Portuguese, writing, yoga, hiking and gardening.

Trevor (66) is consulting part-time, mostly virtually.  Trevor has been sailing and waterskiing, but now, in Portugal, no matter his age, is keen to improve his kite boarding skills. He too enjoys yoga, hiking and gardening.
